Hilary Hughes is the Music Editor of the Village Voice. In addition to the Voice -- which has counted her a contributor since 2012 -- Hughes has written about music, film, television and entertainment for a handful of publications including Esquire, Rolling Stone, Elle, USA Today, Fuse, and Billboard. Her bread and butter is rock, folk, pop, and festival coverage. A Bostonian by birth and Brooklynite by choice, she got her start writing about the local music scene in her hometown for DigBoston before joining the alt weekly's staff as its Arts and Entertainment Editor from 2010-2012. Aerosmith's "Cryin'" is her go-to karaoke pick and she blames her regional bias for that.
