== Early Years =
Being born and raised in Palm Springs, California, Hilton grew up around music. Hilton began teaching himself Elvis Presley songs at an early age. At the age of 13, his family moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he wrote his first song about a girl whom he attended school with. Hilton's family made another move back to Coachella Valley for high school, where, at La Quinta High School, he started a band with some of his classmates. The band didn't go anywhere, so Hilton began to enter open mic nights and went to local coffee shops to play his own music.
