Dan Hill
Wiki

Dan Hill (born Daniel Grafton "Dan" Hill IV, 3 June 1954, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian pop singer and songwriter. He had two major hits with his songs, "Sometimes When We Touch" and "Can't We Try," a duet with Vonda Shepard.

Hill is the son of social scientist and public servant Daniel G. Hill, and brother of the author Lawrence Hill. He studied guitar in his teens, leaving high school at 17 to work as songwriter for RCA. At one point he was working for the Ontario Provincial Government, delivering office supplies, while performing at the Riverboat at night, before releasing his first LP, Dan Hill. His wife is lawyer Beverly Chapin-Hill, with whom he wrote the songs "Can't We Try" and "(Can This Be) Real Love". Although some sources have incorrectly stated that he was married to American country singer Faith Hill, her surname came from her first marriage to an unrelated Nashville record executive named Daniel Hill.

In 1977 Hill recorded the ballad "Sometimes When We Touch." He also wrote the lyrics and was assisted in the music by Barry Mann for the album from the same year, Longer Fuse, and it was released as a single. It was Hill's biggest hit, peaking at #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Tina Turner covered the song in 1978 on her post-Ike album, Rough.
