It’s been 10 years since the Englishman James Hunter burst onto the scene with his U.S. debut People Gonna Talk, topping the Billboard Blues Chart, earning a Grammy nomination and attracting universal acclaim from critics and his fans – including Van Morrison, Sharon Jones, and Allen Toussaint. Over the last decade, he’s toured extensively around the world on the club, theater and festival circuits, steadily growing a dedicated audience comprised of hardened gig-goers, old-school baby boomers and young hipsters alike.
At age 53, Hunter feels he has finally found his home for making music. There are no clichéd throwback nods to a-time-gone-by here. These are forever songs crafted with immaculate care and ingenuity and sang with an effortless balance of tenderness and grit.
