James Hunter is a modern singer who unapologetically embraces the R&B sounds of the 50s and early 60s. Hes developed a sizeable following in the UK for his brand of authentic soul music, which he is now bringing to the US. He found a fan in legendary singer Van Morrison, and ended up touring with him on both sides of the Atlantic. At a time when radio is spewing a fair amount of anti-music, there’s a lot of appeal to his work that basks in engaging tunes, soulful vocals and the simple arrangements of guitar, bass, saxophone and drums.
