James Hunter news

I saw JH6 live for the first time at Doheny Blues Fest in Orange County, Calif. a couple years ago and was blown away. Can't wait to hear his new stuff...

James Hunter follows up five critically acclaimed albums with his next recording, Whatever It Takes, for New York City’s Daptone Records. It is scheduled for international release on Feb. 2. The James Hunter Six and Daptone co-founder/producer Bosco Mann recorded 10 originals straight to tape at Daptone’s Penrose Studios in Riverside, Calif. 

As the first Brit to sign to Daptone Records, Hunter is revered by critics both in his native UK and stateside, his accolades include reaching #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart; a Grammy nomination for “Best Traditional Blues Album”; years as a singer touring and recording with Van Morrison; appearances on Conan, Later…with Jools Holland, and other late night TV shows.
