James Hunter Six
Presented by Crazy Mama's Concerts and WCBE
Over the span of 30 years, James Hunter has worked on the railway, busked in the streets of London, provided backup vocals and guitar for Van Morrison, played clubs and theaters all over the world, written scores of original songs, and recorded some of the most original and honest rhythm and soul albums of the last two decades. By 2006, Hunter was recognized with a nomination for a Grammy Award (Best Traditional Blues Album for People Gonna Talk (Rounder, 2006)) and an American Music Award (Best New/Emerging Artist). He and his band then hit the road for a decade of extensive touring and recorded critically-acclaimed studio albums–The Hard Way (Hear Music, 2008), Minute by Minute (Fantasy, 2013), Hold On! (Daptone, 2016), and Whatever it Takes (Daptone, 2018). By 2016, MOJO Magazine had crowned him “The United Kingdom’s Greatest Soul Singer.”
In the early ‘90s, Van Morrison recruited Hunter to sing backup on the road touring and on two albums, A Night in San Francisco (1994) and Days Like This (1995). In the years to follow, Hunter opened shows for Aretha Franklin, Etta James, BB King, Willie Nelson, and Tom Petty, and headlined clubs, theaters, and festivals in Europe, Australia, and the United States.
