Robert J Hunter
Island born Robert J. Hunter combines his gruff and powerful voice with the wild thud of overdriven blues guitar.
His powerful debut album, ’Songs for the Weary’, received blues chart success and critical acclaim and the single release, ‘Demons’, reached number one in the UK iTunes Blues Chart.
‘Before the Dawn’ followed late 2015 showing that Robert had matured and developed as a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. Robert then released a solo acoustic album, ‘Where I’m From’ on independent label, Spiritual Records.
Robert’s new album and fourth studio release, ‘The Robert J Hunter Band’ was released February 2018 and features the iTunes number one singles, ‘Wait Your Turn’ and ‘Suzy’. This self-titled LP captures The Robert J Hunter Band in their most organic and raw form. Recorded live, this is an honest record, not hidden behind the makeup of over production.
In 2017 Robert was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) with his powerful ballad, ‘Preacher’ which was chosen from 16,000 entries.
Following his set at The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival, The Robert J Hunter Band were chosen as the fifth and final act to compete in the UK Blues Challenge at Liverpool‘s legendary, Cavern Club.
This is a road worn, dirty blues band that’s been honed to super tight perfection by sheer hard work and volume of shows.
