THE CLOSEST A WHITE SINGER CAN GET TO
SAM COOKE! THE SOULFUL VOICE DREW THE
ATTENTION OF VAN MORRISON, WHO APPEARED
ON HUNTER’S DEBUT ALBUM

Back to Blues Heaven here...

British James Hunter from Colchester and his band ‘Six’ live and breathe for sixties soul and blues as if they had found a hole in time and had flown straight into this century. His career started in 1986 with the band ‘Howlin’ Wilf and the Vee-Jays’, who then released  their first album titled ‘Cry Wilf’. Later he released another 3 albums with the band. He spent much of his time during the nineties at clubs in London, such as ‘The 100 Club’ in Oxford Street. Hunter’s soulful style caught the attention of Van Morrison, which led to a support tour with Morrison at the beginning of the nineties, and later Morrison offered himself to be a guest star, singing the backing vocals on James Hunter’s first solo album, ‘Believe What I Say’ in 1996. Hunter’s first solo album in the US was released in 2006 – the breakthrough album ‘People Gonna Talk’, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album at the 49th Grammy Awards show.

James possesses an impressive soul falcetto, so if you are a fan of the late Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland etc, James Hunter is here to set Arena Nord on fire, on Saturday Nov. 4th
