A Best Voice in Soul at the Bull Run

June 17, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

Grammy Nominated, Van Morrison-approved Blues musician James Hunter, brings “one of the best voices” in soul to the Bull Run on June 17.

It takes you by surprise just how good James Hunter is. Van Morrison called him one of the best voices and best kept secrets in British R&B and soul.” In the early Nineties, Van Morrison caught Hunter at a gig in Wales and subsequently hired him as a backup singer for several years of touring and recording. James appeared on Morrison’s live album, “A Night in San Francisco,” and on the studio set, “Days Like This.” Hunter’s “People Gonna Talk” album was among the Top Ten “Best Albums of 2006” as cited by Mojo, USA Today and the WFUV listeners’ poll. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Tradi­tional Blues Album and Hunter was nominated as Best New/Emerging Artist in the annual Americana Music Awards.

Over the span of 30 years, he’s worked on the railway, busked in the streets of London, provided backup vocals and guitar for Van Morrison, played clubs and theatres all over the world, written scores of original songs, and recorded some of the most original and honest rhythm & soul albums of the last two decades. Hunter has toured extensively around the world on the club, theatre, and festival circuits, steadily growing a dedicated audience comprised of hardened gig-goers, old-school baby boomers, and young hipsters alike. The New Yorker describes his “tight, taut compositions” as “rooted in American soul music without being bound to it.”
