Island born Robert J. Hunter combines his gruff and powerful voice with the wild thud of overdriven blues guitar.
Currently touring his new album and fourth studio release, ‘The Robert J Hunter Band’ which features two 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, an honest record, not hidden behind makeup. Listen here: http://smarturl.it/RJHB
In 2017 Robert was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) with his powerful ballad, ‘Preacher’.
Following his set at The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival, The Robert J Hunter Band were chosen to compete in the UK Blues Challenge at Liverpool‘s legendary, Cavern Club.
Robert has supported the likes of Wilko Johnson, The Animals, Kris Barras and Sari Schorr, as well as being a regular on the UK festival circuit, as well performances across Europe. This is a road worn, dirty blues band that’s been honed to super tight perfection by sheer hard work and volume of shows.
