Grammy-Nominated James Hunter Six To Play Brixton Bank Holiday Bash This Sunday
It’s been a decade since the Englishman James Hunter burst onto the scene with his U.S. debut People Gonna Talk, topping the Billboard Blues chart, earning a Grammy-nomination, and attracting universal acclaim from critics and his fans—including Van Morrison, Sharon Jones, and Allen Toussaint. Now ten years on James Hunter is back with his fourth album, Hold On! marking his debut on Daptone Records, America’s premier soul imprint and Hunter’s second collaboration with famed producer Gabriel Roth aka Bosco Mann.
Over the last decade 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. His follow-ups The Hard Way and Minute By Minute, further cemented Hunter’s reputation as a soul powerhouse, heralded for his talents both as a live performer and perhaps even more so as a songwriter, with The New Yorker describing his “tight, taut compositions” as “rooted in American soul music without being bound to it.”

Priced at just £4 with entertainment until very late, this Bank Holiday Bash showcases the very best in modern day soul and blues.
