James Hunter has certainly paid his dues. 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. By 2006, Hunter was recognized with nominations for a GRAMMY®Award (“Best Traditional Blues Album”for People Gonna Talk(Rounder)) and an American Music Award (“Best New/Emerging Artist”).

He and his band then hit the road for a decade of extensive touring and recorded three additional critically-acclaimed studio albums—The Hard Way(Concord), Minute by Minute(Concord) andHold On!(Daptone). By 2016, MOJO magazine had crowned him “The United Kingdom’s Greatest Soul Singer.”On February 2, 2018, renownedsoul label Daptone Recordswill release James Hunter’smost ambitious albumto date, Whatever It Takes, offering ten new and original songs written by Hunter and recorded live to 8-track tape by Daptone’s two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Gabriel Roth.
