James Hunter
Soul stirring Brit James Hunter returns to New York City on August 20 for a second summer show, this time with Chris Isaak. The show marks the end of a incredible summer for Hunter. His sophomore album, 'The Hard Way, ' debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues chart and has remained there for six weeks and counting. Recently James made appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien (June 9) and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (July 14). The current issue of People magazine asserts, “Sorry, Amy: Apparently the U.K.'s retro-soul movement isn't all about the ladies. On his latest set of good old-fashioned R&B, this British crooner continues to be possessed by the ghost of Ray Charles."

Hunter has received rave reviews on tour this summer. “Hunter is a man born to perform, “ proclaims the Boston Globe, “Onstage he pulls out all the stops." The Austin American Statesman declared “the tone and suppleness of Hunter's voice are marvels... from a searing falsetto to a thrilling scream... He's also a tremendous guitar player - both rhythm and lead." As Rolling Stone recently put it, “this guy's got fire in his gut."
