James Hunter has certainly paid his dues. Over the span of 30 years, he’s workedon the railway, buskedin the streets of London, providedbackup vocals and guitar for Van Morrison, playedclubs and theatres all over the world, writtenscores of original songs, and recordedsome 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 recordedthree additionalcritically-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.At age 16, Hunter left school in Colchester, Essex and began working for the railway, while honing his blues guitar and singing skills. Six years later, he played his first paid gig at the Colchester Labour club (as “Howlin’Wilf and the Vee-Jays”).In the decades since, James Hunter has gone from singer/songwriter to labourer and back again. After releasing one album in 1986, Hunter and his band became a popular fixture on the UK club circuit and radio waves. His gritty, soulful voice has maturedwell along with his musicianship and songwriting. In the early 90’s,Van Morrisonrecruited Hunter to sing backup on the road touring and on two albums, A Night in San Francisco andDay's Like This.In the years to follow, Hunter opened shows for Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Willie Nelson,andTom Petty, and headlinedclubs and theatres in England, Europe, Australia and the United States.Throughout his celebratedcareer, Hunter has remained true not only to his musical roots, but to his loyal bandmates—the newest of which joined him over 20 years ago. As always, he steps into the studio as one of the irreplaceable «The James Hunter Six»: Jonathan Lee, drums; Lee Badau, baritone saxophone; Damian Hand, tenor saxophone; Andrew Kingslow, keyboards/percussion; and Jason Wilson, bass. Hunter’s latestalbum, Whatever It Takes,was inspired in part by his new wife, Jessie. Originally from New Jersey,Jessie met James when –after hearing him on the radio –she turned up at a show in New York City. A year later, they were marriedin New Orleans and nowlive in Brighton on the south coast of England. James dedicates threesongs in particular to Jessie: “I Don’t Wanna Be Without You,”“I Got Eyes,”and“Whatever It Takes”—a song written to cheer her up during a rather grueling application process for UK residency.Whatever It Takesis The James Hunter Six’s third album working with Roth (AKA Bosco Mann,) who has long been a fan of Hunter's songwriting and appreciates his voice “not only for its natural beauty and grit, but for its honesty.”And Hunter, an equally uncompromising stickler when it comes to his music, notes that,“it’s a rare thing when a producer knows what you’re going for before you’ve told him. It’s good to be associated with a record company that ‘gets’ us.”
