The James Hunter Six
The Vee-Jays became a popular fixture on the UK club circuit, and in the early 90s they caught the eye of Van Morrison, who asked them to back him at the Belfast Telegraph Awards in 1991. Subsequently, Hunter was invited to sing backing vocals with Morrisons touring band he appears on 1994s A Night In San Francisco live CD and on 1995s studio album Days Like This. Returning the compliment, the Belfast soul man sings on Hunters 1996 album Believe What I Say.By the early 2000s, however, Hunter found himself down on his luck and working as a labourer in west London but soon realised it was more lucrative and better fun to earn a living busking. The low point came when a homeless female squatted down and relieved herself in front of him while he performed in the street (Everyones a critic!). Slowly pulling himself out of this slough of despond, with his trusted Six he cut the album that would ignite his career - 2006s People Gonna Talk, and relaunch his career.In the decade since, Hunter has worked tirelessly on the road and in the studio, honing is craft. However Hold On! is something deeper than just another notch in his belt. From the driving stompers, to the bubbling rumbas, the record drips with the rawness and feeling that Daptone fans have become accustomed to, and cuts straight to the soul of the man who James Hunter fans have come to love. It is truly an artists vision come to fruition.
