Hunt For Hunter

 About Hunt For Hunter:

Hunt for Hunter is an alt-folk rock band based in Brooklyn NY. Founded in 2013 by Michael Hunter and Ian Hunt, they typically perform as an acoustic duo using their skills as multi-instrumentalists to create an impressive amount of sound.  Hunter plays violin and sings lead, while Hunt plays acoustic guitar, percussion with his feet and sings backing vocals, all at the same time. It’s a unique display, and both musicians pride themselves on being engaging, energetic performers who give their all at every show.

Their original songs reflect the varied influences of both musicians, drawing inspiration equally from indie folk artists like Mumford & Sons, Nickel Creek, and Wilco as they do from metal, punk, and hip hop artists. And though they love performing their own material they’re equally at home playing covers that they’ve creatively re-worked to suit their sound (their Disney medley is a fan-favorite).

While the duo is particularly well-suited for coffeehouse type events, Hunt for Hunter is a remarkably flexible band also capable of three and four person lineups. The trio adds more energy and sound into the mix while keeping the acoustic vibe intact and the quartet is basically a full blown rock ‘n roll band, complete with head-banging violin/guitar duets and epic covers of songs by artists like Muse, Coheed & Cambria, Living Colour, etc.  For gigs within driving distance Hunt for Hunter is capable of providing and running their own sound, and can play sets lasting anywhere from 45 minutes to 3+ hours.
