LAURIN HUNTER - EPK

BIO

Born in the Bay Area of Northern California, Laurin Hunter's musical journey began when he picked up a guitar at the age of ten. He spent the majority of his teenage years writing and performing with several rock and metal bands all over California. However, it wasn't until miraculously surviving a near fatal automobile accident that he decided it was essential to use his second chance at life to do what made him the happiest.

 

Shortly afterwards, he made the move to Nashville TN to pursue a career as a singer/songwriter. He released his debut self-titled EP in 2016 and has since written and recorded several songs that will be included on his upcoming project. Laurin's single, "Silver and Blue" was selected out of thousands of songs as a winner of the West Coast Songwriters competition. Laurin also has cuts with other artists such as Ian Musnick - "Cowgirl Jo" (900,000 + Streams) and Cody Lovaas - "Just So You Know" (200,000 + Streams). He's racked up over 1 Million streams on Spotify as an independent artist and has cultivated a large, supportive worldwide audience online.

 

Incorporating elements of folk, pop, rock and world music, Laurin is an example of an artist who joyfully defies limitations. His intricate and creative guitar work combined with a melodic and emotional vocal delivery is intended to take listeners on a journey they've never been on before.

" This track from Laurin Hunter has so many of the key elements of good music for me. Hunter’s guitar and vocal are both extremely quality. I try not to throw around iconic comparisons too often, but Hunter has a real vintage Stephen Stills sound to his work.. The romantic context is wonderful and the performance is exceptional." - Ear To The Ground Music

 

"The sheer skill the folk singer-songwriter displays is irresistible and calls you onward into a world drenched in greying storm clouds. His soul rips open, and every emotion he’s possibly ever felt comes gushing out of him. And there’s no possible way of holding it back. And that’s quite alright."   - B-Sides & Badlands
