British soul powerhouse The James Hunter Six returns to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Englishman James Hunter burst onto the scene 10 years ago with his U.S. debut “People Gonna Talk”, topping the Billboard Blues Chart, earning a Grammy nomination and attracting universal acclaim from critics and his fans – including Van Morrison, Sharon Jones, and Allen Toussaint. His follow-ups, “The Hard Way” and “Minute By Minute”, further cemented Hunter’s reputation as a soul powerhouse, heralded for his talents both as a live performer and perhaps even more so as a songwriter, with The New Yorker describing his “tight, taut compositions” as “rooted in American soul music without being bound to it”. Now Hunter is back with his fourth album, “Hold On!”, marking his debut on Daptone Records, America’s premier soul imprint and Hunter’s second collaboration with famed producer Gabriel Roth, aka Bosco Mann. It also marks a cumulative and consecutive total of 48 original songs written exclusively by Hunter, without resorting to a single covered recording.
