Hunter & The Bear
Okay, so, Hunter & The Bear followed me on Twitter a little while back and when most musicians follow me I like to give their stuff a listen because I absolutely love finding new music. Basically, I fell in love immediately, these guys are a great mix of two of my favourite bands Mumford & Sons and Canadian Newfie band Great Big Sea.
Hunter & The Bear is a British band based in London, England. Artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bruce Springsteen and The Band inspired Will and Jimmy who started to write and perform as a duo. Jimmy took responsibility for lead guitar, mandolin and vocals while Will played rhythm guitar, kick drum and joint lead vocals. They moved to London in 2012 to share their talents and music. The band is now made up of four artists, Will (lead vocals & rhythm guitar), Jimmy (lead guitar, mandolin & vocals), Gareth (drums & vocals) and Chris (bass & vocals).
