Singer-songwriter-instrumentalist Phoebe Hunt just can’t stay planted in one spot for long, and that insatiable wanderlust drives everything she does — from mastering myriad musical styles to living the gypsy life of a touring musician.
An Austin-to-Nashville émigré, the gifted Americana-pop artist headed to another musical center, Los Angeles, to record her self-titled debut EP with producer Matt Rollings, who helped create a captivating introduction to her solo work. Propelled by her genre-jumping fiddle, Hunt wraps her sultry voice and sincere lyrics right around listeners’ souls with each song.
Leaping easily from country to Western swing to jazz, gypsy and blues, she also shifts moods from innocent and playful to seductive and intimate in the blink of a beat. But the quality that shines through most of all is her honesty.
A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Hunt spent her college years touring around the Lone Star state with folk trio the Hudsons. After graduation, she hopped in the Belleville Outfit’s van, spending four years touring nationally with the renowned Americana act. She also shared songwriting and lead-vocal credits on two albums.
Hunt spent the past year in Nashville, honing her songwriting skills and touring with Kentuckian cellist and songwriter, Ben Sollee. She also spent time traveling in India, where she donated her time and passions to a remote village school in the Bhatti Mines outside of Delhi, further expanding her understanding of different people and cultures.
Compassion and grace inform Hunt’s ever-evolving world vision of music’s power to heal, and that vision has become the focus of her musical journey.
