Van Hunt

R&B multi-instrumentalist Van Hunt, born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, grew up surrounded by the pimp lifestyle of his father. A soundtrack of classic soul and contemporary R&B was his backdrop and Hunt immersed himself in the tones and moods of it all. A move from the Midwest to Atlanta in his early twenties allowed Hunt to hone his sound. He'd been playing guitar and writing songs since his teens, so naturally a career in music was on the horizon. Capitol inked him a deal in 2003 and his self-titled debut arrived in February 2004. Appearances on Soul Train, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and NPR coincided with the release of Van Hunt's double single "Dust" and "Seconds of Pleasure"; the album peaked within the Top 40 of Billboard's R&B Albums chart. The strong follow-up, On the Jungle Floor, was issued in 2006 and topped the Heatseekers chart but failed to leave much of an impression otherwise. Hunt then shifted to Blue Note; promotional copies of Popular, his first album for the label, were mailed out, but the release was ultimately shelved. Hunt subsequently assembled Use in Case of Emergency, consisting of material from his vault, and provided it as a free download for his followers. In 2011, through his own label, the Sony RED-distributed Godless Hotspot, Hunt issued the bold What Were You Hoping For?, his third proper officially released album. Some crowd-funding assistance facilitated The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets, his relatively subdued fourth album, released on Godless Hotspot 2015. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Phenomenal artist who makes both thought/emot i o n provoking music. His music is true art because it's timeless. Play any of his older tracks & it sounds as if it was recorded today. It's relevance still astounds me. I've been a fan of VH since the beginning in 2003. The 1st time I heard him I was blown away like... Well... Dust, no pun intended. I saw him in concert in the ATL/'08 at the Apache Club, it was a small & exclusive engagement. He killed it. He's had decent notoriety. Had his music on

His music is unique, funky, soulful, and somewhat psychedelic. Pure perfection!! The melodies, the hooks, the lyrics! and he manages to sum up the complication s of relationship s perfectly. Love him

Van is the truth. Talented and just as nice. He does conjure up the greatest such as Sly, Prine and Curtis Mayfield

I'm a songwriter for Universal/Co n c o r s e Music in Los Angeles and I have to say..."This Brother Is So Underated". He's a cross between the great Sly Stone and Prince with the charisma of Jimmy Hendrix. Great songwriter ! I love this artist. I hope to work with him one day. Dytanian.

People please give this Artist a chance. I just stumbled upon his music this month & wish I had earlier. Oh well, as the saying goes, Better now than never. My all time favorite track so far, Her December. Super sultry, sassy, & sexy w/just the right touch of Latin Groove. Much success to Van Hunt, Peace!

I absolutely love Van Hunt! I feel as if it is my personal mission to inform folks about this amazing artist. It's a shame that he is so underated. However, keep on doing what you do Van! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent with the world.

loving this artist deeply. Never thought I would dig an artist as much as I do Prince but this brother makes me feel sexy as his voice wraps lust around my body. So smooth and true talent. I have been 'Hunt'ing for this sound and Van is it. I agree with Janeen, he has a curtis mayfield and Prince vibe and sound that is legendary in his own time.

This man is a very talented but underrated artist. Reminds me a lot of Curtis Mayfield. I hope he makes a comeback in the near future.

I have the great pleasure to call Van Hunt, Sr. one of my best podnahs and through him I was introduced to his "chip", Van, Jr. and I discovered ONE BADDD BROTHER!!! And, not just the fact that we are both Morehouse men, but this brother can write, play that guitar, and sing like we haven't heard since the peak days of Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, and Al Green!!
Van's story is truly the story of what good management or the lack thereof can mean to an artist's career.
In Van, we have
