(FROM HIS WEBSITE)
With accomplishments that only a seasoned veteran entertainer can claim, Hunter has mesmerized U.S. presidents, Congress and CNN with his remarkable talent (currently able to play over 12 instruments).
As a young child he appeared on network television shows and wowed audiences with his gifted ability to play diatonic accordion and sing in Cajun french (the traditional instrument & language of his heritage) and english. He’s appeared in movies (THE APOSTLE, ALL THE KING’S MEN, MY DOG SKIP) and enjoys acting, but music is truly his passion.
An incredibly promising songwriter, his ability to communicate with the public thru both lyric and melody, is astounding for someone his age. He has been contributing songs since recording his first project at age four in 1995.
A consummate live performer, on stage he takes charge of his talented backing musicians and oversees all production as well.
A blue-eyed, blonde haired young man who writes about life and love, performs with the grace of someone twice his age and most importantly is spiritually grounded with the American values of GOD, family and country.
