Canadian recording artist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jason Hunter, is a prolific song smith whose captivating original piano-based compositions from early in his career define his unique, philosopuhical and at times quirky flavour. His definitively original sound, occasionally teases listeners with subtle moments that emanate unintentional nuances of classic Billy Joel and vintage Supertramp.

Hunter's current album release called "Dirt Love" continues the legacy, yet also redefines his brand of music. "Dirt Love" is a magnificent and inspiring collection of songs that deliver a contemporary folk rock vibe, synergized with a dynamic element of grungy soul. He is supporting this album with anational radio campaign, tour and performances at select music industry conferences.

Influenced by the contrast between his family's rural evangelical roots, his youthful penchant desire for thrill-seeking, adventure and rebellion, this complex web has weaved an amazing storyteller. Being blessed in one moment and wandering to the wrong side of the tracks the next, tend to define this musical gem. Industry insiders associated with Julian Lennon and Blue Rodeo call his skills, "a brilliant natural gift."

Jason Hunter's gypsy soul has taken him around the world, through a plethora of interesting and eclectic experiences. His troubadour-like spirit and the passion to spread his musical gospel have his 2016 tour lining up across Canada, with stops in; Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montréal, Halifax and many more. This grouping of shows will include solo performances and full band engagements, with his stellar group of journeymen musicians called J. Hunter & The Supposed's.

With his best work always on the horizon, future chapters of his creativity are destined to continue to intrigue and engulf the thoughts of his ever-growing loyal following.
