Huntertones — Passport

Huntertones brings people together around the globe with fun, imaginative and fearless music. Their high energy, horn-driven sound fuses inspired improvisation and adventurous composition melding jazz, funk, rock, and soul. Adding depth and contrast to their live set, Huntertones shift from a dynamic six-piece ensemble to a trio featuring saxophone, sousaphone, and beat-boxing, keeping their listeners’ eyes and ears open at every turn.

Huntertones formed in Columbus, Ohio at The Ohio State University and hosted their first shows at a house on Hunter Avenue. They have since relocated to New York City, released three albums, and toured North and South America, Europe and Africa — experiences which have pushed the band to expand even further, stylistically. What started as a group of classmates finding a voice has developed into a highly collaborative group of musicians traveling, sharing, and growing together.

Individually, members of Huntertones have compiled a diverse resume of collaborations with top artists in pop, jazz, soul, and musical theater. This includes work with Jon Batiste and Stay Human, O.A.R., Snarky Puppy, Stevie Wonder, Andy Grammer, Ed Sheeran, Allen Stone, Gary Clark Jr., Phillip Phillips, We Banjo 3, Umphrey’s McGee, Vulfpeck, and more.

Mitch Bradford — Love Is Kind

Image result for mitch bradford love is kind

Born and raised in the small town of Brownsville, TX, Mitch Bradford discovered music at a young age, immersing himself in the sounds of Neil Young, Jackson Browne, and Joni Mitchell.

In 2016, Mitch left his job in the tech world to purse his passions for music and film full-time.

Fast forward two years later, Mitch teamed up with GRAMMY-AWARD WINNING producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Zac Brown) to write and record his debut album.

With sessions in Memphis, TN but drawing inspiration from his new West Coast home, Mitch sought out a classic ‘California country’ feel – something that hearkens back to the 1970s folk-rock ‘Laurel Canyon Sound’ of the Eagles, Joni Mitchell, and James Taylor – but with a modern twist.
