About the Artist: Hunter is a stepping stone into the future of pop music. With his distinct R&B/New Wave sound, Hunter is sure to please the ears of all who listen. His debut solo album Pressure is out , so log in daily for updates and to hear new material from the album via the URL linked above.
Review: Listening to the first 2 tracks “Pressure” and “Dancin’ Man” (feat: Young Hoffa). I have to agree with the stepping stone comment in the first paragraph. Admittedly, there’s a whole lot of variety to these arrangements and performances. First: The impressive Hunter brings to the table some amazing songwriting skills, rap and vocal performances and a rock solid production virtuoso. Second: equally as impressive is his overall look and personal. Third: his overall sound and amazing vocal delivery is quite diversified. In fact one could classify Hunter as a Hip Hop, Dance-Pop combo. This is harder to do than it sounds. All songs are a skillful combination of all the aforementioned genera’s. Music will remind you of Kanye West, Beanie Sigel, Rick Ross, but I can also hear Nas, Freeway and even Memphis Bleek. Hunter is a triple threat and has the songwriting and entertaining presence make a big splash within the region. There’s also a unique quality to this catalogue that breaks the mold when compared to the overly predictable, forgetful music that’s been filling the airwaves lately. What am I trying to say — well let me start by saying there is nothing predictable and forgetful about Hunter. What’s more – not every square inch is filled with musical ambience delivered under duress — but musical space this allows the music to breathe on its own with passion that cannot be faked. Equally as impressive is how marketable this artist is as he has effectively found the voice for all frustrated pop music fans out there. It covers so much ground and despite this it manages to not spread itself to thin across to many lines — nice touch. This is harder to do than it sounds and can only be a by product of being ones self musically.
Top Tracks: Pressure, Dancin’ Man, Sexercise, Direction

Criticism: The CD spreads itself too thinly across to many genres in its attempt to everything to everyone. Hunter needs to narrow the fairway.
Conclusion: I’ve always said if you can play it a party, then it’s marketable. The music of Hunter is extremely marketable – with amazing songs and flavorful music that just makes you feel good.
