Van Hunt’s early efforts drew acclaim for his production efforts and crafty songwriting, featured on recordings by such diverse artists as Dionne Farris, Rahsaan Patterson, and Cree Summer as well as the platinum-selling soundtrack, “Love Jones”.
Since then, he’s released numerous albums, including his Grammy Award-winning collaboration with John Legend and Joss Stone on the Sly and The family Stone tribute album, “Different Strokes for Different Folks.”
A charismatic and engaging live performer, Hunt has also attracted critical praise touring both as headliner as well as alongside such diverse acts as Kanye West, The Roots, Coldplay, Mary J. Blige, and Dave Matthews Band.
Demonstrating his eclectic style, Van Hunt’s fifth album “The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets” (2015), was inspired by the music of The Delfonics, Parliament-Funkadelic, Pink Floyd, and Billie Holiday.
