Robert J. Hunter - Blistering Soul EP - 2014

The ‘Blistering Soul’ EP is a combination of the old and the new. 
A sign off for the past, and a snapshot of the future. 

''Rob has grown over the past year or so into a consummate performer, seemingly playing almost non-stop somewhere or other, and this had lead to him becoming the sort of person who, it seems, is incapable of putting on a bad show'' - Tom Girard, BBC Introducing. 

'Based in London, Hunter has a voice and guitar skills that most would kill for on their own but put the two together and we have something quite, quite special and unique. 
Hunter's voice is once again the main attraction and his world-weary style is so utterly believable as a well travelled Blues man that you could only expect him to have the look of a Seasick Steve or Muddy Waters. Whatever the man looks like, the important thing is that he sounds absolutely incredible and by golly you need to seek him out to improve your life.' - 

'Hurricane is a beautiful stripped back acoustic track, you feel that your in the room sat in front of Robert. Maybe in a tavern with a class of single malt whiskey by your hand. No back band, just a man and his acoustic guitar and a voice that’s so powerful.' - 

'We are only 8 days into 2014 and we can already safely say that we’ve found one of our gems of the year. It is rare that a blues or folky artist will sweep across Mute Print’s pages but every now and again we’re swept off our feet and drawn into a tornado of incredible gritty vocals and a guitar hook to die for.' -
