"Ken Kelley - Moncton Times & Transcript"

“One listen to the first single “One Good Reason” (which cracked top 30 in Canada) from upcoming record Warhorses reveals a band with energetic, power-pop sensibilities and arguably endless potential for success.” – Ken Kelley, Times & Transcript Review - Moncton Times & Transcript Review


"Bob Mersereau"

“It's one of those discs that works great on repeat, because each time through, I just keep liking the songs more. This, to me, is what a rock and roll record is supposed to be, and it's been awhile since I've felt that way.” – CBC’s Bob Mersereau, Author Top 100 Canadian Albums Top 100 Canadian Singles

"East Coast Countdown"


Climbing the music charts
Published Friday June 6th, 2008

By Shawn Merrithew


A local musician and his band are putting a new "Face" on the East Coast Music scene.

Recently, Andrew Hunter and the Gatherers – Matt Budreski and Mike Barrett – made the East Coast Countdown, a weekly, nationally-syndicated radio show which features the 10 hottest songs from Atlantic Canadian artists as voted by the listeners.

The band's single Face made the countdown list and was selected as one of the Producer's Picks.

Hunter said the band is excited about the recent exposure as it puts the band among the likes of Matt Mays, Joel Plaskett, Damhnait Doyle and Great Big Sea.

"We are pretty stoked to be on the list," said Hunter. "First we were number 10, then number eight, and now we have held on for four weeks at number four. It is pretty cool to be on that list with all of the other artists."



"I didn't know anything about it, so it kind off caught me by surprise," he explained.

Hearing his latest single on the radio is great, said Hunter. He calls it an accomplishment. While he has heard his songs on the airwaves before on EZ Rock 104 FM in Woodstock, he said hearing it on the East Coast Countdown is extra special.

"It is not just some random play or a feature," he explained. "It is the public's opinion, so it is special and it feels pretty cool."

He added the recent exposure and air play certainly help the band's popularity on the music scene, and he is seeing in at performances. People are coming up after the show and saying they heard the band's song on the countdown, he said.

"It is played across the country – out to British Columbia and up to Nunavut – so we're getting to a whole new audience," he added.

Hunter urges those wishing to listen to the East Coast Countdown or vote for their favourite artist to do so at www.eastcoastcountdown.com.

He hopes the countdown exposure will help boost the trio's blossoming career.

In the meantime, Hunter said, the band is staying busy for the summer. He said the group has numerous shows booked for a summer tour, along with plans for a new album. He added a music video shoot is also in the works. Hunter noted the band will return to the region to perform at the Larlee Creek Hullabaloo on Aug. 23. - The Bugle-Observer (New Brunswick)

"Album review by Genevieve McIntyre of The Coast."

Andrew Hunter & The Gatherers
self-titled EP (indie)
by Genevieve MacIntyre

Andrew Hunter & The Gatherers' latest EP gives these fellas the right to feel they're on "On a Cloud," as the fifth track enforces. The eight tracks on the album, recorded in Halifax at Codapop Recording Studios, definitely hint at Matt Mays' strong guitar riffs, reflective lyrics of Neil Young and the heavy vocals of Eddie Vedder. It's clear that Hunter has found a blend of influences from his surroundings and travels, including the beat of surfing waves in both Maui and Nova Scotia, and growing up in small-town New Brunswick. Hitting the radio next for this trio is "The Feel Good Song," starting March 23. - thecoast.ca

Bio

Multiple ECMA / NSMW nominees Andrew Hunter & The Gatherers are a power trio with a singer-songwriter at heart. These boys know how to rock, plain and simple. They also know how to write, proof being the lead single from Warhorses, "One Good Reason" cracked the top 30 charts nationally. 2009's debut single "The Feel Good Song" got their foot in the door cracking the top 40. They have toured acros
s Canada and since become a familiar name at radio thanks to the continued support and spins from coast to coast and sharing stages with The Trews, Hey Ocean!, Joel Plaskett, Matt Mays, and many more.

It's one of those discs that works great on repeat, because each time through, I just keep liking the songs more. This, to me, is what a rock and roll record is supposed to be, and it's been awhile since I've felt that way. CBCs Bob Mersereau, Author Top 100 Canadian Albums Top 100 Canadian Singles
