Biography

A classical and jazz trained pianist, newcomer Mitchell Hunter found his way into pop music when he began writing and singing his own songs at age fourteen. Many of these initial songwriting experiments ended up on his debut album several years later. With the release of 'people will believe anything if you whisper it' in 2004, Hunter enjoyed the success of three radio singles (including the Top 20 hit “They Might Say”), received an ECMA nomination for Best Pop Record, and garnered three Music Nova Scotia Award Nominations for Best New Artist, Best Pop Record, and Best Male Artist.

Hunter has worked hard at honing his skills as a live performer and storyteller. With the ability to provoke emotions from his audience that range from laughter during a storytelling session, to tears during a haunting ballad, Hunter is winning the hearts of audiences everywhere he plays. He has shared stages with R&B singer and Canadian Idol runner-up Gary Beals, East Coast pop-rock group Crush, Canadian rock legend Kim Mitchell, and ECMA winning Folk singer Dave Gunning, proving his music and appeal bends genres and generations.

After taking some time off from music to finish his degree, Hunter will unleash his new EP "signals and goodbyes" this July.
