Stringed instruments, surrounded by enchanting harmonies and thrilling rhythms, invoke an organic yet transcendent sound.

All vocalists and multi-instrumentalists, The Hunts have been playing music for as long as they can remember. Early on, the kids took on their own music personalities and developed diverse talents. Instruments include fiddle, viola, bass, guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, keys, accordion, drums and percussion.

The Hunts have toured the country and worldwide for over 10 years now, performing at countless festivals, universities and performing arts centers. In November of 2012, they released their latest album We Were Young, which was produced by 13-time Grammy nominee Mark Carman at legendary recording studio The Tracking Room in Nashville. We Were Young features 10 original songs, each telling its own tale of youthful memories, conquering fears, aching hearts and inspiring journeys. The album’s first track, "Make This Leap,” started receiving airplay from key market radio stations almost immediately after its release and was picked up by Milk-Bone for a national commercial in May of 2013. The Hunts were selected for Taco Bell's 2013 "Feed the Beat" roster, and they signed a 6-album deal with CherryTree Records, a label under the umbrella of Interscope Records, in July 2013.

The Hunts also have a deep love for music education and missions work. They host a music camp for children and teens every summer in their hometown. While on the road, they offer workshops in strings, fiddle, guitar and songwriting. In the summers of 2012 & 2013, the seven Hunt siblings traveled to an orphanage on the island nation of Haiti and organized a two week music camp for over 100 Haitian children.
