Performing music you can groove to, singer, guitarist and songwriter James Hunter will accompany Willie Nelson this evening. Hunter’s voice is smooth, brilliantly controlled and unapologetic and his music style harkens back to the days of classic ’50s and early ’60s R&B. Through his infectious vocal and guitar performances, clever songwriting and tight horn arrangements, Hunter proves to be a man of impeccable taste. This remarkable talent will perform timeless hits from his latest album, People Gonna Talk, here at the Fraze.
