Hunter Wolfe (Tulsa, OK) – National Slide Guitar Champion, two-time International Blues Challenge Showcase performer, and Blues Foundation Generation Blues recipient.
Hunter has performed with Legendary Mississippi Delta Bluesman, David Honeyboy Edwards at the famed Blues Alley in Washington, DC, and has opened for many major music acts including Robin Trower and Kansas.
He attended Fernando Jones’ Columbia College Blues Camp in Chicago, IL and subsequently did two speaking engagements at the College focused on playing the blues and the use of a slide in his music, and in the summer of 2009 Hunter embarked on his first overseas tour, a 10-engagement stint in London, England.
ARE, who co-wrote The Go album with Hunter stands strong in her own right. She has shared the stage with players such as Darrell Rose (Dave Matthews Band) and Bo Bobbic (The Clovers), and along with Hunter, sat in with the P-funk band Let The Monkey Go.
The Go is Hunter’s first full-length album, recorded by Bobby Read at Small World Audio near Wolfe’s current home in Virginia. In his 25 years of recording, Read has produced many records in several different genres and as the horn player for Bruce Hornsby, has two Gold Records to his credit.
For the genre bending The Go album, anchored by Hunter’s vocals and various guitar stylings and ARE’s signature drums, together creates a sound that sets them apart most other up and coming breakthrough Duos..
The Go also features guest artists and duets, one with Cassie Taylor who also played bass on three tracks.
Hunter’s first release was an EP-CD in 2010, Traces and Chains, which was co-produced with Dale Russell, Record Producer and guitarist for the Canadian band The Guess Who.
