The Hunts are a seven-piece indie folk family band consisting of twin sisters Jenni and Jessi Hunt and their five brothers Josh, Jordan, Justin, Jonathan, and Jamison. Raised in a small three-bedroom house on a large plot of land in Chesapeake, Virginia, the Hunt children were each taught violin by their mother Sandy, a fiddle teacher, before moving on to their respective instruments. Their father Clint, an arborist and part-time musician, would perform locally with his wife, and as their children grew, the duo would swell in size to include their growing musical family. Eventually the Hunt siblings formed their own band, inspired by the sounds of the indie folk boom of the late 2000s, layering dense harmonies and incorporating fiddle, guitar, banjo, ukulele, and other folk instrumentation into their folk-pop sound. After several years of touring the country, The Hunts attracted the attention of Cherrytree Records/Interscope which released their 2014 EP Life Was Simple. Their full-length debut, Those Younger Days, followed in 2015. ~ Timothy Monger
