Two amazing acts for the price of one!
When James Hunter opened for Susan Tedeschi last year at the Ballroom he blew the capacity crowd away. Hunter's voice has the kind of depth and nuance that invites comparisons to Sam Cooke; his songwriting craft and impassioned performances recall Them-era Van Morrison - and like those artists, Hunter's music is timeless, sounding instantly classic and perpetually modern. He recorded 'People Gonna Talk' at Liam Watson's famed Toe Rag Studios in London (also home to the White Stripes' Grammy-winning, platinum 2003 release 'Elephant'). Vintage analogue equipment is de rigueur at Toe Rag, and 'People Gonna Talk' was recorded entirely "live" - without any overdubs, computers, or even headphones - resulting in a rich, warm sound that practically dares the uninitiated to guess its date of origin.
The fourteen songs on 'People Gonna Talk' were all written by Hunter. From the tight & right ska shuffle of the album's title track (with gorgeous string quartet accompaniment), to the locomotive groove of "Talkin' 'Bout My Love" to the hushed ballad "Mollena" which rests on a simple acoustic guitar/saxophone melody bed, the caliber of Hunter's compositions leave the listener stumped as to how this singular artist has gone undiscovered up to now.

Robert Cray was among artists such as Stevie Ray VAughan and George Thorogood, who got wider radio airplay and regular MTV video exposure during hte lat 1980s. It was during this time that Cray defined himself as a blues legend and toured the world none stop performing with peers such as Albert Collins, Freddie King and Muddy Waters when he was just 20 years old.
Cray's monster tour schedule, multiple Grammy nods and legendary sound have made him one of the hottest touring acts of the last two decades.
This should be one of the hottest shows on the beach this year, don't miss out.
