Matthew Austin Hunt
Singles and EPs
The musical trajectory of Matthew Austin Hunt was probably set for him when he was only 7. His grandfather, a Los Angeles recording artist in the late 1940’s, bought him his first guitar, and he was hooked. As a musician, his influences are vast. From the records his father played (like Jerry Jeff, Willie, and Merle, in addition to artists like CCR, Bill Withers, and Stevie Wonder) to crooners of his grandfather’s era like Perry Como, Bing Crosby, and Johnny Mathis, Hunt draws from a deep well of long-established classics. His own, more primary influences as a songwriter include the likes of Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, and The Turnpike Troubadours.
