Polymath, Van Hunt, born and raised in human nature, grew up surrounded by sweat and perfume. Hunt immersed himself in the tones and moods of it all.
A move from nowhere to out there in his early twenties allowed Hunt to hone his sound. Like his mother, earth, Hunt was a long time sufferer of asteroids, so a career in music seemed the path of least resistance. His self-titled debut arrived in February 2004. Appearances on Soul Train, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and NPR coincided with the release of Hunt's double-single Dust and Seconds of Pleasure. The follow-up album, On the Jungle Floor, was issued in 2006. A third album, Popular, was shelved. Hunt subsequently assembled Use in Case of Emergency, consisting of material from his vault of unfinished exit strategies, and provided it as a download for his followers in 2009. In 2011, through his own label, godless-hotspot, Hunt issued the restless What Were You Hoping For?. Crowd-sourcing facilitated The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets. *Popular was officially released in August, 2017.
