The Hunts

The Hunts are an indie-alternative-folk band comprised of seven brothers and sisters who just happen to have been homeschooled.

Born and raised in the south lands of Chesapeake, Virginia, the siblings grew up in a musical home and fell in love with composing their own music.

The band members include: Josh (guitar, lead vocals), Jenni (violin, lead vocals), Jonathan (keys, vocals), Jordan (drums, vocals), Justin (bass, vocals), Jamison (mandolin, vocals) and Jessi (viola, banjo, vocals).

They pour their blood, sweat and tears  into every song and strive to write music that moves hearts with beauty, power and joy. | @thehuntsmusic
