A gifted and highly original songwriter, singer, and guitarist, Adam Hunter draws from a deep well of inspiration in his music, combining folk, rock, funk, and jazz with Brazilian rhythms and moods to create a unique blend of sound. Born and raised in Seattle, Adam comes from a line of talented musicians. But for many years it seemed as if he future was as a long-distance runner - until an untimely injury put an end to that dream. Instead he went to live in Brazil, taking up the invitation of an exchange student he'd befriended, and the experience changed his life. During his two years there, he immersed himself in Brazilian culture and music. He traveled across the country, from the bristling, huge cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo to the rich jungle of the Amazon. Returning to Seattle, he began playing music avidly, gradually developing his distinctive vocal and songwriting style, drawing from the strands of his influences to create something different and completely fresh. The magic he weaves is evident on his debut CD, Unfolding Time, where samba and bossa nova, funk and jazz mingle with the berimbau, and the listener is transported to a place where the world is new.
