Recording artist, Charlie Hunter is not only a singular guitarist, but he’s also a creative whose style and expression
continue to advance with each project he immerses himself into. Proof positive is Hunter’s new album—and 18th as a leader—whimsically titled Everyone Has a Plan Until They Get Punched in the Mouth.  It was released on Snarky Puppy’s label, GroundUP Music, and distributed by Universal Music Classics in 2016.

The superlative ten-tune collection of songs—all originals except for one cover—is steeped in the blues and r&b. Hunter has enlisted a stellar support team of trombonist Curtis Fowlkes, cornetist Kirk Knuffke and drummer Bobby Previte who play live in the studio for optimum effect. At turns Hunter’s new music takes on a noir feel, lopes in a fluid slow flow, charges upbeat with a groove and horn interchange, twirls into a playful party mode, moves into a gentle lyricism—all soaked in a blues sensibility and tone.

Hunter graduated from Berkeley High School and took lessons from guitar teacher Joe Satriani. At eighteen he moved to Paris. Hunter says that it was his experience busking on the streets of Paris that provided him with "on the job training" because he busked for 8 to 12 hours a day to make ends meet. Returning to the Bay area, Hunter played a seven-string guitar and organ in Michael Franti's political rap group, The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy.  Since 1993, Charlie Hunters mindboggling guitar technique has garnered him fans around the world, critical acclaim and recordings with some of the most prestigious names in jazz and pop
