Emma Hunter

Singer-songwriter, 1950s-inspired guitarist, and loop-maker Emma Hunter, together with the trip-hop-inspired percussionist Tom Bruce, create complexly evocative soundscapes, filled with dramatic Lynchian atmosphere. 

Intricate melodies and rich Chanteuse-Esque harmonies lie at the heart of every darkly imaginative soundscape crafted to indulge the listener in sun-blistered cinematic escapism. 

Emma Hunter is an experienced singer and songwriter, with performances at the main stage of Truck Festival under her belt and extensive touring experience in her former bands. PJ Harvey, David Lynch OSTs, Imogen Heap, Ennio Morricone, Portishead, The Shangri-Las, the mysticism of Ancient Mexico and Catholic imagery coalesce in her collective of muses. Sharon Van Etten and Anna Calvi are her most prolific comparisons.

Tom Bruce is a highly-in-demand drummer who spent much of his youth playing percussion in orchestras; consequently, he plays in several bands in Oxfordshire that seek his Blur & Radiohead-inspired percussive flair. The two artists joined forces in March 2019. Since, they have played at The Oxford 02 Academy, The Bullingdon Arms, The Wheatsheaf and other venues across Oxford and London. They frequently feature on BBC Radio Oxford, Witney Radio and international online radio shows. They also had the honour of having their song ‘Window’ chosen as the number 1 song to be released in Oxfordshire in 2021 by Nightshift Magazine.
