Hunter & Bear

Hunter and the Bear

Hunter & the Bear are a melody driven four piece who craft an intoxicating blend of muscular folk-rock, which hits listeners in the gut. The icing on the cake is moving manly, harmonies by Will Irvine, Jimmy Hunter, bassist Chris Clark and drummer Gareth Thompson.

Hunter & The Bear have supported many artists, most notably Eric Clapton on his 2014 UK Arena tour. 2015 saw the band complete a sold out headline Highlands & Islands tour followed by a UK headline tour ending in the legendary Dingwalls with a sold out a show. The band went straight into a busy summer including performances at Reading & Leeds and Larmer Tree amongst others. Following the release of their new EP ‘Wildfire’ in July 2015 the band headed out to America with packed out CMJ & Communion showcases.
