Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Hunter (born 2 October 1962, Colchester, Essex) is a Grammy Award-nominated English R&B musician and soul singer. Hunter's career began with a band called, "Howlin' Wilf and the Vee-Jays," who released first album in 1986 titled, Cry Wilf. Later he released three more with his band. He spent much of the 1990s playing small clubs in London, as with the Weavers Pub in Islington (North London), and the 100 Club on Oxford Street in London. Hunter's soulful style garnered the attention of Van Morrison, who appeared on Hunter's first album released on Ace, Believe What I say in 1996. (Morrison sang backing vocals on "Turn On Your Love Light" and "Ain't Nothing You Can Do.") Hunter's relationship with Morrison led to a tour with Van in the early nineties where he sang backing vocals on Morrison's 1994 live album, A Night in San Francisco, and his 1995 studio recording Days Like This. Hunter's first solo release in the United States, his 2006 breakthrough album People Gonna Talk, was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album at the 49th Grammy Awards ceremony. He parted ways with Rounder Records in 2008 and issued the album The Hard Way via Hear Music/Concord.
