Phillip Hunter


Piano, Upright bass.


My name is Phillip Hunter. I'm a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles. I've been singing professionally for over 30 years. Recently I've returned to L.A. after living and working in Tokyo as a freelance artist for nearly 10 years. I'm currently looking for an experienced jazz pianist and bassist for a vocal trio group. We will perform high-end jazz, classic pop, mellow
r&b, and a few blues tunes. I'm looking for players who are familiar with jazz standards and classic pop, read well, improvise (soloing chops), and have no problem playing in different keys and genres. Must also have a passport and be able to travel.
After the unit has been formed we will shoot a video which will allow me to 'shop' the band. I will never turn down a decent paying "agency gig", but my immediate goal is to deal directly with the client (not agencies) so that we not only build a "base" but we are also properly compensated. If you're interested please contact me as soon as possible.
Also, I can send video links so that you can check me out.
