Hunting Bears Short Info

Informed by everything from west coast melody to neo-soul rhythm; baroque strings to gospel harmony; Joni to Erykah; Hunting Bears have carved out an instantly recognisable sound which draws from their wide influences but is distinctly their own.

Hunting Bears have played: Green Man, Beatherder and High & Lonesome Festivals; opened The Brudenell Social Club stage at Live at Leeds; and across the country in renowned venues such as Square Chapel Halifax and Seven Arts Leeds. In recent years, they have played in support of Lanterns on the Lake, Paul Thomas Saunders and Ryley Walker.
