There are times when words aren’t even necessary to describe the elegance and grace of something that finds its way in front of you. This is one such occasion. I was looking for something beautiful, something to break through the grey and dim of my world. Lo and behold, Van Hunt manages to crawl into the dark spaces inside me and bring about the most incredible light I’ve ever felt.
His performance for WBEZ 91.5’s Sound Opinions is a revelation, a simple performance and space that is drastically transformed into something ferocious and beautiful. Really, there’s not much I can say that would do this session justice. Just allow the smooth caramel of this man’s voice to spread it’s spicy sweetness into your body and hold you.
