"If people have never heard of you, give them your music
and let them decide whether they like them or not. "
At first glance, Sam Hunt like a typical young US singer act. He looks dazzling, is difficult ensnared by media and girls and virtuoso combines R'n'B appeal with Pop and beats. But on closer inspection it scales fall from the eyes: On Sam Hunt nothing is typical. Prior to his meteoric career, he was with one leg Senior quarterback with views of the NFL, his first own release was a mixtape and today he lands on average 850,000 global streams per day, performs at Jimmy Fallon's "The Tonight Show" and Taylor Swift Tweets "such a star". De facto is Sam Hunt one of the most successful US-Newcomer 2015 and his internationally acclaimed debut album is called "Montevallo".
Hunt is growing in rural Cedartown, Georgia, and focused during his school days in sports. He is master quarterback from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and his way into the professional league mere formality - because Smaller him a guitar in his hands and he falls for neck overhead in the songs of Townes Van Zandt and John Prine. He quickly begins to assemble chords and writing her own melodies and notes that his flirtation with the music has become a full-blown relationship. "It was funny because I did not know anyone else who Ball and simultaneously makes music," says Hunt. "It took me quite a while in order cope" with little idea of Musikzirkus but all the larger dream he hangs Football on the nail and goes to Nashville. after a few gigs in the city he gets a publishing contract and dedicated exclusively to writing songs.
While Sam Hunt is taken up in the songwriting community with open arms and fOr stars like Keith Urban Chart Hits delivers, he experimented increasingly with modern beats and combines them with narrative lyrics full of puns to a whole new style. Some of his songwriting colleagues are skeptical, but when Kenny Chesney receives "Come Over" (co-written by Hunt) and it is a No. 1 hit, feel Hunt that he is on to something. His focus shifted from songwriter solo artist and he meets Zach Crowell, the fOr the beats of Antioch rap crew responsible for. For hours they creep into Crowell studio and crafting tracks for his text ideas. When they have enough material, they borrow a concept from the rap world: 2013 appears a mixtape called "Between the Pines" with acoustic songs. "HipHop is terrific in making music accessible," he explains. "If people have never heard of you, give them making your music and let them decide for themselves whether they like them or not."
Even after signing with Universal / MCA Nashville's Hunt his way unwaveringly and supplies with his debut album "Montevallo" a highly exciting mix of sounds and styles. The very first German single "Take Your Time" fascinated with chanting and warm vocals in the verses and wonderful pop with aggressive beats in the chorus. No wonder that the song goes through the roof: The clip for "Take Your Time" was about 44 million times clicked far on Vevo, the single sold in the United States more than two million copies and with our neighbors in the Netherlands is the track without any promotional activities currently at # 4 on iTunes and in the top ten airplay charts. But the more melodic "Make You Miss Me", the explosive chorus of "Break Up in a Small Town" or "Raised On It", in which he writes about his youth in a small town and used images and over the clichéd Trucks sandy roads go, overwhelm with Hunts clearly audible credo. Contradictions should be accepted and rules are broken - for real creativity is limitless.
The title "Montevallo" refers to a place in Alabama, in the Hunt often retreats to visit friends and to escape the pressures of the music business. Equally important it is that the word in Spanish "hills and valleys" means - which, as he says, "feels quite correct about". "Montevallo" follows Hunts recently released album Preview "x2c", led by the gilded top 5 track "Leave the Night On" and with a week to FüNF million streams on Spotify alone he won the latest edition of "Emerge" - program for new artists, for already acts like Macklemore Ryan Lewis or Bastille were selected. When Hunt talks about his approach and objectives, it can not help but to use in his past: "You want to stand out, be unique," he says. "I'm trying to anticipate what the opponent is doing and then do it automatically different. Although this is a way of thinking from the sport, but they will also fit many other parts of life. "
