Touting an impressive resume of bands she's backed over the years, Phoebe Hunt's vocal and fiddle talents are primed and ready for their turn out front. Her jazz and bluegrass roots combine elegantly with Texas gypsy elements on the new Phoebe Hunt and The Gatherers release Shanti's Shadow.
Phoebe splits her time between her native Austin, and Brooklyn, New York, where she's surrounded herself with an accomplished band which includes her mandolin-wielding husband Dominick Leslie. Notably Texan pulled Hunt away from a band rehearsal in Brooklyn to chat about her music history, her life in New York, the Texas-based non-profits she formed, and plenty more.
