The Hunter Rea Band is a collective group of high-spirited, energetic musicians out of Belton, Texas. The band made some big waves this summer; winning the Luling Watermelon Thump Battle of the Bands this year, and after lighting it up while kicking things off for William Clark Green and Jason Boland, we were anxious to hear what their new music had in store.
Now that the wait is over, we’re excited to share with you their new single “Memories”. A lot of times, bands who have a dynamic live sound, have a hard time capturing that electricity in the studio, and it often comes out flat; after hitting the play button below, you’ll find out that’s certainly not the case here!
Their vibrant sound pours through the track with bluesy vocals, full harmonies, and smoky guitar licks! Primarily written by the group’s bass player, John Allen, lead singer, Hunter Glaske, came across the pad Allen had written the lyrics down on in their music room and quickly found out that the whole band identified with the tune. Detailing the heartache and growing pains of a relationship Allen was in, the band felt it was a song a lot of people could relate to, and with the help of Glaske, and drummer Adam Rea, the song was finished, and brought to life by Pat Manske.
It’s the first taste fans get of their upcoming album “Never Too Late”, expected to drop in February 2017 and has us eagerly anticipating the rest of the tunes. “Our album title, paints a beautiful picture for all of us” Glaske told us. “It’s never too late to chase your dream, create something out of nothing or even impact someone’s life. That’s the reality we want to present to people. If you believe in who you are and what you’re doing, it’s never too late to do anything. We were a bunch of friends from college that could hardly play instruments. Instead of saying, it’s too late to learn how to play, we just played and learned how along the way. That’s the best part! “
We say “cheers” to that , and encourage you to turn the volume up, hit the play button below, and jam your way through the day!
