Luke, J.J., Ty, Brock and Dusty — a.k.a. The Hunter Brothers — are the epitome of Canadiana country. The five brothers from Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, grew up singing gospel with their family across Canada and the U.S., working on the family farm and playing hockey for the likes of the Kelowna Rockets to Edmonton Oilers.
After taking a timeout from their various professions — and on a break from seeding — the brothers found themselves drawn to the singing that united them in their childhood. Having each played instruments, including piano and guitar, since pre-kindergarten, the boys brought their exceptional talents together and for the first time began to turn their hands to country music.
The Hunter Brothers’ first single, “El Dorado,” was created with the stellar production skills of Brad Rempel (High Valley), Grammy award-winning producer Seth Mosley and Michael “X” O’Connor. Their follow up single, “Long Way to Love You,” an upbeat track about long distance love, was a Top-40 radio hit late last year.
Since their explosive launch, the brothers have been performing live acoustic sets on radio stations and television spots, sharing their versatile harmonies and soulful sound across the country. They’ve also become known for their unparalleled ability to create song parody videos – with their most recent attempt, “The Tractor Got Stuck” gaining more than 1.5 million organic views on Facebook.
