About

Donald Hunt

A jazz vocalist for the EDM generation, Donald Hunt has a knack for mashing his jazz-infused baritone with cutting-edge EDM beats. Hailing from West Philadelphia and a graduate of Berklee College of Music, Hunt is expressing the kind of music he has always envisioned but never heard otherwise. This music has led to #higherstandards, a singles project where Hunt premieres a new interpretation of a beloved jazz standard through collaborations with inventive EDM DJs and producers.

Classically trained on the voice and cello, Hunt has kept those expressive qualities close to his heart as a critical part of his artistic identity. When he fully transitioned to singing at Berklee, he was unsure of the musical direction he would head into as a vocalist. Ultimately, he was challenged by a voice teacher to learn a jazz standard and perform it for his vocal improvisation class. From that point, it was evident that this was the right path for Hunt, but on his own terms.

Hunt has collaborated with goldenSpiral on four standards, which will be released each month starting in January 2019 on all music platforms. These collaborations serve as a springboard for transporting these timeless songs onto a brand new framework for listeners to sink their teeth into.
