Hi, how are you?
Hey, I’m great thank you

So, when did you decide to make music your career?
I’ve always been into music and singing but I guess aruond 16 I picked up a guitar and started writing.

How did you come up with the name Huntar?
It was after watching Deerhunter, I googled to see if there was a hunter and a Swedish heavy metal band came up so in my head changing it to A made it look a bit cooler and be a little different

What is your source of inspiration when making music?
My life, always trying to channel what’s going on in my life. Makes it easy to be honest and relate too.

Outside music do you have a hobby that you like to escape to?
I’m a big football fan, playing and watching

Describe yourself in one word.
Passionate

Describe your music in one word.
Progressing

If you could collaborate with any artist ever dead or alive who would it be and why?
Prince, my all time favourite artist.

Do you have a favourite song/track you have made?
They’re always changing as I have written about 450 now but I’d probably say Blindspot or a new song called Be My Girl

Do you have an accomplishment you are most proud of?
I think having my song Anyway on FIFA 17 was a big moment for me.

How long does it take you to make a song?
Every song is completely different, some 20 minutes and 1/2 versions some take months and 20/30 versions.

If you could give any advice to any aspiring musicians out there what would it be?
Be patient, be humble, be passionate, be patient again.
