James Hunter (born 2 October 1962, Colchester, Essex) is an English R&B musician and soul singer.

He spent much of the 1990s playing small clubs in London, such as the Weavers Pub in Islington (North London), and the 100 Club on Oxford Street in London.

Hunter, however, is the genuine article, a gritty singer whose delivery harks back not so much to the airbrushed Sam Cooke but to the star's earlier and more abrasive gospel incarnation. With a crisp and precise band snapping at his heels, he turns on the blues energy on numbers that would have sounded perfectly at home on a 1960s jukebox.

Sure, James Hunter’s music is an intentional throwback to a different era, but he picked a great one: that heady time when Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson crooned satin-smooth soul over cool jazz/blues arrangements; when a guy could sing simple lyrics and lay on pizzicato strings without a whit of irony. What a wonderful world this could be-especially if you sex up the suave delivery with a stuttering, lo-fi guitar break or James Brown growl.
James Hunter is one of those overnight sensations who’s actually been out there playing for over twenty years, beginning with a long stand in the . as Howlin’ Wilf and the Vee-Jays.
