If you listen to Hunter At Sunrise with any sort of regularity, you know we love to bring emerging artists on the show. So it is that this Sunday, we have the duo from Virginia Beach, Red Clover Ghost, in for a live acoustic session. Red Clover Ghost is an indie folk-rock duo formed in 2011, featuring identical twin brothers Clint & Gibb Cochrum.
According to their Facebook page, their "songs rely heavily on vocal harmonies underscored by acoustic instrumentation, with lyrical content exploring a mix of traditional folk and modern pop themes."
The duo is fresh off the release of their second cd, Ghost Town America, which means we should be in for a lively acoustic session this Sunday. Hope you will join us.

Their music is original, organic and acoustic. Hope you'll join us for a live acoustic session with Jackson LeBeau & Co. For more about the band., click HERE.
Hunter At Sunrise is celebrating the summer solstice this weekend and taking a Sunday off. Instead of a live show this Sunday morning, we will present an encore of our May 4th show featuring Robbin Thompson of Richmond. It was Robbin's birthday this past week and this seems like a good way to say happy birthday and thanks for all the great music. We will return to live shows on June 29th when Jackson LeBeau & Co. pay their first visit to Hunter At Sunrise. So I hope you will join us this weekend for the reprise of our show featuring Robbin Thompson. For more about Robbin, click HERE.
We're getting ready to take a little break from the show here in June but before we do, we have one more acoustic session for you. As you may know, on occasion we like to bring you new artists who are active in the area. Many are frequenting open mikes and selling their music in the form of EPs. So it is with Zach Chernitzer who will be paying a visit to Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday. According to his page on Soundcloud, Zach has been influenced by "G. Love, Jack Johnson, and Jeff Buckley, along with personal experiences, he has developed more of his own sound, which promotes positivity, love, happiness, and truth." I hope you will join us as Zach Chernitzer makes his first appearance on Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday morning. For more about Zach Chernitzer, click HERE.
