  • Van Hunt

     

    I've been listenin to a lot of Van Hunt's music lately. Dude is real good. Real different too. I've also been wonderin what you would classify him as (as far as what category of music he would fall under). I've ruled out neosoul...and he DEF isn't your typical R&B anything. So then what is he? I know some artists don't like to be put into categories (e.g Erykah Badu), but I can't help it. I've been rackin mah brain all week. What do yall think?

    LOL I would classify his music as wack! Check previous thread about him, maybe you can get an idea of category to put his music in.

    Edit: Just checked and that thread on him is no longer around. It went maybe 2 pages. For the most part, most folks weren't feeling him, but there were some who were. Im sure they will come out to give Van Hunt some love on your thread

    i like the brother's sound, too. i had to break my habit of trying to classifying an artist-it can pigeonhole the artist and set you up to expect only a certain sound from an artist. but when they try something different, many people are not as open to the new stuff bc they were expecting neo-soul or whateva previous classification given. i just call it music and let that be enough.

    he sound is very similar to marvin gaye in the 60's or curtis mayfield, but it has his own spin on it... he reminds of chico debarge w/ the voice

    I remember when i first heard Van Hunt, he was on some ole backwood radio station playing the songs off of his record with a guitar singing it all LIVE!!!! Especially down in hell with you or whatever the name of that song was..I was so moved... Okay then I heard the recorded version and I was not feeling VAN HUNT.

    I guess people would call him neo soul

    I can Def see how folks might not like Van Hunt. He's too DIFFERENT for alot of ppl. But I Think his music is great. But you gotta love "Hold my hand", "Who will love me in winter", "Precious", and "What can I say". Those songs are hot. As far as looks....He's sorta cute. emphasis on sorta.

    You know....I hate having to 'classify' music for people.

    "who does he sound like"
    and then you give an answer...and when the music doesn't sound like that...they're turned off. Or just completely disregard it completely. Without listening to the music on its own and judging from there.

    I just don't think Van Hunt can be wrapped up tidily in to some musical box. Which is a definitely a good thing for him.

    I would classify his music as being a type of soul rock (if there is such a thing, LOL.). I've seen him twice here in TN. I was able to get his autograph and was pleasantly surprised at how down to earth he was. Just a really nice guy. I think he's a very gifted writer. I love all the songs off his cd, which is highly unsual for me.

    I'd classify Van Hunt's music as a very talented artist and a bit of a dish.
