Hunt Sidway inherited his love of music from his father, who enjoyed a long and successful career in New York City singing lead bass/baritone in opera, Broadway and off-Broadway productions. After writing and performing his songs throughout college, Hunt emerged in the 1990s as a regular on the Louisville music scene, developing a following through his live shows and debut CD. For his sophomore disc, BALANCE, Hunt assembled a production team and cast of like-minded musicians whose influences complement his own, melding a wide variety of rock, acoustic and pop styles ranging from U2 to Dan Fogelberg, and from Steely Dan to Jackson Browne. The strong arrangements, filled with lyrical and melodic hooks, entertain while still delivering a pertinent message. Hunt is a 2004 Midpoint Music Fest Showcase Artist, and has showcased also at MEIC, 2NMC, and a 2004 LMIA/Budweiser Showcase in Louisville. Now based in Cincinnati, Hunt plans to tour in support of his new CD with shows in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, followed by regional tour dates throughout 2005.
