Hunter Smith, a 5th generation Floridian, has had a life steeped in musical history. Music was always on & he was listening. In his early years, artists such as James Taylor, The Beatles, Alabama, Chicago & Ronnie Millsap were from where he drew his influence. As he got older, his playlist ranged from Pearl Jam & Alice In Chains to George, Garth, B&D, Waylon & Hank. As his love for music grew, so did his love for songwriting. Hunter bridges his love for country, singer-songwriter & rock genres with an original style that incorporates all three. He has shared the stage with many of Country's notables, including Chris Young, Dierks Bentley, Michael Ray, Sara Evans, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lonestar, & Joe Nichols, as well as some of Rock's top artists like Sheryl Crow, Creed & Switchfoot. You can find him playing live solo shows as well as with his band Jill's Cashbox.
