Johnny Hunter

Named by Jazzwise as an "artist to watch", Johnny Hunter is a Manchester-based drummer, composer and bandleader. He performs his own music across the UK most notably with the Johnny Hunter Quartet, having been recorded and broadcast by BBC Radio 3, and appearing at such esteemed venues as Ronnie Scott’s, the Manchester Jazz Festival, Birmingham Jazzlines at Symphony Hall, and Liverpool International Jazz Festival, among many others. He also regularly tours across Europe as part of the UK-Swiss collaboration, MoonMot.

His compositional focus is in developing techniques for composing for improvisers; to make the most of their skills in interpreting the music whilst retaining a strong compositional identity. To develop these ideas, he formed the piano trio, Fragments, with their 2019 album described as an “imaginatively detailed and uncompromising diary of a virtuosic improv group” (John Fordham, Jazzwise).
