With a career spanning 17 years and almost 20 albums, Hunter consistently ups his game as an innovative writer and bandleader. He has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, D’Angelo and countless others. He is widely considered the authority on the seven and eight - string guitar, and continues to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms. Hunter has previously recorded for the venerable Blue Note label, Concord, Ropeadope and others. His recent independent venture is steered by his motivation to release music that most inspires him. Critics have touted his genius technique, but it's his profound artistic sensibility that propels his original music. Hunter's signature style of writing and performing has secured his place as one of today's great guitarists.

Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched In The Mouth, the title of which refers to a quote once uttered by heavyweight boxing champion Iron Mike Tyson, is Hunter's latest release. Recorded 100% live in a studio in Hudson, New York, Charlie Hunter returned to his quartet to perform 10 all-new Blues, Rock, Jazz and Latin-flavored songs alongside bandmates Kirk Knuffke (cornet), Bobby Previte (drums), and Curtis Fowlkes (trombone). Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched In The Mouth was released July 22, 2016 on GroundUP Music.
