Written by Miles Monroe II
The guitar riffs were the star of this song, Homestead, by Hunter Root. The audience (Myself included) fell into a state of transparency when the guitars hit within the first 15 seconds of the song. They had to have known that we would be automatically tuned in. No matter what type of music you listen to, you can’t deny that this sound is magnetic, something I would call funky (that’s a good thing). The instrumentation blended well with Hunter’s voice, which accented it more throughout the track. Knowing that he produces and writes his own music is a pretty spectacular feat, a trend that I would like to see gain a full head of steam.
He’s a talent that I expect to grow with every music release moving forward. Homestead, comes from the newly released album Mimicking the Sun like Dandelions, and is a song that you should anticipate as you listen to his album. Some of the lyrics are very descriptive, and give you a visual of the characters and their story.
Sick of nicotine feign and caffeine eyes
Take me to my homestead
When you can go on a journey with the artist on their song, that'll bring a fan base that appreciates the stories being told in Hunter’s music.
