Van Hunt – What Were You Hoping For
Van Hunt cannot be categorized into a particular genre. The electric rock, soul, funk musician’s third album offering ‘What Were You Hoping For?’ is a continuation of his musical experimentation.

But I see a collision of those ideas and unresolved issues. My question is what could you have been hoping for when we make the kind of decisions in our society that we have made,” said Vant Hunt.
