RIYL: Andrew McMahon, Ben Folds, Max Bemis, Fun.
My name is Hunter deBlanc. I've been an avid AbsolutePunk follower and support for over a decade now, (even back when there was an mIRC channel-- and # meant channel and not hashtag), and I have also released by first EP of original music-- which certainly would not exist if it weren't for your contribution to the music world over the past several years.
I have been playing piano for a living for the past 7 years, playing covers "piano-bar" style in every venue in a 100 mile radius from my town. Now that I've finally finished college, I have finally had some time to work on some compositions and focus on songwriting.
My 5 song EP was recorded over the past year, between the summer of 2013 and 2014, and was heavily influenced by the music of Andrew McMahon (Something Corporate / Jack's Mannequin), as well as artists like Ben Folds, Say Anything, Fun, Brand New, Third Eye Blind, and many others that have thrived on in the world of AbsolutePunk.
The EP is titled "Something To Hold On To".
It is currently available on iTunes, Spotify, Rhapsody, Google, Amazon, Sony, and many other places.
