Phoebe Hunt & The Gatherers On Tour Now - New Album Shanti's Shadow Embraced By Rolling Stone, Relix, NPR Music

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Austin, Texas songwriter and instrumentalist Phoebe Hunt and her virtuosic acoustic band The Gatherers are currently on tour in support of their new album Shanti's Shadow. This summer, they'll perform at festivals and music halls across the country, and tape a live episode of the eTown radio show along with Americana artist John Moreland.

Hunt makes an impressive leap with Shanti's Shadow, released June 2 on Popped Corn Records. It's the culmination of a five year journey that has taken her from her Austin roots through Music Row, Brooklyn and even to India to study with seventh-generation master violinist Kala Ramnath. Along the way, Phoebe found her voice and delivered her most inspired set of songs to date - the soundtrack to her self-discovery.

Rolling Stone Country named Hunt one of their Top 10 "New Country Artists You Need To Know." Shanti's Shadow's "title hints at the otherworldly music within," they write, "with Hunt merging her Appalachian-style fiddle chops with Texas twang, Indian ragas, gypsy jazz, unfamiliar time signatures and the free-spirited fun of a jam band leader. The resulting record breathes new life into a genre that's sometimes so respectful of the past, it fails to push toward the future."

Folk Alley debuted the album's lead single "Lint Head Gal," a stomping country blues song about a hard working, independent woman. The song was added to NPR Music's "Heavy Rotation: 10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing" and embraced by World Cafe. Relix premiered the video for "Pink and Blue," which highlights her virtuosic band The Gatherers, and Austin Chronicle premiered the video for "Just For Tonight."
