Hunter Hunted is comprised of Michael Garner and Dan Chang from Danville, California who make songs that tread an easy path between head and heart. They just released their first full length album this week and are poised to become a force in the music industry. Formerly known as Lady Danville, Hunter Hunted changed their name and released their much-lauded debut EP, Hunter Hunted, in 2013. Dan and Michael went to UCLA and were in an acapella group where they joined together to begin their musical journey. They have toured alongside FUN., Fitz and The Tantrums, Weezer, Twenty One Pilots, and are currently on tour with Young Rising Suns. They perform at Harlows in Sacramento on Thursday, July 16.
Jason French was signed to his first major record label at the age of 22, but was dropped before he could release his album. He was dead broke and decided to dedicate all of his free time to songwriting while working a side job in construction. Now 26, Jason French teamed up with Theo Katzman and co-wrote a song that would land him back in the spotlight and score him a new record deal with Interscope. His full-length debut is out later this summer but you can groove to his summertime hit “You Just Want My Money” now.
