Check Out The Hunts!


I’ve been working for several days on a blog post. They aren’t normally this time-consuming, but this one is a bit complicated. But since I don’t want to go another day without a post, let me take a brief departure from the normal kind of stuff I do here.

Introducing the Hunts

The Hunts have been our dear friends for many years. They are a homeschooling family of nine who spend much of their time traveling around the country performing music. When they are home, they run music camps and teach music. They introduced my own daughters to two of their passions: Irish dance and violin. Most the kids (maybe all?) have been WriteAtHome students as well.

And they have just released a new album! Unlike most of their previous recordings, this one is all original material written by the kids. It’s in the indie-folk category and it’s genuinely good. A popular local rock station plays songs from it regularly. The album title is We Were Young (which I find funny because they are still young!).

What I’m saying is — you should buy it! It’s available for download on iTunes.

You can also order it from their website here.

Below are some of their YouTube videos. Hope you like them!

    Brian, I saw the post of them pulling the “We Were Young” album for a launch. That post was over a year ago and was wondering if you have heard anything else about the album. I have their other music, but would love to purchase that album.

      Yes, I do. They’ve been in the studio recording lots and lots of songs. Their label wants to have a large selection to choose from. But it seems that they’ve settled on the final songs and will be releasing an album this winter. I think they said sometime in February. I’ll definitely plug them here when the album finally gets released.

          Talked to them tonight. Looks like the label is pushing it back to March or April. :(

            You don’t know how much this news has relieved me. I desperately want that album and I too couldn’t find it anywhere. Do you know if they’ll be including all the songs from it in their new album or are those songs no longer going to be available? I do know that when they release their new album I’m going to buy it, it’d just be nice to be able to get most, if not all of the songs from We Were Young.

    I’ve trying to find where I can buy their record, but it’s no longer available on iTunes, amazon or their website. Do you know why or if it will become available again soon?

      Weird. No idea.

      Hi Erin, I talked to the Hunts today. Apparently, their new record label has pulled the album temporarily because they want to make a big deal launch. So, hang tight. It will be available again soon. :)

      No problem. Just give WriteAtHome some props for helping you guys develop your song writing skills! :)

    They’re very talented — my favorite is their version of ‘Hallelujah.’ What an interesting life, to travel around with your family…I imagine those siblings have to build pretty strong friendships with one another too!
