Growing up, Hunter’s father ran a small recording studio out of their Port Chester apartment and worked with Queen Latifah. He was born into music and began playing instruments at the early age of 9. First, he taught himself saxophone and also learned to play the bass, guitar and piano on his own. Most recently, Hunter played bass for the now bygone band, Run On The Sun. The band has been featured on and performed in a number of festivals and gigs, most notably performed live on Sirius XM show, Howard 101. The band grabbed the attention and support of music mogul, Harvey Leeds, before their split in 2012. The breakup of that band was the driving inspiration for Zeke Hunter’s solo career.
