Popdose is pleased to bring you the newest video from Hunter Sharpe, an up-and-coming artist from Austin, Texas. Mr. Sharpe has been developing his musical prowess since he was old enough to pick up a guitar. Flourishing from the influence of contemporary alternative artists like Jack White and Arctic Monkeys, his ambitious exploration has culminated in the creation of an extraordinary rock sound.

At the age of 20, Mr. Sharpe has developed an uncanny ability for live performance, delivering an electrifying show every time he steps on stage along with his band (consisting of Marlon Sexton – son of Charlie Sexton – Colton Kincaid and Hunter Pierce).  They have made their way from Los Angeles’ El Rey Theater to the Austin City Limits Music Festival this past year and most recently, doing no less than ten different appearances during the SXSW festival in Mr. Sharpe’s hometown of Austin.

His debut E.P., Forced Landings is currently available; please check out the video for “Playing Fair”.
