Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I’m Seth Hunt and I sing and play guitar in Figure Eight.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Our music is heavily influenced by bands like Green Day, The Killers, The Who, etc which are just loud, energetic bands with big hooks and melody. But as a writer I try and write about true experiences and feelings that I have or have had and hope that someone out there can relate to it.
Doyou have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We have our final show this Saturday December 15 at the Royal Theatre in Gananoque Ontario. It is our first theatre show so we are all super excited! Our live performance is very high energy. We like to rock out the whole time we are on stage and give it our all, and if we are an opening band we like to try and get the crowd as hyped as possible and make new fans while doing so.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
It would probably be our song “Bonfire” just because it captures the energy and sound we all love.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands?
It’s a toss-up right now between The Beaches and The Glorious Sons. Both bands are incredible
