In addition to performing throughout the U.S. and regularly in her Bay Area stomping grounds, Hunter has toured Europe supporting the German release of her titles. She relocated to Brooklyn in 98, and then returned home to San Francisco for the new millennium with a batch of songs that would be featured on her 2002 release Sun in Mind.
2002 also marked the convening of "Magic City Chamber of Commerce," a collaboration of six Bay Area singer-songwriter and country-music scene heavies. Their material ranges from the Roches and George Harrison to their own originals, and Hunter is pleased to be in the mix.
Her current desert-island-discs include the Essential Ella Fitzgerald, "Who's Next," Lisa Germano's "Slide", PJ Harveys Dry, Gillian Welchs Time (the Revelator), and anything from the Beatles. Of course, D.I.D.'s are always a work in progress, inclusion of Bob Dylan titles could take up a whole list, and chances of being stuck on an island are low...
