The band with a story – literally
The Dear Hunter is the main project of multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter Casey Crescenzo. From the beginning, it was a high-concept project: Casey mapped out multi-page treatments for a six-album story arc about the birth, life, and abrupt death of a boy, set at the dawn of the 20th century.
‘Act I: The Lake South, The River North’, ‘Act II: The Meaning of, and All Things Regarding Ms. Leading’ and the third installment, ‘Act III: Life and Death’ were released between 2006 and 2009. Crescenzo temporarily stepped away from the series to work on the critically acclaimed 2.5 hour, 9 EP, 36-track collection: The Color Spectrum, his latest studio album Migrant, and his own personal symphony Amour & Attrition.
The Dear Hunter has now officially returned to the story with the highly anticipated ‘Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise’, produced entirely by Crescenzo. The album features Bay Area musicians the Awesöme Orchestra on every song with orchestration written by Casey.
