Missouri rockers Shaman’s Harvest have been on the scene since 1996 but it wasn’t until 2009 with the release of their album “Shine” and the hit single “Dragonfly” that they began to really make a splash.  Since then the band has gone through a few personnel changes, recorded songs for the WWE, and released 2014’s “Smokin’ Hearts & Broken Guns” album.  In addition to that, lead vocalist Nate Hunt was diagnosed with a rare form of throat cancer and has thankfully undergone successful treatments. Now the band is about to release a brand new record “Red Hands Black Deeds” and is in the midst of a summer tour which has them headlining clubs as well as providing support on the Nickelback tour.  This talented band possesses a uniquely raw and organic sound that is a welcome change in today’s rock scene.  BackstageAxxess had the opportunity to check in with Nate and find out all the latest details on the new album and tour as well as an update on his health.  Please join us for a conversation with Shaman’s Harvest frontman, Nate Hunt.


We would like to thank Steve Karas of SKH Muisc for setting up the interview with Nate. For more information on Nate and Shaman’s Harvest including the new CD “Red Hands Black Deeds,” please go to:  Shaman’s Harvest.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978.
My top five live shows ever are:

1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome.

2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours.
3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 – The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked!
4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live.
5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
