Biography

It’s been a long road for Los Angeles acoustic rock band Huntingfield, but they finally have an end in sight. Despite a somewhat tumultuous beginning, marked by long bus rides and several different recording sessions, they have come to the point of wrapping up their full-length debut record. Produced by LA local, Teppei Teranishi (Thrice), the album will be independently released on June 9th.

“This record has been three years in the making,” says bass player Michael MacGregor. “We finally feel like we have a product we’re proud of.”

The band initially formed three years ago, under the name of Northern, and consisted of Jeff Perez, Michael MacGregor and three other members. Now, Huntingfield is made up of Perez as lead vocals, MacGregor on bass, and Jon Carter on piano and lead guitar.

Though this record has been a long time coming, the arduous road to Huntingfield can be traced back to Perez’s decision to fully pursue his passion for music. Despite the wishes of his parents, Perez dropped out of college in 2006 and devoted all of his time to playing and creating music. His career set foot slowly, though, with shows at local coffee shops and other small venues in Perez’s hometown of Bakersfield, California. He remembers haunting his favorite venue, The Boiler Room, for groups he could open for.

“I saw an out of town band was coming through called Vela, so I listened to their songs on Myspace and thought they were great,” recalls Perez. “I called the promoter and asked if I could play a few songs that night.”
