Yaahn Hunter Jr’s passion for music began at the age of three when he used to beat on pots and pans with two wooden spoons. Yaahn began playing the drums at his father’s church, New Faith Cathedral, Church of God In Christ (C.O.G.I.C.) at the age of eight where he is now the Musicians Director from the keyboard. Yaahn began playing the organ, piano and keyboard at the age of 14.
Yaahn’s father, Dr. Yaahn Hunter Sr. introduced him to recording in the studio. Yaahn Jr began producing music, “beats” at the age of 12 years old using a Roland D-20 and Ensoniq synthesizers, and Roland Doctor Rhythm 880 drum machine. He has now composed over 100 beats under his production tittle, Yhuntermusic Productions.
In 2007 Yaahn Hunter Jr. received a $12,000.00 scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in 2008. At Berklee, he learned music theory and musical engineering techniques, which has propelled his musicianship and production over the years. In 2012, Yaahn graduated with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Production and Engineering.
Over the years, Yaahn has had the opportunity to play for gospel icons and new artists such as: Dorinda Clark-Cole, Karen Clark-Sheard, Twinkie Clark (All Grammy Award Winning Gospel Artists), Timothy Wright, Kim Burrell, Judith McAllister, Beverly Crawford, Norman Hutchins, Byron Cage, Marvin Sapp, David Daughtry, Tasha Page-Lockhart and many more.
