Senie Hunt is a self-taught, singer-songwriter and percussive guitarist adopted from Sierra Leone. Upon coming to the United States, he brought with him an inherent passion for West African rhythms and percussion. Senie used djembe drumming as a creative outlet to process the traumas of his early childhood during Sierra Leone’s Diamond wars. After being introduced to the guitar by his father in America, Senie started to experiment with combining traditional guitar styles with a percussive groove capturing his West African roots. He learned most of what he knows through watching live footage of his early influencers like Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, and The Allman Brothers, as well as later influences like Michael Hedges, Tommy Emmanuel, and Andy McKee.

His mesmerizing approach and style, combined with his live looping, make for a performance that is eclectic, powerful and artfully unique. Senie composes continuously and has a large body of work for one so young. In 2020, he received the Innovators award at the Granite State of Mind Music Awards for his guitar mastery, and unique compositions. His spotlight includes opening for artists such as Richard Thompson, The Levin Brothers, Brooks Young, Daby Touré and Robert Randolph. Senie released his studio EP ‘Song Bird' in 2019 and a Christmas EP ‘Winter Meadow’ in 2020.
