Freddie James is a Canadian dancer and musician whose particularity, apart from being an artist, is to be the son of Geraldine Hunt and also to be the brother of Rosalind Hunt (singer who will be found in the famous duo 'Chéri').
He will know his heyday in 1979 with his song "(Everybody) Get up and boogie)" and will also produce several singles of good quality during the 80s.
In this regard alone, we had to devote this article to him.

1979 ... a title, THIS title, was enough to bring the young singer One Shot into the musical legend of the 80s. In any case, in the Hunt family, the genes of musical success are predominant, force is to note. HU-GE !
1979 ... it is clear that he will never repeat the feat achieved on the previous title but what he will continue to offer largely holds up. We will largely be satisfied with it !
1980 ... well, he will still have to think about adapting to the new musical trends which are in the process of being imposed on a planetary level. Adaptation or disappearance, it's up to him ...
1981 ... well it will be adaptation and so much the better ! The sound sticks well to what the general public expects now and he can therefore continue to unfold quietly ...
1981 ... nothing exceptional but quite simply a good job. Like his mother and sister, they will all have produced one major title and several big-caliber titles alongside. What a family !
1981 ... he even allows himself to make a foray into the Intimist. And my gosh, the least we can say is that he is far from being ridiculous ...
1982 ... a sound and a style that go well and yet that will not pay more than that. He will have really missed a little nothing to do very big things ...
1992 ... he will disappear from radar for almost 10 years, at least as a singer. Here he is back in this new decade of the 90s and the least we can say is that he did not come back to do only figuration ...
1992 ... unfortunately, between wanting and being able, there can be an ocean. This is what the singer will learn at his expense. But the adventure was beautiful and this is especially what we will remember ...
