The Dear Hunter

The Dear Hunter started as a solo side project by singer and keyboardist Casey Crescenzo, formerly a key member of Boston emo act the Receiving End of Sirens. An outlet for Crescenzo's songs that didn't fit the Receiving End of Sirens' heavy post-hardcore vibe, the Dear Hunter was initially envisioned as a concurrent project. Indeed, Crescenzo's first gig as the Dear Hunter was an opening slot for the Receiving End of Sirens, at which he was backed by the other members of the band. Shortly afterward, however, Crescenzo decided to leave the Receiving End of Sirens and focus full-time on the Dear Hunter. Following a self-released EP taster called Dear Ms. Leading, Crescenzo wrote and recorded the full-length concept album Act I: The Lake South, The River North. The story of a young boy's birth, adolescence, and death, the album matches the exceedingly sensitive lyrics with prog-influenced chamber pop arrangements played almost entirely by Crescenzo, with a few family members and friends helping out on drums, keyboards, trumpet, and harmony vocals. For touring purposes, Crescenzo -- now calling himself Casey Blue in the band's official bio -- put together a full-band version of the Dear Hunter with guitarist Erick Serna, additional keyboardist Luke Dent, and drummer Sam Dent. The lineup was used to record an even more dynamic and symphonic second album in 2007, titled Act II: The Meaning Of, And All Things Regarding Ms. Leading. The band released the third installment of the series, Act III: Life and Death, in 2009 before breaking from that storyline to work on a new concept. Based on the colors of the spectrum, the concept was realized as a series of nine EPs that were eventually collected into one volume in 2011 with the release The Color Spectrum. Taking a break from the sprawling concept of the Act albums, Crescenzo returned in 2013 with the more traditional album Migrant. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

One might describe this style music as Boston creme.
The band has changed over the past few years sometime around 2010. Casey is still the focal point but the band members now include Nick Crescenzo on drums, (Caseys brother), Robert Parr (Guitar, keys and backup vocal), Connor Doyle (Guitar), Nick Sollecito (Bass) and Max Tousseau (Keyboards, Guitar, backup vocals). They are still in my mind one of the best bands out there today. Casey is a genius and I'm really shocked that this great group hasn't hit the big time. Totally agree with Joe Jarvis.
1545752686
Very well said, Mr. Jarvis, I agree completely with your well written and thought out statement.
Migrant speaks to me on another level: only after being with the last person you ever planned on being with, sharing the deepest roots of your souls, and having the relationship slip through your fingers do you understand the gravity of Casey's incredible ability to emote through music and word with this piece...and it's my least favorite Dear Hunter album. This band is truly fantastic in every way. Conceptualiz e d compositions with attention to detail is a rare art.
So glad I found these guys. I fell in love with Migrant but all their songs are amazing
This is pure artistry, music still free from big label commercialis m . It's a shame he'll never get rich or famous from this music, but it's some of the best I ever heard. His music isn't just something to hear and get stuck in your head, it's something to listen to intently - each song tells an emotional story. Props to Casey for 7 years of great, non-commerci a l i z e d content.

Casey Crescenzo is by far one of the nicest people I've met. Saw him with RAGC and he was one of the best shows for the night.
This is my favorite band. I love listening to the music so much that I unintentiona l l y learned the lyrics to almost all the songs from the acts and the color spectrum. THE MUSIC IS JUST THAT GOOD.
Ah, this station always has a great variety :)
metalvsjosh
Casey and nick are my personal friends and there music is and always has been amazing

I was watching Attack of the Show one night and The Dear Hunter had performed on the show and after i heard Casey sing i was amazed. Such talent.
Casey Crescenzo is an amazingly talented musician. His solo work is just incredible. @csullivan10 7 I had never heard the Dear Hunter until it came on one of my Pandora stations. Then I went out and bought Act I, II, & III. There's no problem with discovering a band on Pandora, but I agree if you like it, you have to get them all and listen straight through. I laid back and listened to it all in a row. Awestruck. I appreciated it so much more. I've gotten many of my friends into TDH too now.
agreed sullivan. preferably on dxm.
csullivan107
I really hope no one is using Pandora to discover TDH. You must get the albums and listen to them straight. preferably In isolation with your full attention.
Love the Dear Hunter. I've seen them live a whole bunch of times and can't get enough of them. They remind me of this band from Jersey called The Poor Player. I can't find them on here though :/
Using music to tell a story, what it was originally intended for. I find this return to the roots both refreshing/i n n o v a t i v e and traditional.

Definitely an amazing band. The singer reminds me also of the singer for These City Limits, check them out if you haven't.
Just watched these guys kill at the Cabooze in Minneapolis. I was at the show to see Manchester Orchestra and never heard of the opening acts before Saturday night.

THIS BAND IS AMAZING!!!! EVEN BETTER LIVE!!!!

It actually reminded me of the first time I saw Manchester Orchestra open up for Brand New.... No idea who they were, now they are my favorite band.

It was an true delight to see the band live and I cannot wait to explore more of The Dear Hunters music. The full concept ep of
check out The Color Spectrum, everyone. incredible stuff.
Probably one of my favorite bands ever. I love the music and lyrics so much! Freakymonkey ' s post is so true. Pandora, get ACT 3! People are missing out! ACT 2 is a panty-droppe r LOL, every album really is a great work of art and Casey continues to inspire and surprise.
implicitly_m e
Act 1 definitely my favorite.
I can't wait for Act IV!! Act II had to be my favorite album.. it's over an hour long!!! Make me think.. it all The Beatles were alive and still writing together today, I think they would sound something like The Dear Hunter :)
lmy_world.my _ w a y l
I love Act III, especially since that's how I found them, but I haven't gotten the chance to listen to Act I, so I would love to see Act I and Act II on Pandora as well!

Another Vote for Act 1 and Act 3.
ACT1 ! , ACT3 ! get on it
two other albums!! Please add them!
By far the single most frantic, articulate, virtuosic, imaginative, ambient, crushing, literarily masterful, unrelenting, heartlessly soulful, morbidly beautiful, and auditorily-p i c t u r e s q u e Artists contributing to the ether today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
i love how eclectic th songs are! suits my taste lol
Act III is absolutely fantastic. Every album is a perfect response to the previous one. I am so glad that I was able to see them in St. Louis! They're great guys.
I LOVE this band. They sound fantastic, and i love their use of voices- for example the first song in Act 1. it works really well with their music!
toxico803
What about The Dear Hunters other albums?? One cannot properly enjoy The Dear Hunter with only one album to listen to.
They sound so much like Coheed.
NOTHING like the Used.
just saw them in concert & chilled wit them b4 & after that concert. in pittsburgh they r really good & really down to earth ppl
I just discovered them and they are amazing... they do sound a little like the Used though.
What that guy said under me. These guys are real artists. The music played by this band is full of color.
This is by far one of the best and most eclectic albums I have ever heard. I wish there was more music like this. Being a fan of TREOS I was initially skeptical but Casey definitely made the right decision. These guys are one of my favorites.
these guys are amazing. PUT THE FIRST ALBUM ON HERE!!!
dondee1016
this band is amazing live and they have some pretty good perosonaliti e s on stage as well! i love them! As for the bands different direction i think its a good thing to do what u want even if no one wants to join you. Im glad he did it because im even a bigger fan.
anna0515mx_3 3 5

Where is act 1? That makes me a sad panda:(
Well I know it was not Entirely his desicion, it seems like he was just headed in a different direction with his music than his band mates wanted to go. I have seem TREOS live two times and Casey was def my favorite part of that band. Now i am just SOOOO happy all that mess happend, becuase we all got blessed with these amazing works of art. Absolutely amazing.
kind of amazing! seriously. there is nothing about The Dear Hunter i dislike.
Yeah this band is awesome. I cant wait for act 3...seriousl y listen to this band.
God I love these guys, TREOS are so good and i didnt even know that this guy was from TREOS, but man The Deer Hunter are so good and creative, I just can't get enough of their stuff, Im addicted, Pandora, please put their first Album, Act I: The Lake Sout, The River North.
PLEASE!
As far as I know, it wasn't entirely his choice to leave TREOS...
