Sam Vicary A.K.A Hunrosa (meaning “to dream”) is an electronic music producer capturing the wild organic senses of his childhood and anchoring it with a darker 2am undercurrent. Based in Manchester, he is principally a bassist and currently a member of The Cinematic Orchestra, Paper Tiger and The Dominic J Marshall Trio as well as performing with Manu Delago, Imogen Heap, Matthew Halsall, Anil Sebastian and Stuart Macallum.
Hunrosa is a creation drawing on a multitude of influences; marrying heavy bass, lush strings and soaring vocals. The music is inspired by a coastal upbringing, represented in the music via field recordings, as well as being aided by visual stimulus throughout the writing process.
The music plays on the juxtaposition of modern electronic music and the beauty of acoustic instruments whilst maintaining a focus on songwriting and pure music. There features homages to ambient/electronic producers, late 60’s psychedelic jazz artists and romantic classical music.
The live band features Vicary on bass, Sam Gardner on drums, Liviu Gheorge on keys and Alice Higgins on vocals; all members contributing various live electronic performance.
