For more than 50 years, the mythical Hammond Organ sound has brought a unique soul to music of all kinds, apparently impervious to style and genre barriers, and always adding a soulful touch of magic. Inspired by its peculiar timbre and wide-reaching soundscape, Highway Hunters strives to bring the Hammond Organ back to the forefront, and usher it into a new age of modern vintage rock’n’roll goodness.
The Montreal band takes these screaming organ riffs, and adds pounding drums and a thundering bass section to the mix, for an unmistakable signature sound. Highway Hunters redefines the rock power trio, featuring Marine, keyboardist for Uncle Kracker and Corey Hart; Yanni, guitarist, bassist, writer and musical director for Claude Dubois and several artists in the Greater Montreal area; and Simon, session drummer and former member of the world-touring band Impact.
Highway Hunters is currently working on its first studio album while touring across Canada and the United States.
The band proudly endorses Hammond Organ, Gator Cases, JH Audio, Conquest Cables, Trekii Products and Tonewheel General Hospital.
Hailing from Montreal, Marine is the keyboardist for Uncle Kracker, Corey Hart and lead singer/keyboardist of Highway Hunters. Drawing in from her passion for rock, blues and country, Marine brings with her a unique musical touch, a mesmerizing and contagious presence, and the highest level of professionalism. From soaring melodies and pleasant ballads to powerful rocking riffs, she takes every performance to the next level.
Whether it’s behind a Hammond Organ, a grand piano, a Rhodes, a synthesizer, or even a keytar, she stops at nothing to bring every song to life and light the audience ablaze.
In addition to being an active member of the Uncle Kracker team, she has also shared the stage with several artists such as Kid Rock, Sugar Ray, Steve Harwell (SmashMouth), Better then Ezra, Eve 6, Bret Michaels and Pitbull just to name a few. Also, Marine has had the opportunity to appear on television shows such as MusiquePlus.
Marine is currently on tour with Uncle Kracker, with every moment of downtime spent between the studio and the road with Highway Hunters.
Marine proudly endorses Hammond Organ, Gator Cases, JH Audio, Conquest Cables, Trek Products and Tonewheel General Hospital.
