Opportunity of a lifetime: Lafayette’s Hunter deBlanc looking for help to record follow-up _lowres

A Lafayette singer-songwriter could make his dream record, but he’ll need a little help from some friends to do so.

On Sunday, Hunter deBlanc launched a Go Fund Me campaign to secure funds to record a new EP. In total, deBlanc is looking to raise $2,500.

If the goal is met, he will record in Baltimore Oct. 25-30 with producer Paul Leavitt, who has worked with All Time Low, Yellowcard and Senses Fail. Also, during the session, musicians from Jack’s Mannequin and The Dangerous Summer could perform on the songs.

Last summer, deBlanc released a debut EP, “Something to Hold On To.” The five-song effort features piano-tinged pop songs like “Old Fashioned” and “California Orleans.”
