"Local Music Spotlight: Hunter Hileman invites us into the "Groove Inn""

“a pretty impressive mix of soul, rap, funk, and even wobbly jazz-rock stylings” - Void


Up and coming artist Groove Inn teamed up with Denver Hall for their latest soulfully smooth eccentrically endearing EP “Summer Pack”

Each of the four singles offers a different sticky-sweet serving of Funk, Soul, Jazz, RnB, and Pop laced Hip Hop. But the standout track has to be the futuristic work of Funk-soaked Neo-Soul “Drive”.

Without any amount of deliberation, the track kicks in with the groove-deep bends of the bass accompanied by the instantly magnetic Rap verses. You’ll be hooked in the tonally warm hit from there on out.

Playful Hip Hop combined with pure Funk and Soul will always be timelessly uplifting. But the main distinction with Drive is how far they were able to project their sound into the future. It’s all too easy to expect plenty more innovation from Groove Inn in the future. I’d put them on your radar sooner rather than later.

You can check out Groove Inn’s single Drive for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

"Welcome to the Groove Inn" EP
"Summer Pack" EP
"The Game"- Faze Wave x Groove Inn (single)



Groove Inn originally started as the solo project of Hunter Hileman (bassist for Faze Wave and Denver Hall) who self-produced songs at his home in Jacksonville, FL. 

Through early collaboration with friends and other local artists (Denver Hall, Miles From London, James Cissel, Tenny Rudolph, Faze Wave, and Yellow Steve [as well as several others]) Groove Inn branded itself as the product of a diverse cast of evolving musicians under the direction of Hileman. 

After relocating to Nashville in 2019, Hileman assembled Groove Inn Live to perform local shows and tour. The Groove Inn Live band currently consists of members Hunter Hileman (singer, bassist), Maya Daniel (singer), Braelyn Watt (singer), Zachary Taylor (keyboardist), and Justin Schrier (drummer). 

Hileman has had a number of recent releases: “Welcome to the Groove Inn” (May 25th, 2019), “The Game” (Faze Wave & Groove Inn), and a collaborative EP with Denver Hall titled “Summer Pack” (June 2019). 

As 2020 begins, Hileman plans to continue developing the group through project releases and live shows...
