Chicago songwriter Ryne Estwing (of Scattered Trees and Horse in the Sea) is performing with a rotating cast of friends and musicians with his new tribe, Louis & The Hunt.

Louis & The Hunt will be releasing its first EP in the next few months, but until then, listeners can get a preview of several of the songs included on MySpace.
And, for your viewing pleasures, a gorgeous video for the lovely song Day Trip has been put together by JM Harper, a gifted Chicago filmmaker:
Louis & The Hunt is performing Tuesday, January 26 at Lincoln Hall. Get tickets now!
