    Seven-piece sibling and alt folk band The Hunts are signed to Cherrytree and are touring. Check out their single, "Make This Leap," the video of which is below.

    The pastoral video for "Make This Leap" was shot in The Hunts' hometown of Chesapeake, Virginia, with a few moments filmed on the family's actual property. The idyllic location settings beautifully capture the band's harmony-laced take on alt-folk that's both breathtaking and sweetly ethereal.

    The Hunts have been playing music together almost their entire lives. Ranging from ages 16 to 24, twin sisters Jenni and Jessi and their five brothers Josh, Jonathan, Jordan, Justin and Jamison all learned to sing and play violin as young kids and spent much of their childhood performing throughout their community.

    That's a lot of Js in this family.

    After teaching themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo and drums, The Hunts began experimenting with songwriting and soon brought to life a batch of songs that reveal their sophisticated sense of melody and dreamy innocence.
