Louisville Rock Closeup
By Eddy Metal
Hunter Borowick

Name: Hunter Borowick.

Age: 17.

Instrument: My primary instrument is guitar, but I also play bass, drums, and piano. With that being said, my true passion is the kazoo...

Band/Former Bands: I currently play in both Doppelgänger and Unleashed, but I have a few new/unnamed projects starting up.

How long on instrument: I've been playing guitar for ten or eleven years now.

Equipment: For guitars, I rock two Custom Comets from Harper Guitars (check them out!) along with a Rickenbacker 330 and a Fender Thinline Telecaster. My pedalboard is constantly changing but right now it is a mix of stuff from a bunch of different companies such as JHS Pedals, Strymon, Xotic Effects, and Electro-Harmonix, to name a few. For amps, it just depends on what I'm in the mood for. My favorites are the Fender Dual Showman Reverb, Music Man HD130, Fuchs Mantis, Fractal Axe FX II XL+, and Marshall JCM900.

Influences: David Bowie, D'Angelo, Parliament-Funkadelic (Eddie Hazel in particular), The Beatles, Black Sabbath, Radiohead, King's X, Smashing Pumpkins, Prince, and The Cure.

My first gig: Probably a Louisville School of Rock show at Bearno's By The Bridge.

Hobbies: Playing music of all kings, video games, and watching movies.

Favorite movies: Midnight in Paris, The Big Lebowski, Kill Bill (Vol. 1 and 2), Superbad, Clueless, The Shawshank Redemption, Inglorious Basterds, and Star Wars (all of them, but mostly the original trilogy)...

Favorite food: Sushi. 100%...

Favorite place: Chicago, IL. ...

Favorite sports or team: Chicago Cubs.

What I'm listening to nowadays: Pavement, Erykah Badu, Wilco, The 1975, Kendrick Lamar, Death Cab for Cutie, A Tribe Called Quest, Kanye West, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, D'Angelo, and Anderson .Paak...

Coolest thing I've done: My band got to open for dUg Pinnick of King's X and Corey Glover of Living Colour a few years ago. They're two of my favorite vocalists ever,...

Most embarrassing moment: One time I showed up for a gig not realizing my pants were ripped right in "that area", so I had to play the whole show holding my guitar in a way that covered it.

Bad Habits: Procrastination is my main bad one. It's not good for school, haha...

What was your first concert ever: 3 Doors Down, Shinedown, and Alter Bridge.

If you could meet a Rockstar (past or present), who would it be, and why: David Bowie! He's one of my favorite artists of all time and he's just so cool. It's probably because he's from another planet...

Who do you love: My friends and family. I'm very lucky to have them...
