It was his grandfather, Glenn Burris, a Broadway singer who first sparked Hucks curiosity of singing at a young age. Huck Notari grew up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, where his parents first introduced him to the piano and he taught himself to play the guitar at the age of 17.
Huck later moved to Eugene, Oregon where he joined up with a country blues, ragtime band called the Kitchen Syncopators (with Gill Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show, Woody Pines and Felix Hatfield) and toured up and down the west coast. He also found himself in New Orleans, where he was a Charlie Chaplin mime on Royal Street. But it wasn’t until 2007, when he moved to Oregon City that Huck discovered his own voice and wrote his first album, “Highland”, followed by his second album,” Very Long Dream”, in 2009 and his third, “Huck Notari and the River” in 2013.
Huck Notari’s lyrics and authentic guitar picking are timeless and draw his listeners into a place of nostalgia, broken hearts and old values. Huck currently calls Portland, Oregon his home. He is working on his fourth album and continues to tour around the U.S. and in Europe.
