British musician James Hunter performs the blues and soul: two genres steeped in heartache and hard times. But his latest album, inspired by his wife, sounds like a soul music valentine.

WBUR's All Things Considered host Lisa Mullins talked with Hunter — and his wife, Jessie — about his life and his music. He performs at Boston's City Winery on Feb. 19.

This segment aired on February 16, 2018.
