Sam Hunt has spent much of his life on the road, traveling across the country as a performer and poet.

Thirty years ago, Hunt teamed up with Colin Hogg – a legendary music writer and reviewer. He wrote the fascinating biography Angel Gear: On the Road with Sam Hunt.

The pair on Thursday launched their latest collaboration, Sam Hunt: Off the Road, a biography of New Zealand’s best-known poet.

This latest biography looks at the non-stop life and poems of a man familiar to many Kiwis.

Mark Sainsbury, host of RadioLIVE’s Morning Talk, caught up with the two at Mr Hunt’s local, The Thirsty Tui in Paparoa.

Sam Hunt: Off the Road is on sale now.
