Most SF Giants fans know Hunter Bishop for his potential as a big-league outfielder. However, off the field, Bishop released a sneak preview of his newest music project today on his social media.
It’s been a chaotic few months for SF Giants top prospect Hunter Bishop. After testing positive for COVID-19, he faced a prolonged ordeal to join the team at the alternate site. However, even after a long layoff from official team activities, Bishop has been one of the most impressive prospects at the Instructional League in Arizona. Just this week, some highlights have shown him tapping into his potential plus-plus power.
However, in a post on Instagram today, Bishop revealed another passion he’s been working on lately: his music. For those unfamiliar, Bishop has produced music under the stage name BISH for some time. Primarily an electronic-dance music (EDM) producer, Bishop’s more recent projects appear to be more focused on collaborating with other artists and integrating a vocal component to his beats.
In an interview with Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area, Bishop spent his time in quarantine fine-tuning his music-making talents. According to Johnson, Bishop had already completed 20-25 unreleased songs. While that could be enough for an EP or Album, Bishop’s post today suggested his next release, coming on December 2nd, may just be one single.
Most SF Giants fans want to see Hunter Bishop’s highlights from his work on the field. Still, it’s always exciting to see players pursue their passions off the field as well. It seems like Bishop has been working to develop his musical ear and has an exciting new project putting it to the test.
