Album Review

Eric Hutchinson was supposed to be made a star by Madonna, or at least by her label, but after Maverick went bullet-bra-up in 2005 and Hutchinson went back to self-releasing his own albums, it turned out that all he needed was one prominent blogger on his side. After Perez Hilton waxed rhapsodic about Hutchinson's Sounds Like This on his celeb gossip blog in the summer of 2007, the Virginia-born, L.A.-based singer/songwriter suddenly shot into the digital charts. It helps immensely that Hutchinson's third album is leaps and bounds beyond his previous two, That Could've Gone Better and the live EP ...Before I Sold Out: from the frisky piano-driven opener "OK, It's Alright with Me" onwards, Sounds Like This is a well-produced, cleverly arranged, and immensely catchy batch of AAA singer/songwriter pop songs. On the live EP, "Outside Villanova" sounded like the sort of faux-reggae soft rock fluff that Rupert Holmes might have released as a follow-up to "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)," but in its full-band version, the kitsch aspects of the song are transformed into something closer to Ben Folds Five. Overall, the general air of "sensitive guy with an acoustic guitar" endemic to this brand of singer/songwriter pop is neatly balanced with a sense of playfulness and a knack for quirky arrangement choices that keep the songs from merely dissipating in the air between speakers and ears. Sounds Like This will sound great on the in-house stereo at your local Starbucks, of course, but there's more to it than that.

Stumbled across Mr Hutchinson, but it is truely the best album I bought in 2010!

Brilliant upbeat and uplifting music. Great range of interesting sounds and use of lots of different instuments!
I urge you to buy this album NOW!! I'm still listening to it avidly now we're into 2011, it's just brilliant!


I am a HUGE Jason Mraz fan and as such a friend of mine recommended this album to me. It is AMAZING and I love it, uplifting and clever and so many good tracks ( not a single turkey!)..Stand out for me are Villa Nova and Oh and Food Chain. This album captivated me right from the off and I just cannot wait to hear more from him. ( Apparently he was signed to Madonna's label but I will forgive this minor indiscretion given what came from it).. Love it love it love it... and yes, Ok Its ( very definately) Alright With Me!

Few stories underscore the radical changes experienced by the post-millennial music industry than that of Eric Hutchinson. Originally nurtured and then abandoned by an established label started by a pop superstar, Hutchinson then got discovered by a much larger audience while unsigned, thanks to a digital plug by a notorious Hollywood gossip. Born and raised in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., Hutchinson first began performing in public while attending Emerson College, a performing arts-oriented...
