Hutchinson (http://www.erichutchinson.com) was the only new artist to score a #1 hit at Triple A radio in 2008. In April 2009, he released Sounds Like This Live – a digital EP showcasing live versions of five songs from his breakthrough album, Sounds Like This, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and has sold more than 110,000 copies in the U.S. Sounds Like This has been hailed as “infectious” (Philadelphia Daily News), ” refreshingly inventive” (popmatters.com), “exuberant” (The Baltimore Sun) and “soulful” (Boston Globe), and Hutchinson has also garnered critical acclaim for his live shows. “Hutchinson is undeniably charismatic, splitting his time between keyboard and guitar, crooning about stormy romances and everyday struggles,” said The Washington Post in a concert review.
“I’ve been on the road for two years straight,” says Hutchinson, a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist who will tour with Kelly Clarkson after wrapping up his headlining dates. “The live show has never been better, we keep reinventing it – the songs have really evolved, and we throw in a few surprises. It’s really about taking the performance wherever the audience wants to lead it that night.”
