Seattle show review and photos
The cheers were so loud during the pause of their second song, Watching You Watching Him, that Hutchinson and his band were unable to continue the breakdown. With a smile on his face, he pleaded, “We love listening to this and could do it all night, but we would never be able to finish our set!” Focus, people, focus. This energy continued for an hour and a half, as Eric Hutchinson and his band ripped through a 20 song set, sugared with hits one after the other. Hutchinson likened his new album to a baby that remains awake through the night, constantly needing to be fed and having its neck supported. That’s one way to put it, I suppose. He asked for silence before starting an acoustic version of Forget About Joni, a song he said made him feel most vulnerable. Hutchinson may want to start bringing reinforcements, because this crowd wasn’t ready to slow down any time soon.

"On the first two albums, the songs were a lot of therapy for me. There was good and bad in there. For Pure Fiction I wanted something bigger and better. Before I sat down to write, I decided not to focus on the negative - that could be a double album, probably. But I’m going to focus on the good things in life. That cracked something wide open inside of me. As soon as I figured some of this stuff out, I wrote half the album in about three days."
Major tour announcement coming next week!
Wall Street Journal ‘SPEAKEASY’ premieres Eric Hutchinson’s “Big Thumping” first single from new album ‘PURE FICTION’ out April 8
Eric Hutchinson has confirmed the April 8 release of his new studio album, ‘Pure Fiction.’ On the follow-up to the “soulful” (People), critically acclaimed ‘Moving Up Living Down,’ Eric works for the first time with producers Jerrod Bettis (Adele, The Lonely Island) and Aben Eubanks (Kelly Clarkson), resulting in his catchiest, most hard-hitting album to date. The Wall Street Journal’s ‘Speakeasy’ just premiered his first single, “Tell The World,” calling it “a bouncy pop tune with a big thumping beat.”
The eight originals and two bonus tracks on ‘Pure Fiction’ serve as a celebration of rhythm - South African, Bossa nova, four-on-the-floor rock and slap-back funk. Set against experiences from a wave of touring and an inspiring trip to Barcelona, Hutchinson’s ‘Pure Fiction’ manifests a global view and a pop symphony for the everlasting moment. “Tell The World,” the record’s first single, is a striking prologue to the album’s underlying theme - holding onto the best moments in life and shamelessly shouting them from a mountaintop.
"The more places you go the more you realize the same things matter to everybody," says Hutchinson, recalling his "inspiration wall", a shrine to creativity he hung above his workspace; photos, paintings, and postcards. "I found this old postcard from the 1950’s and hung it on my wall. One day I was looking at it and wondering what the story was behind it. So I wrote one for it," Hutchinson explains about his new ballad, "Sun Goes Down."
