Soul music is in Eric Hutchinson’s blood. For the budding star, it’s a sound that is both mellow and uptempo, which fits his profile and demeanor quite well.
Hutchinson is no stranger to the music industry. Starting his commercial career in 2003, Hutchinson has nearly 15 years of recording and performing under his belt. During his tenure, his talent has gotten him noticed with some of pop’s modern-day heavyweights. From Kelly Clarkson to Pentatonix, Hutchinson’s soul-pop has attracted a legion of fans both famous and regular Joe/Jane.
So, how is Eric Hutchinson?
Hailing from Maryland, Hutchinson’s first foray into the music world began in 2005, when Madonna’s Maverick Records noticed his talent and he signed a deal with the company. Though the label would go under before his debut LP was released, he regained the rights to it and released Sounds Like This independently in 2007.
The LP got the attention of the famed Perez Hilton, who rained all sorts of praise on the LP and helped it reach the Top Ten in iTune Sales (#5). In September of that year, Sounds Like This appeared at Number One on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and by the end of the year, the LP made history by becoming the highest charting album on iTunes by an unsigned talent.
Safe to say, Sounds Like This changed Hutchinson’s life.
Warner Bros. quickly dotted on the singer, and his career has been on the uptick ever since. Today, with stardom fully under his belt, Hutchinson will hit the road for The Modern Happiness Tour, and tickets on this tour are sure to sell out.
