Eric Hutchinson - Watching You Watch Him (Official Lyric Video)


Eric Hutchinson
Moving Up Living Down

As Eric Hutchinson journeyed toward the making of Moving Up Living Down, the delightfully witty and supremely wise follow-up to his hit debut Sounds Like This, he developed a very simple rule regarding new songs.

“I traveled so long and got to see so many people and places,” he says. “And sharing music with the fans every ... Read more in Amazon's Eric Hutchinson Store

Editorial Reviews

Road-tested in every setting from a converted garage in Salt Lake City to the 30,000-seat Calgary Saddledome, from San Diego to Dubai, the artist and songs alike bear a playful confidence that was boosted along the way. As the Washington, DC-raised singer, pianist and guitarist traveled the world over the course of several years, word of mouth about his irresistible songs and engaging presence brought out consistently growing concert crowds. That helped turn the song "Rock & Roll" into an international hit. The songs "OK, It s Alright With Me" and "Oh!" also caught fire.

On Moving Up Living Down, all of Eric s ever-widening musical embraces are brought into play, from the exuberant folk-pop bounce of "Watching You Watch Him" (the first single, which debuted on the season premiere of ABC-TV s "Grey's Anatomy") through the reggae lilt of opener "Talk is Cheap" through the soul grounding of "The Basement." The music is tuneful and rhythmic. The lyrics are engaging and reflective. Comparisons, as always, are tough, but you wouldn t go wrong thinking of a spectrum that includes Paul Simon, the Beatles and Stevie Wonder, all integrated into a truly Hutchinsonian whole. Produced by Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Regina Spektor) and Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, James Morrison).

5.0 out of 5 stars Summer arrives on a shimmery platter April 17, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I have been to plenty of Eric Hutchinson's sold out concerts over the years, but the first time I saw him was a kegger in Los Angeles. It was some loud loft party my friends dragged me to. All of a sudden, this lanky kid plugs in his amp, strums his guitar and within a song, captures the room. In a city filled with hipsters who were doing the Lana Del Rey, I'm too sexy for this room, thing long before she did; here was a guy who was energetic, smiled brightly, and just when you think you saw where the song was going, he takes a left field turn into a Beyonce hook.

His studio albums and live EPs miraculously captured the energy of his live sets on disc, and this new album keeps the party going. I was so worried this big label one would be polished by big-shot producers and bland with big shot collaborators. Nope. This is just pure Eric - stronger songwriting than ever - really fleshed out with a solid band. My only beef, the tempos don't stray much, but then again, when you have struck gold, you can't get too much of a good thing.

Eric's lyrics are sharp. His melodies will get stuck in your head. This is the perfect cure for road rage. Tap your fingers on the steering wheel, sing along and enjoy the sun. John Mayer may get more paparazzi. Jason Mraz might get more gigs on The View and Kelly Ripa, but Eric Hutchinson is the one to watch. And guys, here's another reason to get well versed in his music, Hutchheads (as his adoring female fanbase call themselves) are HOT.

The CD does not contain any booklet or liner notes, so if you're not a CD collector, digital is the way to go. PLUS you get the exclusive bonus track. I had to pay extra for that track, but it was worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hutchinson Delivers Again April 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Really strong album. Admire how he is able to put together such a diverse group of songs while staying true to his sound. Gotta say I'm not crazy about The Basement, but really loving all the other songs! Definitely buy the album and hear for yourself what he's all about!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Wait - Hutch Nails It April 25, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
If it was possible to wear out digital tracks, this one has various clicks and fuzzy pops after one week. "I'm going down to the basement.." to enjoy every track at high volume again. I rarely review albums but Hutch has put together an absolute gem here. After discovering "Sounds Like This" I couldn't wait for another album, man was it worth the wait. Keep it up! I will be recommending this to all my music loving friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Literally speechless. May 26, 2012
By Yuvi
Format:Audio CD
I don't think I've been this excited about an album in years. This is one amazing gem of an album I know I'll be listening to for years to come.
Best Days is an amazing song -- I literally had to get up and move to the tunes. Eric hit my favorites list when I first heard Sounds Like This.
Moving Up Living Down tops it. Very polished, but very much the same fantastic style. Can't wait for more to come and hoping for a show in norcal soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Same Eric April 19, 2012
By Tony
Format:Audio CD
This CD is great, I was a little worried that Eric might have changed his sound since he didn't independently create the album like he did on "Sounds Like This" but a quick listen will prove otherwise. Sure it's more polished than the last one but it doesn't come off as over produced and most importantly you can still tell he is the same artist. I absolutely recommend this CD, Favorite songs are "The People I Know" and "Talk is Cheap".

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent music April 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eric's previous album, "Sounds Like This" was an extraordinary assortment of excellent songs. It was so good that I was concerned that his next album would be a disappointment by comparison. Glad to find that his follow-up was no disappoinment! In particular, Best Days, The People I Know, and Breakdown More are great songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars best singer/songwriter out there April 18, 2012
By SPPound
Format:MP3 Music
Eric Hutchinson has the best combination of talent, musicality, lyricism of all the singer/songwriters out there in the mainstream. I've been waiting for this album to come out for years! He has a great funk sensability and works it into his songs well. Always a good live show too with a great sense of humor, keeps it light. Must listen for any John Mayer, Jason Mraz fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars June 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD
With his sophomore album pop artist Eric Hutchinson puts out another soulful pop album equally as impressive as his debut album. Eric Hutchinson broke through with his hit single "Rock & Roll" from his debut album "Sounds Like This". John Mayer and Jason Mraz may be the top artists in this genre of music, but with this album Eric Hutchinson earns a spot right next to them with songs such as "Best Days", "Breakdown More" and "The People I Know". If you are a Jason Mraz or John Mayer fan then this is definitely an album to check out. With 11 songs this album seems to be relatively short, which ends up being a somewhat good thing because it stops the album from dragging on. With "Moving Up Living Down" Eric Hutchinson's label debut has catchy hooks which demonstrates his strong vocal ability that makes this an enjoyable album without straying from the sounds from his independent album, "Sounds Like This". "Moving Up Living Down" isn't a genre breaking album and runs short at only thirty nine and a half minutes, but it displays the smooth vocals of Eric Hutchinson and is a good album earning 3 1/2 stars.
Key Tracks: Best Days, Breakdown More, The People I Know, Talk Is Cheap, Watching you Watch him, In The First Place, Not There Yet
