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

It's a shame no one else has reviewed this CD yet. This is a great debut (of sorts) by an up and coming artist. The Amazon description lists Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Ben Folds as influences.....among others. I would say all of these are evident in this CD. My favorite song is "You Don't Have To Believe Me", but the entire CD is very solid from beginning to end. It is a little on the short side (not sure of the actual length, but it seems to go by quickly when listening to it), however when a lot of artists make longer albums with a number of filler songs......it is nice to find someone who just put together a bunch of good songs without the filler. If you like Ben Folds, Jason Mraz and others in that genre of music.......along with a good amount of soul(that Stevie Wonder influence), lots of different instruments(all used very well) and some very well-written songs, Eric Hutchinson is for you! I actually like him more than Folds (Hutchinson is a better singer) and Mraz (Jason seems to be lacking something that I can't put my finger on....it may be that "soul" element--he has some good songs, but they get a little stale after awhile for me). I've listened to this CD a number of times and it is still spending a lot of time in my CD player.

A note about my review of 4 stars. I see TONS of 5 star reviews on Amazon, but there can't be THAT many 5 star albums out there. To me, 5 stars needs to be reserved for albums like Kind of Blue, Highway 61 Revisited, The White Album, etc.......albums that could at least be in the discussion for the best of the year if not the best of an era. This is a great CD, but I don't think it will be considered one of the best of the year......one of the best debuts? Maybe........

I think it's great when a new artist is able to release their first album on their own label which gives them the freedom to put out something they are proud of without pressure from the record execs. Eric's deal with Maverick fell through, so he recorded "Sounds Like This" on his own label "Let's Break Records." [...] In case you haven't heard, Daryl Hall has a great new web show from his home and features some great new artists, Eric being the most recent. Eric's music is infused with lots of soul (reminiscent of Stevie Wonder). Eric and Daryl perform a funky-soulful rendition of the Rufus & Chaka Khan hit "Tell Me Something Good" along with some of Eric's cuts off his album and a couple of Hall & Oates goodies. It makes me optimistic about today's music when I hear talented new artists like Eric that are putting out new stuff that has that "old school" sound! Looking forward to more from Eric!!

I've had Eric's new CD for a week or more - and been playing it a lot - but held off posting my review until today because I had a chance to see him perform some of the songs live last night. He's as good in person - with support from just his drummer and bassist (who plays keyboards when Eric is on guitar rather than on keyboards). There's even a guitar solo on the song "It Hasn't Been Long Enough" where the sax is on the CD.

But back to the CD. The hooks are great and one listen to "Rock and Roll" will grab you. Check out the youtube video of this song to get a sample. The visuals are silly but LISTEN to the song.

This is the kind of pop music that is light and catchy and will appeal to a wide age range. At his gig there were fans from 16 to 60. I agree 100% with the three other reviews posted here before this one.

My only suggestion for the CD - but obviously too late to have happen - is that I'd have liked a lyric sheet, especially for "You Don't Have To Believe Me". Eric's music is catchy but, on this track in particular, the words are hard to decipher.

I'll certainly be waiting for the follow-up to this disc and hope he'll come by again with a longer performance. (He was opening for Missy Huggins, who I felt was not the perfect match for his music.)

"Sounds Like This" is a prodigious pop album of the old school middle of the road. Eric Hutchinson creates elegant songcraft that pulls from immaculate influences (Billy Joel, Ben Folds and Stevie Wonder all predominate), piercing them into clever and catchy three minute AM Radio pop ditties. It's guilty pleasure music for those who swoon over the likes of Maroon 5 and Jason Mraz.

He has one bona fide hit on "Sounds Like This," the cute and tropical "Rock and Roll." Why this didn't become a major radio smash eludes me, even if Eric's backstory (after a pair of major label snafus, he became the first self released artist to go top ten on i-tunes) hides his considerable fan base. Like most of the songs on the CD, Eric keeps it playful without getting too caught up in the goofy (shades of Mika's Life in Cartoon Motion). And also like many clever pop-writers, Eric knows enough to keep it tight. The album's running time isn't even 40 minutes.

There's always space for clever singer-songwriters in my world and "Sounds Like This" is great ear-candy. If the current crop of popsters like Maroon 5, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, John Mayer or Mika play in your daily rotation, "Sounds Like This" will keep you satisfied.
