Eric Hutchinson to perform Sept. 23 in Wentz Concert Hall


Warner Bros. Records recording artist Eric Hutchinson performs his blend of irresistible rock songs Sept. 23 at North Central College.

Hutchinson is a Washington, D.C. area native who writes, sings and performs his songs on guitar and piano. His “Sounds Like This” debut album sold more than 250,000 copies and included the international hit “Rock & Roll,” which he performed on such shows as “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”

He has toured worldwide with such artists as Kelly Clarkson, Jason Mraz and One Republic. His second album, “Moving Up Living Down,” was released in April and includes the hit single “Watching You Watch Him,” which debuted on the season premiere of ABC-TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”

“The biggest inspirations of the album were the cities I visited, the inspiration and rhythms of the people,” Hutchinson said. “It’s all about missing people, reconnecting with the spirit that got me started, and finding communities in unexpected places. The album’s called ‘Moving Up Living Down’ because it’s about the chutes and ladders nature of life.”

Hutchinson was selected as a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist and Popmatters.com praises his music as “refreshingly inventive and uniquely soulful.” The Washington Post said, “clever songs, quirky grooves and a flair for tunefully evoking a generation of classic rockers … appear to come naturally to Hutchinson, and it’s that seeming effortlessness that makes his music so disarming.”

Hutchinson performs at 6PM Sun., September 23, in North Central College’s Wentz Concert Hall at the Fine Arts Center, 171 E. Chicago Ave. Tickets are $50 and $45; call the North Central College Box Office at 630-637-SHOW (7469) or visit northcentralcollege.edu/showtix.
