Rock & Roller

As a tribute to Christopher Columbus, I did a little exploring of my own yesterday and discovered a great new artist who I wanted to tell y'all about. His name is Eric Hutchinson, and he's a singer-songwriter with a funky/poppy Jason Mraz/Ben Folds/Jack Johnson/John Mayer vibe that I'm really digging. Check out the video for his first single "Rock & Roll," which I've embedded below. It reminds me of Mraz's first single, "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)." If you like the Hutch's song, click here to download that track and others. Or, better yet, head to iTunes and buy the new deluxe edition of Eric's debut CD, Sounds Like This (in addition to Ray LaMontagne's Gossip in the Grain, of course). For added fun, check out Live from Daryl's House tomorrow, Wednesday, when Eric will be interviewed by Daryl Hall, of Hall & Oates. Sure, I may be a little late to the party — Perez Hilton has already talked all about the Hutch and VH1 has already named Eric an artist that You Oughta Know — but that doesn't mean you still have to be in the dark about him. Check out the video and let me know if you're digging the Hutch's music as much as I am.
