You know when you find a music artist you really like and no one really knows about them just yet? And you feel giddy because somewhere in the space of satellite radio you heard this great tune, came home, found it on iTunes...but then you found an entire great album! That is Eric Hutchinson.
Not alot of artists get their own entire playlist on my nano (Sorry Sasha Fierce...aka Beyonce), but my Vampire Weekend has been replaced. Now let me re-phrase that Vampire Weekend can never be replaced - they're just not at the top of the spin list. It is time for a new album from those guys.
What makes me excited about Hutchinson's album (Sounds Like This) is that it is remnant of Billy Joel with a more bluesy feel. Now I know what you are thinking. I'm not talking about the "We Didn't Start the Fire" Billy Joel or the doo-wop "Longest Time" or "Uptown Girl" Billy Joel. I am talking about the "My Life" and maybe even "Don't Ask Me Why" Billy Joel...but like I mentioned, with a lil' more Blues.
Am I just rambling? Do you even know who Billy Joel is? Has anyone ever endorsed an artist this intently? Should I be asking Eric Hutchinson for a kick-back if so?
Well, I don't want to see Eric Hutchinson on VH1 anytime soon because for a moment I wanna' keep this album to myself...but if he does make it to the big times, maybe I will ask for a wee kick-back :)
