Listen To This: The Next Big Thing

We're obsessed! Obsessed!

Our tastes don't always tend to be mainstream, but we think Eric Hutchinson has the potential to be huge!

His music is what you want and what we need to hear on radio - good pop songs with soul and charm.

If you take the best bits of John Mayer, Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson, you'd have Eric Hutchinson.

We heard his music on MySpace, bought his album on iTunes and we can't stop listening to it!

Eric Hutchinson is going to be big in 2008!

Check out a sampling of his beautifully crafted songs below:

  30. Who pays you to endorse this dreck? says – reply to this


    30

    Yer kidding right? Urp! Will you swear an oath by all that is sacred that you are NOT getting paid for this endorsement, Perez? I listened to 2 of those clips and it just sounds like clanging jangling shit.

  31. Megan says – reply to this


    31

    This guy rocks! : D
    Thanks Perez for showing this stuff!

  32. Monkey Turd a.k.a. Perez The Turdstser says – reply to this


    32

    Perez is a racist turd. He has nothing but disdain for black people. He has a very low opinion of blacks. Take for instance his hatred of Beyonce. She’s somewhat talented, but Perez hates her for flashing her armpit. However Perez loves Paris Hilton who’s been to jail for d.u.i, or whatever it was, and who’s been videotaped sucking dick and taking it up the ass. And, by the way, Paris has no talent whatsoever. Perez, You Suck you piece of shit!!!

  33. anne says – reply to this

  38. Monkey Turd a.k.a. Perez The Turdstser says – reply to this


    38

  47. Matt says – reply to this

  48. hmm says – reply to this

    He is no Jack Johnson. What an insult to Jack!

  51. OFM says – reply to this


    51

    Lame. To hear good "pop" music, check out ofmhq.com

  52. Monkeycox says – reply to this


    52

    I dig it. Reminds me of Jason Mraz mixed with Amos Lee. I'm off to illegally download it now!

  53. morningwood says – reply to this


    53

    that doesn't impress me much.

  54. you KNOW says – reply to this


    54

    he is AMAZING!! seriously sexxy ,smooth voice.

  55. me says – reply to this


    55

    agreed. he is awesome live. great great guy.

  56. Jennifer says – reply to this


    56

    No offense to the guy himself, but he sounds like any other guy in your local bars in America. There are tons of talented guys out there just like him. Go check out youtube or myspace where lots of unknown artists are hoping to be discovered. Honestly, I didn't care for the sample tunes listed on Perez's page. They were okay but not great.

  57. miss jenifer says – reply to this


    57

    ooohh he is pretty good, but i must say that jason mraz is numero uno in mi corazon! ;)

  58. lala says – reply to this


    58

    he didnt put me in his video when he was in school in boston. boo!

  59. BDM says – reply to this


    59

    OK he's good…but NEVER as good as Jason Mraz, John Mayer, and Jack Johnson..I think instead of the best parts of them, he got the bad things from them, which are still pretty AMAZING!! :)

  60. Amelia says – reply to this


    60

    Well if you go to his show you'd be 100 times more impressed. He used to do improv and he brings that into his shows. SO funny and quick witted…

    He may sound similar to other artists, but he's good at variation and spare of the moment ideas to make every song/show original.

    But actually, I should trash talk him so there won't be so many people at his shows. They're getting crowded!!!

  61. Stef says – reply to this


    61

    Loves IT!

  62. tila says – reply to this


    62

    See now that's decent music, not like that garbage Brittney tries to sing…this is someone with talent

  63. nannyapril says – reply to this


    63

    The first 3 songs sound like an old group called Jellyfish. Jellyfish was better. Gimme more Mika!!

  64. Christine says – reply to this


    64

    OMG! I love that you have discovered the amazingness of Eric Hutchinson! I have known about Eric for over a year now, and you will fall in love once you see him live! Honestly, although I do not agree but I can understand some of the comments below, but when you experience him and his music live, I assure you, you will fall in love.

  65. kgrzep says – reply to this

  66. underdog says – reply to this


    66

    He sounds like Sondre Lerche. I prefer the Lerche.

  67. kase says – reply to this


    67

    his song 'outside villanova' is sick.. not on his myspace but definitely worth downloading. im actaully from outside of villanova, pa. ERIC IS AWESOME. THANKS FOR THE EXPOSURE

  68. Christine says – reply to this


    68

    I saw Eric about a year ago at the Recher Theater in Baltimore, and I loved him!!! I've been a huge fan forever…thanks for putting him on here!

  75. Steve says – reply to this


    75

    Hes totally playing the Knitting Factor in NYC on Thurs Sept 20. I am so going. Have been a fan since "My Guitar" in 2000.

  76. teajay99 says – reply to this


    76

  79. bigjohnson says – reply to this


    79

    He's playing at the Knitting Factory in New York City in 2 weeks — I gotta go see this live!!

  80. emma says – reply to this


    80

    hurray for showcasing one of my favorite people. eric's from my hometown, a little hippie suburb of washington, d.c. he's great to see live, absolutely hilarious! the new album is good, but i can't get over the fact that he has a band now. older tracks (like "jettison") are so amazing with just him and a guitar.

  81. Den says – reply to this


    81

    This guy sucks. Sounds just like every other song around these days, nothing original. Money Machine for little girls. Way to go Corp Record Dudes!

  82. MJ Carollson says – reply to this


    82

    what crap. And he looks like a serial rapist.

  83. Eternal Skeptic says – reply to this


    83

    I feel like I should be bobbing my pigtails along to this music while skipping around in my poodle skirt. Seriously middle school-ish. PLEASE don't tell me "bubblegum pop" is coming back…

  84. AES says – reply to this


    84

    I went to college with Eric. Its about time someone noticed.

  85. Ryan says – reply to this


    85

    :-)
    Eric Hutchinson is so good…definitely listen to "Rock & Rock (Live)" from his album "Before I Sold Out"

  86. Scott says – reply to this


    86

    Seen him in concert and have been listening for the last three years. You could not be more dead on about him. HUGE!

  87. j says – reply to this


    87

    i think it is typical and boring. We need to hear someone like Justin Jones and the Driving Rain on the radio. That man can sing.

  88. BRanft says – reply to this


    88

    I've been listening to his stuff for years! He rocks my socks… download his live album!

  92. atworkandbored says – reply to this


    92

    i love what i'm hearing so far! i've been looking for something that sounds like this for a while. i love jason mraz, john mayer, and jack johnson, so it's nice to find someone else that's similar too. thanks for all the music samples you post, i may not always be a fan of all your musical tastes, but i am in this case! =D

  93. sarah says – reply to this
