“When I was starting out, I would play rooms that let me get so personal with the audience – that feeling is totally energizing,” says Hutchinson. “On the Almost Solo Tour, we’re going to strip the songs to their roots, share some stories, and get up close and personal!”
Before the Almost Solo Tour kicks off Oct. 15 in San Francisco, Hutchinson still has a set of September and October dates to do with his band as part of his 50-date headline run in support of his most recent studio effort.
In April Moving Up Living Down debuted in the Top 30 on the Nielsen SoundScan chart. Featuring the iTunes single of the week “Watching You Watch Him,” the album was produced by Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Regina Spektor) and Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, James Morrison).
Upcoming dates with the full band include shows in Bloomington, Ind. (Sept. 15); Alexandria, Va. (Sept. 17); Tacoma, Wash. (Sept. 27); San Diego (Oct. 12) and Anaheim, Calif. (Oct. 14).
