Eric Hutchinson Quotes.
I started taking piano lessons when I was 8 and I wrote my first song shortly after. Music was really important in my family. My grandma was a professional violin player and my parents first met when my dad was giving my mom guitar lessons.
I’m sort of a traditionalist usually. I love old soul music and The Beatles; I realized I was sort of trying to make music sometimes that fit into an era that’s gone.
I like to talk to the crowd on stage. I don’t like going to a concert and feeling like the people on stage don’t care whether or not I’m there.
To me, there are 3 parts of the album process: writing, recording, and my favorite part: getting to sing the songs with the fans every night.
I think the biggest thing is that I have fun with the fans on Twitter and Instagram and at the show. It’s a fun time to be able to communicate with all the different types of social media stuff.
I love sports. If I could be a baseball player I would. I just am not good at it at all.
I used to play trumpet when I was a kid, and then I got braces, and I couldn’t really play it anymore, so sometimes I wish I could still play that; I think it’s a great instrument, so maybe one of these days I’ll pick it back up.

I was raised really strongly on The Beatles; they were huge in my family, my parents loved them, and they used to quiz me on who was singing which song, and we’d play certain records for certain events, and things like that. So I mean, they were sort of my introduction to pop music.
When I was first starting out, I drove myself around the country in my Honda Civic, playing anywhere that would have me. This is a chance to strip the songs down to their roots and let the audience hear them the way I write them.
I want to be like Ben Folds. Everyone loves his music, but you could be sitting next to him on a plane and never know it.” “I would much rather people know my music than know my name.
I’ve never really presumed to know what my fans want or like. When I’m making the music, I just chase whatever I find interesting that day and luckily there are people who find it interesting as well.
I think my music tastes keep changing, so I think the music I make changes a little bit.
It’s always weird when I meet people who don’t know how to crack crabs open and eat them the right way. I take a lot of pride in my crab-eating ability.
I don’t need to get paid. I just wanna open. I just wanna get in front of new people.
