Eric Hutchinson is an international platinum-selling singer, songwriter and seasoned touring artist. He has shared the stage with acts such as Jason Mraz, Amos Lee, Ingrid Michaelson, O.A.R., and Michael Franti. His single Rock & Roll earned him his first gold record in the United States and the song became a #1 hit in several countries. Modern Happiness, Eric Hutchinson s fifth studio album, is his finest effort yet. The album s 10 tracks display a dramatic departure from a master songwriter s usual musical forms and lyrical themes, while also expanding on his refined working palette through the many disparate genres that has made his music some of the most engaging of his generation. And while Hutchinson s soul, pop and rock composing has matured exponentially with each previous release, there is a penetratingly earthy and at times unflinchingly raw confessional aspect to each song s subject matter, which translates with striking clarity to his vocals.
