Five-Song Digital EP Is The Companion Piece To His Breakthrough Album, "Sounds Like This," Which Has Sold Over 100,000 Units

Hutchinson Hits The Road With Kelly Clarkson July 29th;
Headlining Tour Underway

Burbank, CA- Sounds Like This Live – a new five-song EP from Eric Hutchinson – will be available at digital retailers beginning tomorrow. The collection is a companion piece to Hutchinson’s breakthrough album, Sounds Like This, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and has sold more than 100,000 copies.

“As I’ve performed the songs live, they have continued to change,” says Hutchinson, who will head out on tour with Kelly Clarkson in July after wrapping up his current headlining tour. “So I decided to revisit them and take stock of where they are now. I invited an intimate group of fans and friends and played the songs the way I had originally written them: alone with an instrument.”

Hutchinson, a Warner Bros. Records recording artist, was the only new artist to score a No. 1 hit at AAA radio in 2008. Now “Rock & Roll” is a Top 15 hit at Hot AC radio where it’s been added by such influential stations as WPLJ (New York City) and KSWD (Los Angeles). It is currently going for adds at Top 40 radio. The single is No. 1 in Australia for the second week, and Hutchinson was met with wildly enthusiastic crowds on his recent Down Under dates with Jason Mraz. The video for “Rock & Roll” was originally added at VH1 last August, and is now back on the channel in medium rotation. It is also getting play on mtvU and LOGO.

His new single, “Ok, It’s Alright With Me,” was #1 Most Added its first week at AAA radio. The accompanying video recently premiered on Yahoo! Music, was tapped as the “Video of the Day” on the AOL Music home page and was featured on You can check out the videos for both singles at:

Exuberant and uplifting, Sounds Like This has struck a chord in these uncertain times. Described as “infectious” (Philadelphia Daily News) and “soulful” (Boston Globe), Hutchinson, a Yahoo! “Who’s Next” artist, offers up humor and hope in the face of adversity. “Clever songs, quirky grooves, a flair for tunefully evoking a generation of classic rockers: All of that appears to come naturally to Hutchinson, and it's that seeming effortlessness that makes his music so disarming,” observed The Washington Post while Time Out New York said: “You’ve gotta give him credit for the sheer unassuming good vibes emanating from these Sublime-meets-Billy Joel hookfests.”

The track listing for Sounds Like This Live is as follows:

1. All Over Now

2. Oh!

3. Back To Where I Was

4. You’ve Got You
