Jack J Hutchinson to release new solo album plus Pledge campaign target smashed in 24 hours.
Jack J Hutchinson’s recently undertook a Pledge Campaign for his new solo album and successfully reached his target in less than 24 hours – and with 58 days to spare. Raising just under £1,500 will contribute to paying for mixing, mastering, CD production and a new video.
The brand new album Paint No Fiction is out 1st December. The 12 track record will feature guest appearances from some of the UK’s finest Blues, Rock and Americana musicians, including Mike Ross (guitar), Alberto Manuzzi (keys), Loris Peverani (drums), Dani Rock (double bass) and Tom Brundage (harmonica). The album was recorded over the last six months at Shoebox Studios in south London with producer Tony Perretta.
Paint No Fiction will be Hutchinson’s second album this year, following his release with the Boom Boom Brotherhood less than six months ago. Jack explains “Whilst recording the BBB album I was writing a hell of a lot. Some of that material didn’t fit with the other band and was more introspective and personal. I guess it’s a bit like Neil Young solo versus Neil Young and Crazy Horse.”
Much of the recording for Jack’s new album was done in the midst of a heavy touring schedule that has seen Hutchinson play dates in Russia and France, plus summer festivals including Ramblin’ Man alongside ZZ Top.
Hutchinson has already started to map out his plans for 2018 he explains “Next year I’ll be doing a 10 date tour of Spain to support the record, plus a host of UK gigs. There’s lots of bands that do short bursts of touring then spend a year recording an album. That would drive me up the wall! I like to work quickly and keep things fresh.”
The first single from the record is “Rattlesnake Woman”, a psychedelic space blues track featuring a duel guitar solo between Hutchinson and Brighton based Mike Ross.
Hutchinson will launch the album with a special ‘Last Waltz’ style gig at Ain’t Nothin But, Soho, London featuring all the musicians on the album on 8th December. He will also be touring the album to Spain in May / June 2018.
