happy. More pictures soon to come!
Hutcinson grew up in Tacoma Park Md. and said there "wasn't much to do" in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.
"I think that's why I started writing songs," said Hutchinson. "I like the Beatles, Elvis Costello... Michael Jackson, Billy Joel. They're masters of melody.
"What I'm trying to do is continue that tradition," said Hutcinson.
At Ritchie, Hutcinson performed many of his hits and songs from his 2012 album, "Moving Up Living Down." He also covered the classics "Play that funky music" and the Backstreet Boys 1999 staple, "I want it that way."
Judging from the screaming and lip syncing, Hutchinson's hit "Watching you watch him" was a crowd favorite. The song is one that, he said, is his favorite to sing and perform.
On his latest album, Hutcinson said he likes switching back and forth between piano and guitar- something he said is the "cool thing" about music. He likes the freedom with which it comes.
As for his favorite set of lyrics? Hutchinson said he likes "whatever I just wrote."
"As an artist, you always like whichever song is newest," he said,
Hutcinson said his favorite lyrics change every day. Right now he really likes the lyrics of his song, "Not there yet."
"I remember writing it and feeling what I felt," Hutchinson said. "I find healing every day when I sing it."
