NOTES
REVIEW: Not Lame Recordings...
Really an simple acoustic masterpiece that will grab the listener in a way not unlike listening to the "Scoop" demo series from Pete Townshend for those familiar with these pieces of works. Pure Folk-Pop, raw, unpolished and unpretentious. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Chris Bell, Paul Westerberg, Karl Wallinger, and Donovan come to mind, but JOE NORMAL (HUTCH) may have the songwriting goods to stand up to his influences. Please take a moment and listen below, you’ll hear the warmth, intimacy and sheer competency of an artist in full control of not only his talents but one that can take the bare minimalism on display here and not only hold your attention, but have you snap up out of your seat, leaning forward to hear the song more closely.
JOE NORMAL (HUTCH) is at home performing intimate coffeehouse settings acoustically on guitar and piano, or delivering explosive full-wattage arena rock type shows with his bandmates. It’s this type of versatility that keeps his music interesting and captures the attention of listeners who, like him, constantly flip the car stereo dial back and forth between classic rock, college radio and alternative stations in search of something genuine and new. A note from Joe, explains even more: "What you are hearing are a batch of songs that I’ve chosen to release as sparse and as raw as they sounded when I wrote them. For better or worse, they are vulnerable and imperfect... but, honest. It stuck me some time ago that there is an over-abundance of highly-processed, hyper-digitized music smothering absolutely every media channel. It seems that in a time when reality based entertainment is at an all time peak, we couldn’t be farther away from witnessing the truth. So, in the spirit of pure simplicity, and with a care-free folk-you attitude, I’d like to share with you these organic melodies and musings."
