Red Line Roots | Brian Carroll
"Alec Hutson is borderland musician. His sound touches the fringes of a variety of subsets, he doesn’t quite fit into any concrete form or mold that we have set for genres and tastes in current times. A bit rock, a bit roots and with undeniable bluesy-jazz swagger. An artist who can be seen in many forms, be it a more rootsy approach, barefoot with a suitcase drum and his trusty acoustic guitar, a trio with jazzy inflections as he croons smooth and sultry over intricate guitar runs and brushed snares or in the case of the track “Natalie” off of his latest release “Thunder & Lightning”, in a purely striking and electric fashion that really catches the listener."
