A debut album at 59?!
That's right - this is 'Seven Steps Back', the debut album from Steve Hutchinson, former lead singer with the UK's premier Moody Blues tribute band (Blue Onyx). semi-finalist in both the UK Songwriting Contest and the US Song of the Year (he was runner up in the latter this year!).
Described by the legendary singer/flautist and Moody Blues founder Ray Thomas as having "a great voice" Steve is now working on his latest album - but you have his debut one - absolutely free!! What's the album like? Well, read what 2 musician reviewers thought of it...
Paula Smith wrote... "Steve's opening song, Seven Steps Back, takes us through the story of his life with an honesty and openness which is very moving. But this is authentic self-revelation rather than the immature self-indulgence of so many singer-songwriters…..Its a privilege to follow the journey of a deep-thinking, questioning and kind hearted soul, with a great voice … Highly recommended."
And Kindred Spirit leader Elaine Samuels wrote... "This is an enjoyable album of ten catchy, yet thoughtful songs. The style reminds me of some of the best Moody Blues songs….Steve Hutchinson has a smooth, clear, tuneful voice, which is a pleasure to listen to….The whole album is very nicely produced and packaged and definitely well worth a listen!"
So come and have a listen to some melodic soft rock performed by a singer / songwriter who delivers!
