Described by Classic Rock Magazine as “a real rock contender”, London-based blues rock guitarist and songwriter Jack J Hutchinson has announced his Autumn 2023 UK Headline Tour. Jack has toured internationally, sharing stages with the likes of ZZ Top, Bad Company, Kris Barras Band and Blackberry Smoke. What’s more, it’s just been announced that he’s to play Planet Rockstock’s 10th Anniversary Event in December. No wonder, Planet Rock described jack as “An old school troubadour with a love of the heavy and a song in his heart. Watch on as he unleashes gritty riffs and blazing solos.”
Planet Rock have also praised “Jack’s gritty, honest take on blues rock [which] comes with a flourish of biker steel”, whilst Guitarist Magazinewere impressed by how “Growling vocals combine with raunch ‘n’ roll acoustic and electric guitars. It’s a heck of a debut and definitely a name to watch out for.”
Jack J Hutchinson’s most recent album ‘The Hammer Falls’ was released in 2022 via Earache Records Digital Distribution to universal acclaim.
Taking to the road, Jack’s three-piece band, consisting of Jack J Hutchinson himself (vocals, guitar), Phil Wilson (drums) and Charlie Rachel Kay (bass), will be performing tracks from across Hutchinson’s rich catalogue, including his latest material along with tracks from ‘The Hammer Falls’ produced by Josiah J Manning (Kris Barras Band, Inglorious) and last year’s 4-track EP ‘What Doesn’t Kill You’ (which was mixed by Grammy nominee Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, and Led Zeppelin)).
“I am beyond excited to hit the road with my power trio,” says Jack, “We’ve been busy in the studio working on the next album and this will be the first opportunity for people to hear the new tracks. The run will feature a return to some of my favourite venues, plus some exciting festival appearances. We’ll be giving it everything we’ve got!”
Right now, Jack is recording a brand-new album, working once more with producer Josiah J Manning and will be touring internationally throughout 2023.
“I feel like I’ve returned to my roots with this next record,” Hutchinson explains, “The blues and soul have always been key components of my song-writing, and it’s been great to fuse this with the heavy rock of the last album. I can’t wait for people to hear what we’ve been cooking up. Expect big riffs and big choruses!”
