Brent Hutchinson Band

Brent Hutchinson live at Elme Hall on April 2nd
At last the Hutch is back

Inspired by Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gary Moore, Robben Ford, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Robin Trower and many other great guitarists, Brent is known for his explosive brand of Rock 'N' Rolling Blues. Which is also punctuated with sweetness and subtlety in just the right places. That special intense guitar playing is complimented by strong, clear vocals.

Brent learned his craft as part of The Red House Blues Band, Double Cream, Planet Graffiti, and The Offenders. Brent recorded two albums with his band Planet Graffiti between 2009 and 2013, enjoying two UK tours with award-winning American tourists The Billy Walton Band, and he has shared the stage other top talents including Hamilton Loomis, Danny Bryant, Ryan McGarvey, Rob Tognoni, and Rebecca Downes.

With the recently formed Brent Hutchinson Band, Brent is taking his own music and profile to the next level. Even as Brent's recent E.P, 'This Is Me Now', produced by Gary Shaw, is being enjoyed by his fans, a brand new album of full band tracks is heading towards release.

The album will follow hot in the heels of a superb live review in Blues in Britain magazine and very well received performances supporting Rob Tognoni at The Beaverwood Club and Rebecca Downes at Club V.

The best guitarist you have never heard of ”....Blues in Britain Let's Remedy that !!!

Well we've heard him, more than once, and that's why he's coming back.  A seriously good musician......

Enjoy the show. It is high energy and raucous, filling dance floors and spilling drinks.
