Suspended Animation

Alec Hutson makes thinking music. Wistful by the open window music. He makes lover’s music. And lovers’ music.  Sweating-hard-from-singing-your-little-heart-out-on-the-interstate music. And always real musician’s music: technical, punchy, intricate. Usually, it’s all these things at the same time. A veteran of the New England festival and venue scenes, Hutson mixes his silky voice with an innovative multi-instrumentalism to create “a groovy indie sound that’s both catchy and contemplative” (WBUR ARTery). Fresh off multiple nominations for Best Video of the Year (2020 Boston Music Awards and the 2021 New England Music Awards) and with a two-part concept album due later this year, Hutson has proven time-and-again to possess that rarest of gifts: a talent for creating music of the moment, whatever that moment may be.
