The best kept secret in music

Press


"This is fantastic. I've been listening to your tunes since I got up. I really love them."
-email sent to Daniel from Margaret Brown, director and producer of BE HERE TO LOVE ME: A FILM ABOUT TOWNES VAN ZANDT

"Just like when we do a Robert Johnson cover or a Talking Heads cover, we want to pay tribute to someone...This guy (Hutchens) happens to be young and alive and just as prolific and just as important as our other influences."
-John Bell of Widespread Panic, in BILLBOARD magazine

"As a singer/songwriter, Hutchens could well be one of the most underrated of the past decade. His creativity, use of imagery, songwriting depth, and sheer vocal prowess make him a true original."
-Pete Sienkewicz in HITTIN' THE NOTE magazine

"Some of the most haunted Southern literature never committed to paper...Tales of Southern gothic noir continue to unfurl on LOVESONGS FOR LOSERS, his second collection of solo material. Drawing from the same well as the likes of Flannery O'Connor and William Faulkner, Hutchens grasps the duality of the South and its denizens--the good, the bad and the ugly."
-Justin Gage in AN AQUARIUM DRUNKARD online

"Song-oriented, dark Southern rock. There's a Terry Kay novel called DARK THIRTY (referring to the 30 minutes before the twilight goes dark), and Hutchens' distinctly Southern music reminds me of the mood of that novel, and likewise of its heritage-steeped content."
-Mark Pilvinsky in FLAGPOLE magazine

"Those who know [Hutchens] only through the interpretations of another band are missing out on some of the more deeply poetic and symbolic songs in the notebook. It's hard to typify a single song, but most tend to paint pictures of modern gothic, mixing virtue and vice to weave realistic tales tinged with a sense of ironic humor."
-Chip Schramm in JAMBANDS.COM

"Daniel Hutchens is the Mark Twain of rock n roll."
-Phil Walden of CAPRICORN RECORDS

"Each track plays out like a Flannery O'Connor confessional. Hutchens continues to perfect his craft, and one listen to LOVESONGS FOR LOSERS makes it clear that recognition is long overdue."
-Jamie Lee in GLIDE magazine

"On this night at the intimate Bluebird Theater, Danny Hutchens stepped to the microphone in cowboy boots and all black attire, and lyrically swung for the fences with every effort...At times his stripped away style is reminiscent of a Neil Young leading Crazy Horse through 'TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT'."
-Brad Hodge in AN HONEST TUNE magazine - Various

He has co-written songs with JoJo Hermann, Jerry Joseph, James Calemine, David Barbe, and of course the last of the real rock stars, Eric Leigh Carter. He has variously recorded with Johnny Sandlin, Roger Hawkins and David Hood, John Keane, David Blackmon, William Tonks, John Neff, Bill McKay, John Mills, Paul "Crumpy" Edwards, David Barbe (six records and counting!), and too many others to mention.
