The Baltimore Sun

Hometown -- Takoma Park

Current members --Eric Hutchinson, vocals, guitar and keyboards

Founded in --2002

Style --acoustic soul

Influenced by --Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elvis Costello

Notable --Hutchinson's full-length debut, Sounds Like This, was recorded and self-released this year. He was signed to Maverick, but the label folded. As a result, Hutchinson ended up with enough money to record the album and the rights to his own songs: a win-win situation.

Quotable --"It's all worked out," he said. "I feel like I'm in a good place. I don't want to make a deal when I can still have the power and freedom I have being an independent artist."

Hear Eric Hutchinson tomorrow at Fletchers, 701 S. Bond St. Doors open at 8 p.m. $10. Go to The band:
