Let It Ride is #8 on the Top 10!
Brian Hutson is a radio-charting recording artist known for his rich and powerful voice. Raised in New York’s Hudson Valley and currently residing in New York City, Brian leads a double life: investment banker by day – and crooner when off Wall Street. His broad range of vocal repertoires includes pop, easy listening, jazz, Broadway, opera, and classical.
Brian’s passion for singing was sparked at age 12 as a member of his school choir, where he progressed to select and regional choirs as well as adjudicated solo singing. He also took the stage in local and school musical theater productions.
While pursuing an undergraduate degree in Economics, Brian set his sights on learning opera and classical music repertoires. He began private vocal lessons to develop his craft, and while juggling his studies and internships, began to perform at open mic nights and cafes as well as recitals and church services.
After graduation, Brian began working on Wall Street, balancing the demands of his job with time for his creative outlet – singing and songwriting.
While singing Michael Bublé’s Everything at his office holiday party, Brian was discovered by renowned music producer, Joe Vulpis. Vulpis immediately took Hutson into the studio and recorded their first two original singles, Let It Ride and She’s My Woman. Released to radio in Summer 2015, Let It Ride debuted at number 48 on the Adult Contemporary Top 200, peaking at number 5. It remained in the Top 10 of the AC Top 200 chart for 10 weeks and was played on steady rotation in 6 countries in Europe.
Vulpis and Hutson finished off the year by bringing a fresh, bluesy sound to the popular holiday song, Blue Christmas (originally recorded by Elvis Presley). The single could be heard on SiriusXM and many major market Billboard radio stations across the country throughout the holiday season.
Brian is currently recording an EP slated for release in early 2017.
