Eric Hutchinson EP Coming

On December 15th, Warner Bros. Records will release Sounds Like This Live 2, an EP featuring stripped-down versions of five songs from Eric Hutchinson's full-length debut, Sounds Like This, which entered Billboard's Heatseekers chart at No. 1 in September of 2007. More than two years later, Sounds Like This is the second best-selling album on the Heatseekers chart. Sounds Like This Live 2 follows Hutchinson's Sounds Like This Live EP, which features live versions of five different songs and was released in April of 2009.

"I wanted to continue the approach I had on the first EP, getting the songs back to their purest form the way they were when I wrote them," he explains. "We had a day off in Minneapolis so I went into a studio and played through the songs in one take."

"OK, It's Alright With Me," a Top 5 hit at Triple A radio earlier this year, is now climbing the charts at the Hot AC format, where it's already #31* after only a month. Hutchinson joins Gavin Rossdale, David Cook and Lady GaGa in the short list of new artists to have a second single chart at Hot AC in 2009.

Hutchinson has played over 400 shows since the release of Sounds Like This. In December, he'll wrap up a three-month North American tour with Kelly Clarkson. While spending the holidays in his hometown of Takoma Park, MD, he'll play a special acoustic show at an intimate venue he's played numerous times before Jammin' Java in nearby Vienna, VA.

In 2010, Hutchinson will open for Clarkson in Australia and New Zealand, where his first single, "Rock & Roll," went platinum and hit No. 1 at Pop radio earlier this year. "Rock & Roll" topped the Triple A radio chart in the U.S. last December, where Hutchinson was the only new artist to score a No. 1 hit at the format in 2008. "Oh!," his latest single, is now climbing the charts at Triple A radio.

The track listing for Sounds Like This Live 2 is as follows:

1. Ok, It's Alright With Me
2. Outside Villanova
3. Food Chain
4. You Don't Have to Believe Me
5. It Hasn't Been Long Enough
