Jack J Hutchinson is a British blues guitarist. Described by Blues In Britain as “everything that is so good about modern blues music”, his new EP ‘Get It Back’ was released in summer 2014 to universal acclaim.
His band consists of Rick Baxendale on bass, Jim Brazendale on drums and Tom Brundage on harmonica.
Hutchinson was born in 1982 in Leicester, spending his formative years in the north west before moving to London in 2005. He has been gigging and recording for the best part of 18 years, sharing the stage with some of the best known blues musicians around today including supporting Ian Siegal, Big Boy Bloater, Zoe Schwarz and Ron Sayer, whilst also doing high profile session work at Universal and Miloco Studios London. He is also regularly part of the house band at London’s famous Ain’t Nothin’ But blues bar.
His single ‘If You Let Me Love You’ – a cover of the BB King classic – was named in British Blues Award judge Dave Watkins’ top 5 singles of 2013, whilst his last solo album ‘Feathers and Fools’ was released to critical acclaim.
Hutchinson’s new EP ‘Get It Back’ was released in July 2014 with a launch gig at London’s famous 100 Club. The record reached number 25 in the IBBA blues top 40, receiving critical acclaim from publications including Blues In Britain and Blues Matters magazine.

“Every now and then I hear a song that makes me sit up and listen, and the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. That’s what happened when I heard Jack J Hutchinson’s new single If You Let Me Love You” – Clive Rawlings (IBBA DJ and writer for Blues Matters! Magazine)
“A rip-roaring piece of work led by Hutchinson’s fine guitar work and scorching vocals” (Wasser-Prawda Magazine)
“Hutchinson exists as a simultaneous echo of the past and glimpse into the future. With modern jam band revivals forcefully popping up in both the U.S. and the UK, Hutchinson’s ability to alternate between singer/songwriter and adaptable session player gives him an edge over other artists struggling to latch permanent tags to their work.” (Blues Rock Review)
