Tonight’s free foyer performance is from Emma Hutchinson

After a 10 year period focusing on other projects such as her pop choir, ChoirJam, Bristol-based soul-jazz singer/songwriter and guitarist Emma Hutchinson re-emerged last year with her third album, “Coming Home”.  Citing influences as broad as Roxy Music, James Taylor, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder and Bacharach & David – as well as the great jazz composers and lyricists – it’s easy to see why her new material continues to be such an eclectic mix:  “I’m fascinated by writing songs about people – real or imagined – and exploring the situations they find themselves in.  I like the lyrics to drive the melody – not the other way around.  You get more surprises that way.” 

 On “Coming Home”, “Waiting” is a grooving bluesy funk about being strung along by an indecisive lover; the optimistic soul-jazz of “A Great Year” is Bill Withers-inspired, and the emotive jazz ballad “Coming Home” tells the story of a WWII soldier’s apprehension on returning home after peace is declared.

Featuring the incomparable Ruth Hammond on keyboards/bass, guitarist Andy Christie and Andy Tween on drums, expect bittersweet soul, swinging jazz and rocky blues.
