London based guitarist and singer songwriter Jack J Hutchinson’s Boom Boom Brotherhood have released their debut video.
Love Is Gonna Bring You Home, out on digital and physical formats 26 August, is the first track to be taken from their forthcoming album Set Your Heart For The Sun, due autumn 2016.
British Blues Awards nominated Hutchinson said: “The song started out as a delta blues song in the style of Charley Patton. But once the band (Rick Baxendale on bass and Jim Brazendale on drums) got hold of it and the Marshall stacks were wheeled out it took on a different vibe.”
Explaining the meaning of the song, Hutchinson said: “The lyrics are about responding to the negativity a particular person might bring to your life. Everyone has their demons but it is about focusing on those people that bring positivity.”
The track is the first to be released from the Boom Boom Brotherhood’s debut album. “We have 13 original songs, going from real heavy Southern rock with a Black Crowes and Led Zep feel to Allman Brothers style psychedelic blues jams. There was a conscious decision to put the electric guitar at the forefront of the record. So expect lots of solos! But the focus is always great melodies and catchy choruses. I’m a songwriter first and foremost.”
It’s certainly been a busy 18 months for Hutchinson. He was named ‘One to watch’ by Classic Rock Blues Mag last year, playlisted by BBC Radio 2, received two British Blues Awards nominations and played several hundred gigs across the UK.
“It’s been a real blast travelling around the country, meeting so many different people…and drinking my fair share of whisky! I’m hoping to gig in Europe early next year and then hopefully the States at some point. It’s about keeping our heads down and working hard. Let’s see where that takes us.”
Set Your Heart For The Sun will be released in autumn 2016.
