HUTCH's thoughts on the recording process of the album: "The recording process for "Romance & Melodrama" was a steep learning curve for me. Myself and Shayne Byrne (producer/collaborator) worked using a great programme called Splice, which works via Ableton. We shared files back & forth, from my home studio in Derry, and Shayne's studio in Carlow respectively. Early in the process we decided to work under the principle of treating each song as a single, working to get the best out of each song until we were both satisfied that we had done everything we could to get all we could out of them, in terms of performance, arrangement and production. I knew that the songs were strong and I believe in each of them totally. I can only hope that the listener gets something out of them, and can connect with them, both individually, and as a complete piece."

Bio

HUTCH is a singer/songwriter based in Derry. He has been playing and recording his own songs since 2009, in pubs, clubs, cafés radio studios, theatres, festivals, and various dark corners round the country. His style has been compared to the likes of Glen Hansard, Nick Drake and Elliott Smith. His first single, "You'll Never Change" is set for release on 20th March 2020.

"

I feel like "Lost a Friend" was the turning point for the album in general. Before we started working on it, I felt like the song was a quiet, folky sort of "album track", and that "Whatever Works" was the natural second single. But what began to happen as myself and Shayne (Byrne: producer/collaborator) started recording and arranging the track was we realised that "Lost a Friend" was a strong potential single, as we both accentuated the shift between verse and chorus, and worked to get the best out of the song that we possibly could. What myself and Shayne were able to do with the recording is one of my proudest achievements."

The recording process was somewhat unconventional, collaborating online with Carlow-based producer Shayne Byrne of Ragged Company Recordings, as HUTCH explains:

"The recording process for "Romance & Melodrama" was a steep learning curve for me. Myself and Shayne Byrne (producer/collaborator) worked using a great program called Splice, working via Ableton. We shared files back&forth, from my home studio in Derry, and Shayne's studio in Carlow respectively. Early in the process we decided to work under the principal of treating each song as a single, working to get the best out of each song until we were both satisfied that we had done everything we could to get all we could out of them, in terms of performance, arrangement and production. I knew that the songs were strong and I believe in each of them totally. I can only hope that the listener gets something out of them, and can connect with them, both individually, and as a complete piece."

With  his debut album due Romance & Melodrama due for release in May, and a gigging roster that kicks off with release-day show in The Diplomat, Derry, 2020 is set to be a big year for HUTCH.
