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.

Hutchinson's EP 'Get It Back' was released in July 2014 with a launch gig at London's famous 100 Club.

«Tough, immediate rockin' blues (Classic Rock Blues Magazine)
»Everything that is so good about modern blues music" (Blues in Britain 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)
Louder Still are a young Rock band formed in 2016 but forged from love of the great British rock giants. Their songs have amazing melodies, searing vocals, heart-stopping riffs and all based on the granite foundations of an incredible pulsating rhythm section. Louder Still have somehow pulled off a neat trick in making the music sound 21st century and vital.
«Having already notched up live performances at Rocklahoma, as well as supporting Lita Ford and L.A. Guns, this band is doing it old school by creating excitement before the full album release in Early 2018.If bands like Louder Still are the future of British rock… then USA watch out!!! I think we have another NWOBHM coming our way. Decibel Geek readers and listeners, keep an eye out for more singles by Louder Still. These guys rock!» — Decibelgeek
The Project started in 2006 with the goal to recreate, at least initially, the spirit and sound of the 80's rock'n'roll. In 2007 the band decides to lock theirselves up in the studio to stretch
their initial ideas and come up with six new songs that will be part of the homonymous LP «Fireyed» the album is not yet ripe but already shows the insights that would later bring the band to a more contemporary sound but always full of the spirit that characterizes the taste of the rock'n'roll quintet.
The band has performed with some known names in the Italian and European rock scene, such as Jaded Heart, Rezophonic, Mike Terrana, Pino Scotto and others.
First full length album, «From The Ground Floor», a product that celebrates the band in terms of a new sound, pulling away from the initial hard rock stereotypes that are replaced by a ripe sound and reflects disillusioned anger built-up over time.
Toured with Tygers Of Pan Tang, historical formation of the NWBOHM scene in the beginning of the eighties. The consecration comes, Fireyed acquire the popularity and reputation in UK and returning to their country they are noticed by the label «HOS Records» that produces «From The Ground Floor» launching it in the worldwide rock market.
