JPR Live Session: Christian Lee Hutson
On the new album Beginners, Christian Lee Hutson displays a rare combination of brilliantly intricate fingerpicked guitar lines and evocative stories that illuminate the everyday characters and events of life.
Hutson got started making music as a teenager, and early releases were heavily influenced by both the Carter Family and 80s pop music. As he's grown and developed, his unique style of songwriting has garnered him some well-known fans, including fellow musician Phoebe Bridgers, who signed on to produce Hutson's new record.
He joined us from his house in Los Angeles for a discussion of how he's getting through the pandemic, and played a few beautiful tunes from his new record.
