ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jeff is a man of many talents who has squandered most of them. He has lived 59 years against all odds, thanks primarily to the good sense of his wife of 36 years, Diane, and their daughters Rachel and Nell. He is an author, speaker, and frequent world traveler, who was raised in Saudi Arabia from age 6 to 18. He attended high school in Beirut, Lebanon. For more details, visit www.jeffhutchins.com.

He wrote these 12 songs at different times in his life. Each song tells a different story. The title track is produced in two versions: the general version (Track One) and a special version for the “Aramco Brats” with whom he grew up. Jeff coaxed Liz Berlin of Rusted Root fame into doing lead vocal for “No Shame,” a song inspired by a young mother’s struggle to resolve her failing marriage.

Korel Tunador, keyboardist and guitarist for the Goo Goo Dolls, sings “Churchill,” a sort of paint-by-numbers protest song. Jeff himself sings all the other songs, which range from a Celtic sea chantey about an Italian volcano, to the folk-rock anthem “Woodchuck Farm.” “Topper’s Bar” resurrects the late great Topper Carew, one of the first African-American TV producers for PBS, and “The Ballad of Rockhead and Ruby” tells the fictional story of redemption of an escaped convict and the woman he loves.

Several of the songs feature the Goo Goo Dolls’ Mike Malinin on drums, and there are also appearances by other instrumentalists and back-up singers.

Jeff promises two things: there are songs here you will fall in love with, and there are songs you will never want to hear again. For each person, that will mean different songs. He wants to hear from you, so visit his website and tell him what you think.
