ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
How Many Miles is an intimate collection of live recordings spanning fifteen years of Hutchinson's career. Together with audio engineer Keith Richardson, Meg chose thirty-two songs and three poems that tell the story of some of the most challenging and beautiful years of her life.

Hutchinson is a nationally touring songwriter, poet and recording artist on Red House Records. She has released nine albums and won numerous songwriting awards in the US, Ireland and the UK, including recognition from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Billboard Song Contest and prestigious competitions at Merlefest, NewSong, Kerrville, Telluride and Rocky Mountain.

She has been described as delivering "Music as powerful as it is gentle." Performer Magazine writes, "With a poet's eye, Hutchinson captures so beautifully that human journey toward peace, toward forgiveness, toward acceptance."

In recent years, as a result of the messages in her songwriting and her dedication to mental health literacy, Meg has increasingly been asked to be a keynote speaker at universities, conferences and teaching hospitals around the country. This year Meg joined the Active Minds Speakers Bureau – working to change the conversation about mental health at colleges nationwide.

Hutchinson artfully documents the human condition. With a poet’s ease, she makes the personal universal, allowing people’s stories to come alive through her unique vocals and haunting melodies. Since the release of her Red House Records debut COME UP FULL in 2008, she has won high praise for her songwriting and has been featured nationally on NPR Music, XM/Sirius Radio and several times on the syndicated show Mountain Stage. Publications like The Winnipeg Free Press have compared her songwriting with that of Mary Chapin Carpenter and Joni Mitchell.

Growing up in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, the woods and rivers were her childhood muses, as were songwriters like Greg Brown and Joni Mitchell, and poets like Mary Oliver and William Stafford. "I grew up in the country without a TV or internet," Hutchinson says. "There were so many quiet hours in the day– so many spaces between events. That stillness and intimacy with nature have been formative in my life."
