Biography

Enigmatic songwriter and front man for Bluebottle Kiss, Jamie Hutchings is also a solo artist and producer. The son of professional jazz musician, Jamie was born, grew up and continues to live in Sydney, Australia.

Fifteen years of leading one of Australia’s most consistently creative and critically acclaimed rock bands, Bluebottle Kiss, saw Jamie Hutchings write and release over 130 songs. During that time the band relentlessly toured the country, the US and Europe playing with bands as diverse as Beck, Midnight Oil and Dinosaur Jr .With His Imaginary Choir, Hutchings releases his second solo album, an amazing collection of concise narrative driven songs inspired by amongst other things, the exotica movement of the sixties and the singer/songwriter movement of the early seventies.

Since beginning his career in the early nineties on Sony’s Murmur with Something for Kate and Jebidiah, it was clear that Jamie’s musical ambitions did not fit cleanly into the defined parameters of contemporary rock. Instead Bluebottle Kiss relentlessly explored genres ranging from jazz to country at the same time as developing a reputation for ferociously intense live shows honed from endlessly touring Australia the US and Europe.

However as an antidote to Bluebottle Kiss’ sprawling, epic double CD of 2006, Doubt Seeds, Jamie’s insatiable curiousity turned not to further exploration but to constraints with his latest release ‘His Imaginary Choir’.
