Christian Lee Hutson

The self-proclaimed “King of Bummercore,” seasoned Nashville-based songwriter Christian Lee Hutson is at the tail end of a U.S. tour in support of Yeah Okay, I Know, his intricate, imaginative second full-length for the Trailer Fire imprint. Hutson’s literate brand of tattered-sleeve confessionalism is a throwback to folk music’s less-is-more roots, a reminder that the form can still be plenty ferocious in the right singer-songwriter’s hands. But Hutson is no mere acolyte; occasional flourishes of glitchy electronica set Yeah Okay apart from the pack. Quiet, determined and assured, Hutson’s latest LP is a welcome alternative to the empty, bombastic stomp-and-shout Americana so prevalent on the FM dial these days.
