Hello,
I wanted to be the first to type a little note about my album 'Independently Blue'. It's probably considered "not very cool" to do so but i felt that an introduction was needed. I took out a loan and recorded this album in January of last year in Seven days. I gathered friends and musicians into the studio and recorded it pretty much live. It turned out to be the most fun and creative week of my life. The plan was to sell it at my gigs and via my website. Since then, my little organic self-funded album is beginning to take on a life of its own. More people are hearing it than i'd ever expected and it's even been playlisted on BBC Radio 2 to my surprise. It is now being re-released through the independent label Gut Records. I've given it 5 stars as i'm obviously bias but mostly because i'm proud of it and proud of the people who helped me create it. This album is an introduction and i'd love to have the opportunity to record many more in the future. I hope you enjoy the album for what it is and what it becomes for you.

Taking the title of the album from a lyric by Nina Simone, York-based singer-songwriter Hayley Hutchinson scatters a handful of impressive influences across her debut album that is both intensely personal and pleasingly accessible.
Not to be lumped into the same category as Dido, Norah Jones, Katie Melua et al, Hayley sits more comfortably with the likes of Joni Mitchell, Alison Krauss and Mary Hopkin with a hint of The Sundays' Harriet Wheeler; at once frail and vulnerable yet accomplished and powerful, and with an identity all her own.
'Independently Blue' is alternately upbeat and melancholy, toe-tapping and bluesy with absolutely no filler. All the tracks are standouts; half of them are warmingly happy and summery ('Deadman', a cracking opener punctuated by handclaps, 'Minor Key' and the title track to name three), the other half achingly heartfelt ('Climb Through', 'I Have To Say I Love You', 'Hands'). That's without mentioning the blinding single 'Here's The Love' and the utterly addictive 'Wicked Thoughts', a stunning ode to misplaced love, with the most surprising and delighting finale. Try not singing along with that one...
Wonderfully produced by Shed Seven's Fraser Smith, and with guest musicians including Seahorses' Chris Helme, this album rewards the listener time and time again. The absolute must-buy of 2005 from a rising star.

When I first heard this CD I was completely blown away. It took me back to some of the sounds and feelings of my earlier days (The Sundays, Joni Mitchell, Wilco, Natalie Merchant, Loretta Lyn, and rhythms of Crosby, Stills, and Nash).
Hayley Hutchinson's independent debut album has the hallmark of true success. The album begins with an upbeat Sheryl Crow (esq) 'Deadman'. Hayley's voice is angelic, strong, organic, and passionate; it's a voice that makes you feel something. That is the point of art, music, poetry...you need to be stopped and experience a feeling.
All the songs flow gently from the minute you press play on your CD player, however a few stick out, 'Independently Blue', 'Here's The Love', and 'Wicked Thoughts.' The song and title of the album, 'Independently Blue', create a wonderful paradox that wraps my mind up with thoughts of what I have done and what I will do. I urge you to add Independently Blue to your CD collection.

I first came across this CD last summer (2004) and was instantly captivated by it. Not for a long time have I heard such haunting vocals mixed with inspirational song writing. It made me both remember my past but also look forward with hope to the future. If artists like Hayley Hutchinson continue to produce music like this then I will be happy to be part of this world.
'Deadman' creeps into your soul and gives it a damn good shaking, whereas 'Here is the Love' lifts you from your worst ever doldrum to the highest of highs in the flick of your fingers. This girl has got everything. You can't go wrong. I dare you not to fall in love with this CD and this girl.
