Christian Lee Hutson, 24-year-old Nashville-via-Los Angeles roots singer-songwriter, has released a video for his song “Dirty Little Cheat” from his David Mayfield produced album “Yeah Okay, I Know” (Trailer Fire Records)
“Dirty Little Cheat” is a moody glitch-folk gem, or “bummer-core” as Hutson describes his sound, and the shadowy dark-hued video that reflects it fits its alienated dark heart perfectly.
Of the video’s production Hutson says “I met (director) Matt McCormack (Mack Productions) at the Valley of the Vapors festival in Hot Springs, AR after hearing of him through a mutual friend who had shown me some of his work. I asked if he’d be interested in making something for this song that was really precious to me and he pitched me this wonderful idea that plays exactly how he imagined it with his beautiful sister, Anna McCormack, who plays the bane of my existence.
We had a window of roughly 5 hours to shoot it, as I was in the middle of a tour that brought me through Hot Springs and had to drive to Fort Worth the following morning. I think my show wrapped up at 1 am so we must’ve shot the whole thing between 2 am and 7 am, at which point I hit the road. ”
Hutson has been touring throughout the year in support of his upcoming sophomore full-length release, Yeah Okay, I Know (Trailer Fire Records), including a Daytrotter session and an appearance in April at Communion Nashville, a monthly club night curated by Mumford and Sons’ Ben Lovett, sharing a bill with Johnny Stimson and Sturgill Simpson.
Hutson, who has shared many a stage with notable performers like Damien Jurado, Ralph Stanley and Father John Misty, worked with Grammy-nominated producer David Mayfield on the new album which you can buy from the link below.
