Album Review: Modern Happiness by Eric Hutchinson (8/10)

The platinum-selling artist continues his blend of soul-pop, rock and rootsy stylings with lyrical themes built around songs about one’s search for purpose, contentment and meaning. Hutchinson sings in a deceptively upbeat and evocative manner about his struggles with depression and appreciating life’s wonders on “Miracle Worker.” “She Could Be the One” is a strong single as is the bluesy and Randy Newman-esque “New Religion.” After a few years navigating the music biz, Hutchinson admits he was ready to quit. But, thankfully, he came to his senses and the result is one of his most personal and inspired works to date.

Rating: 8/10
