Roots-influenced artist Caleb Lee Hutchinson has released his debut full-length studio album Southern Galactic following previous EPs. Southern Galactic was heralded by the releases of  “I Miss You”  “Silverado” and “Good at Being Bad.” Hutchinson has described it as a sampling of “Country music from space.”

Since putting out his self-titled EP in 2019, the Georgia native has always grounded his creative process in brutal honesty and deep story-telling. With Hutchinson’s new project, Southern Galactic, he breaks new ground while continuing to honor the honesty and storytelling that made him love Country music.

Much of the album’s new sound Hutchinson attributes to its producer, Titanic Sinclair. Sinclair, an artist and songwriter himself, brought his deep and eclectic musical toolbox to the making of the record. Hutchinson had been a fan of Sinclair’s music for a number of years and was drawn to Sinclair’s “gritty sound and online persona.”

The new music ranges from accents of classic spaghetti westerns to DIY Indie Garage Rock, and 80’s synth-bathed Electronica and shows Hutchinson evolving and taking risks which pay off in exciting music.
