Mankato, Minn. – National recording artist Eric Hutchinson (pictured right) will perform in concert at Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Myers Field House on Monday, Sept. 24 at 8:30 p.m. as part of “2012 Homecoming: Stomp the Yard” activities. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $12 for the general public and free for Minnesota State Mankato students.

Hutchinson is performing on the Minnesota State Mankato campus to support the release of his new album, “Moving Up Living Down.”

Hutchinson and his music bear a playful confidence. As the Washington, D.C.-raised singer, pianist and guitarist has traveled the world over the course of several years, word of mouth about his music and engaging presence brought consistently growing concert crowds. His song “Rock & Roll” turned into an international hit (certified gold in the U.S., Platinum in New Zealand, Norway and Australia) and his first album, “Sounds Like This” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, ultimately selling more than 250,000 copies. The songs “Ok, It’s Alright With Me” (top 5 on AAA radio) and “Oh!” also caught fire, helping push total single sales past the million mark.

Hutchinson’s recent single, “Watching You Watch Him” is currently number 20 on the Adult Pop charts and is still climbing. For more information on Eric Hutchinson, visit his website at www.erichutchinson.com.
