2012 album from the Washington, DC-raised singer, pianist and guitarist. On Moving Up Living Down, all of Eric's ever-widening musical embraces are brought into play, from the exuberant Folk-Pop bounce of "Watching You Watch Him" through the Reggae lilt of opener "Talk is Cheap" through the Soul grounding of "The Basement." The music is tuneful and rhythmic. The lyrics are engaging and reflective. Comparisons, as always, are tough, but you wouldn’t go wrong thinking of a spectrum that includes Paul Simon, the Beatles and Stevie Wonder, all integrated into a truly Hutchinsonian whole. Produced by Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Regina Spektor) and Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, James Morrison).
