Fifteen years of leading one of Australia’s most consistently creative and critically acclaimed rock bands, Bluebottle Kiss, saw Jamie Hutchings write and release over 130 songs. During that time the band relentlessly toured the country, the US and Europe playing with bands as diverse as Beck, Midnight Oil and Dinosaur Jr. With His Imaginary Choir, Hutchings releases his second solo album, an amazing collection of concise narrative driven songs inspired by amongst other things, the exotica movement of the sixties and the singer/songwriter movement of the early seventies.
Co-produced by Jamie and Tony Dupe (Holly Throsby, Jack Ladder, Saddleback etc), His Imaginary Chior is an exercise in using simple yet alien arrangments and minimal studio resources to create a domestic yet amazingly rich sound.
