FRESH: ‘Too Late’ – Robbie Hutton

Robbie Hutton says it’s “Too Late”.

by Christopher Smith

“It’s about the pain of love. Sometimes, the longer you try to make it work, the harder it all becomes. That’s the way it goes with some relationships: Eventually, it all falls to pieces and you both go your separate ways. It may well be for the best, but you are still heartbroken. And, really, that’s the mood I wanted to try and capture with Too Late. It is all about that stage where you are together and trying your best to keep it going, but it’s slowly coming apart and you both know it. It’s not drawn from any single experience but a bit of an amalgam. But I’m sure there will be people out there who have been through something similar and can relate”.

A shining example of modern independent songwriting, Robbie Hutton has carved his unique sound from a mixture of soulful pop and ballad-driven rock. Reaching back into his own experiences to create modern tales of heartbreak, catharsis and loss, the Stirling man possesses a classic grasp of storytelling so often neglected today. With a diverse catalogue and an impressive vocal range, the 25-year-old has the capacity to reach a huge range of audiences, with each song bringing something different to the table.

For Robbie, 2019 has been a massive year with no less than three single releases – all featuring top-quality music videos – and a number of high-profile shows across the country, including the Sing on the Bing and Sruighlea festivals. This follows on from solo dates at King Tut’s, The Clutha, PJ Molloy’s and more. His latest singles “Waves”, “Battlefield” and “Too Late”, have all been well-received, with more new material scheduled for release early in 2020, to bolster more expansive live shows. “It’s all about continuing to push yourself,” the singer insists. “I’m not interested in staying still. I’m as keen to guide my music as much as I want to simply see where it takes me”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
