Ozark Hutch, aka Will Hutchinson, is a 28-year-old singer/songwriter from Lincoln, Nebraska. His songs are filled with stories both historical and autobiographical. His stripped down instrumentation and vocal approach allows him to be more vulnerable on stage and nimble on the road.
Inspired by artists of his father's youth, Will grew up listening to artists like Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Elvis. The influences of his origins shine through in his simple song structures, catchy melodies and clear lyrical imagery. Since beginning to write music in 2005, Will has written dozens of songs, released three studio albums and was named a finalist in the International John Lennon Songwriting Competition, which drew more than 25,000 contestants.
