Pop Matters reviews Christian Lee Hutson’s album ‘Yeah Okay, I Know’

Pop Matters reviews Christian Lee Hutson‘s sophomore full-length Yeah Okay, I Know, out now on CD, vinyl and digital formats on Trailer Fire Records.

A quiet confidence exudes from Hutson’s grit-tinged vocal as he handles the miniature journey crafted by the rollicking folk-influenced opener…In the two years since his debut album, he has become more relaxed in his skin as an artist…The album has shown remarkable growth for Hutson, especially in the line of production and crafting his own muted instrumental atmosphere.
