Poetic Vinyl EP to Benefit Tiny Changes Charity

"All Is Not Lost" Limited Edition EP To Be Released This Winter In Honor of the Late Scott Hutchison

The passing of Scott Hutchison last year hit hard on many levels, extending past his absence from a musical standpoint. He was a profound presence in people’s lives, and that we don’t get to hear a new song or album of his is just one of the many reasons he is dearly missed. 

But the good thing that emerges is that Hutchison’s music and influence live on strongly through the many people he impacted. There were the unforgettable tribute shows last year including one at Rough Trade, Brooklyn where contemporaries he inspired performed his songs – and there are recordings of those special nights. Furthermore, the discussion about mental health amongst musicians and fans has opened up and the Tiny Changes charity was founded by Hutchison’s family in the wake of his death with that very purpose at its heart.

The latest invocation of Hutchison’s persisting creative spirit is coming in a limited edition vinyl EP to benefit the Tiny Changes charity. All Is Not Lost is a pair of resonant recordings of poems to music–one a vocal variation of a Robert Burns classic sung by Laurie Cameron, and the other an original from poet Francis Daulerio, who organized the project with The Head & The Hand Press. His work “I Want To Call This Poem Hope,” is recited with musical arrangements by Inletts, the collaborative project from musician/producer Jeff Zeigler and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Schimeneck. Both recordings were created in honor of Hutchison, and all of the proceeds are being donated to Tiny Changes. 

From the press release: Laurie Cameron’s “Honest Man” is a reworking of Robert Burns’ poem “On My Own Friend And My Father's Friend, Wm. Muir in Tarbolton Mill,” which was first released in the wake of Hutchison’s death to fundraise for the Scottish Association for Mental Health. Cameron and bandmate Ross Lorimer performed the song in Brooklyn last November during Daulerio’s American Foundation for Suicide Prevention benefit tour, Shouts Against The Darkness. 

“I Want To Call This Poem Hope” was written for, and first performed at a Philadelphia tribute to Hutchison at Johnny Brenda’s, a venue Frightened Rabbit played on one of their earlier tours through the States. It was first published by Pidgeonholes Magazine, and is slated to appear in his next full-length collection of poetry. 

All Is Not Lost will be released this winter on 140 gram vinyl and is limited to 500 copies. Cameron and Daulerio will hold a launch event at Edinburgh’s Netherbow Theatre on December 22, 2019.
