Artists Without Labels

My mission is to assist songwriters and recording artists of any genre that otherwise might not have access to the beauty of great music production or assets like live horns or horn solos at their disposal to add additional live and electronic instruments to digitally based music recordings. If you are looking for interesting music and unique music or horn arrangements for your next album, film or video, I can provide it.

I have a unique sound and creative input for any project I’m a part of. My goal is to find unique one of a kind multimedia projects where I can use my skills and knowledge to collaborate and create interesting new music, film, and television media; commercial or experimental.

I have played saxophone for many years with many diverse music groups and I’m good at creating interesting horn lines and solos that fit a song or genre with full collaboration to your song, website, video or life in general. (See Discography)

Email me your song, image, video or idea at collaborate@thomashutchings.com and I will join forces with you to create a horn line or solo or music to fit the piece of work you have provided and will email you the solo track for your acceptance & approval. I’ll only take work if I’m sure I can add something worthwhile.

I can also create exciting and interesting music arrangements from existing vocals and/or accompaniment parts with any amount of collaboration.
