Sutton's debut album, "Long, Long Time", features an artful combination of three original compositions and six popular cover songs. An arrangement of folk tune "So Says the Whippoorwill" makes a sweet centerpiece to the album. The covers highlight forty years of popular music, tying an original knot with the acoustic folk style of Joni Mitchell and the ambient sound and world music blend of Peter Gabriel.
"Long, Long Time" showcases the intricacies of Sutton's vocals, which range from ethereal to emotionally laden, often resulting in a surprising blend of these natural opposites. Recorded at Kung Fu Bakery Recording Studios and produced by venerated guitarist/composer Tim Ellis (Craig Carothers), the project was engineered by Steve Sundholm (Lady Antebellum & Jim Brickman), Dean Baskerville (Sheryl Crow, Pink Martini) and Bob Stark (Everclear & Esperanza Spalding). Sundholm also mixed and mastered the album, which helped unify the challenges of such a versatile project.
