Singer-Songwriter Eric Hutchinson's new single, "Tell The World" - a track from Eric's latest album, Pure Fiction - jumped into the Top 10 of Amazon's MP3 Songs - Pop Singer-Songwriters chart after he performed it on NBC's "TODAY" in late November. The song is featured prominently in the Microsoft Windows 10 Global ad campaign. Pure Fiction debuted in the Top 10 on iTunes' overall albums chart upon its release.

The Wall Street Journal Speakeasy hailed "Tell The World" as "joyous" and the track was tapped as the theme song for NBC's "Growing Up Fisher." "A Little More," another song from Pure Fiction, was licensed by Netflix for a worldwide advertising campaign and performed live by Eric on an earlier appearance on "TODAY." Eric has also composed and recorded original theme songs for the ESPN Fantasy Focus podcast and the People In My Phone podcast with Dan Levy. "Rock & Roll," from his debut album, Sounds Like This, was selected as the theme song for "Packed to the Rafters," which was a No. 1 show in Australia and New Zealand.

"He's got chops...and his sunny lyrics reveal a wry double edge," said Esquire.com and AllMusic.com called Eric "a vibrant conduit for catchy, radio-ready pop." In addition to TODAY, he has performed on such shows as Conan, Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Eric is currently on tour across the east coast (see full list of dates here) with his last date at a sold-out hometown show at New York City's Rockwood Music Hall on December 30.

He spent the summer opening for GRAMMY Award winners Kelly Clarkson and Pentatonix on an extensive North American outing and will be joining Rachel Platten on her "Wild Fire" tour, which kicks off on February 26, 2016.

Tenacious, intelligent, and a triple threat talent, actress Caroline Sunshine has quickly become “one to watch” in the entertainment industry over the years from the captivating characters she has brought to life on screen. In 2015 Caroline can be seen starring as “Emily Jordan” in the “The Outfield” for Fullscreen Films. Now available on digital release nationwide [iTunes], the film, directed by Eli Gonda and Michael Goldfine, follows the story of high school baseball stars Frankie [Cameron Dallas], Jack [Nash Grier], and Austin [Joey Bragg], who seem to have their futures lined up and ready to go. However, senior year brings changes that make them all question what they’re truly meant to do with their lives. Caroline is a scene-stealer as Emily, the stubborn, loving, and protective girlfriend of Jack.

Born in Snellville, Georgia and raised in Orange County, California, Caroline grew up with a love for the arts, immersing herself in dance, film, television, and music. Her grandmother showed her all the old Hollywood classics, while Saturday morning movies with her dad were a regular occurrence.

Over the years leading up to high school Caroline trained professionally as a dancer [specifically in ballet], a talent that she would go on to use for the future film and TV projects.

2010 was a breakout year for Caroline, she made her feature film debut with a supporting role as “Barbara Winslow” in Twentieth Century Fox’s “Marmaduke” alongside Judy Greer, Lee Pace, Owen Wilson, Emma Stone, and George Lopez, to name a few. She went on to land a lead role in then Disney Channel Original Series “Shake It Up,” which became an international sensation from 2010-13. Caroline’s performance as “Tinka Hessenheffer” was hailed as “the best performance on the show” by People Magazine critic Tom Giliatto. While working on “Shake It Up” helped Caroline hone in on her comedic timing [she also used an Eastern European accent in every episode], she also had the opportunity to showcase her talents in singing and dancing, even collaborating on some of the albums the show produced.

Once wrapping “Shake It Up” Caroline made the decision to go to college, and she is currently a sophomore at Claremont McKenna College studying International Relations and Economics. While juggling film and television projects, Caroline works at the Mgrublian Center for Human Rights, she is on the Model United Nations Team [ranked #1 on the west coast and #6 in the nation] and she writes for the campus magazine The Vanguard, which focuses on technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. She hopes that she can be a strong role model for women of all ages, that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.

On the charity front, Caroline loves to spend time working with a handful of organizations, including: The Starkey Hearing Foundation, and she is a graduate of the National Charity League. In her down time you can find her traveling, surfing, and wake boarding- or participating in adrenaline filled activities like skydiving and bungee jumping.

Caroline currently lives in the Los Angeles area.
