#4 Singing not the first choice of Scott Hutchinson.
In his initial career Scott Hutchinson considered himself purely as a guitarist and did not start singing until his late teens. He was primarily a song writer and his writing inspirations were American musicians Ryan Adams, Wilco and Laura Cantrell. In one of his interviews he had said that he distinctly feels that there is some close connection between Scottish music and American music.
#5 He went to Glasgow School of Art to study Illustration.
Scott Hutchinson never considered of pursuing music until graduation. It was only after his school that he considered to pursue music as his career. Besides the songs, all the artwork of any Frightened Rabbit release was done by him alone.
The sudden demise of the musician has left his friends and family in a deep state of shock. Our thoughts are with the family and prayers to God to give them strength to bear the loss. You can leave your prayers in the comment section here.
