His crooning style was well received by listeners and he became known as "The Boy Wonder of Trinidad and Tobago." He gained fame for his Christmas recordings "Kiss Me for Christmas," composed by local songwriter Pat Castagne, and "I Wish I Were a Child Again," composed by Stephen Ferreira. He performed in the USA three times: twice at Carnegie Hall, New York, and once at the Miami Arena in Florida. Hutcheon maintained a full-time job as a pharmaceutical executive and only sang as a hobby. Nevertheless, he remained popular in Trinidad for over 60 years and recorded many songs, including the following:
    • The Very Thought of You; Mona Lisa; Someone to Watch Over Me; Quiet Nights; Christmas in T&T; I'll Be Home for Christmas; At Christmas Your Heart Goes Home (Everald Leon); Happy New Year (Pat Castagne)

                                                                 In 2004, his CD "In the Name of Love" was released and included "What a Wonderful World," "S'Wonderful," "They Can't Take That Away from Me," "Love Letters," and "As Time Goes By."
