Brian Butler


I call my music style rockjazz. I am an improvisationist, although the music sounds like normally written music. Being improvised however, it is unusually live sounding, sincere and "present".


My influences are rock artists Clapton and Hendrix, jazz artists Wes Montgomery and Chet Atkins. I spent years playing Motown, then rock, before turning to complete improvisation. My live performances are totally improvised, and my recordings are largely improvised with often an extreme minimum of rehearsal to prevent mistakes.


I have a recent CD and 47 other downloadable singles all of which will be ready for distribution by Christmas, 2006.

Set List

As an improvisationist, I use two Boss loop stations and do 30 minute sets. I make up everything I play while I'm playing it.
