Feeling a bit camera shy


It’s been 2 years filled with immeasurable hard work and a roller coaster ride of sky-rocketing triumphs and accomplishments...... all from an independent band who is realizing its goal of having people hear its music on a global level.

Butterfinger released its much-anticipated self-titled CD in October, 2002 to a sold-out audience, capitalizing on the momentum of the bands’ award-winning song, “Breathe.” It was “Breathe” that won the band the national song-writing award in 2001, jet-setting the four off to Toronto for Canadian Music Week. That award led to heavy airplay in Western Canada, exploding to become the most-requested song in Saskatoon for several weeks. The monstrous success of “Breathe” led the band to embark on a full-length album that would eventually take them to Calgary, Toronto and Los Angeles, California.

Butterfinger enlisted the help of established producer Jared Kuemper (Sheryl Crow, Tegan and Sara, the Moffats) for an album that would take over a year to perfect. It was with Jared’s profes-sional blend of unique hooks, fresh effects and upbeat tempos where Butterfinger’s sound was molded and polished, pushing the band to become a major player in not only Canadian, but in the American and European music markets.

Butterfinger’s first single, “Fall”, dominated radio stations across Canada and the United States within days of its release, bringing the question to many program directors’ minds “WHO ARE THESE GUYS?”. “Fall” was immediately cited by Canadian Music Network Magazine and Galaxy Network as an “Independent Release Success Story”. The song was then selected by Canadian Music Network as a “Hot Pick” on its compilation CD, raising its profile even higher in the industry.

“Fall” reached Number 1 on several radio charts for 5 weeks in a row and after 7 months continues to maintain its popularity in dozens of radio markets. The success story of “Fall” has not been limited to Canada. Butterfinger’s accomplishments were highlighted at music industry conferences such as New Music West (Vancouver), Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Taxi Road Rally Convention ( Los Angeles)...which then led to airplay in San Jose, California, Springfield, MS, Atlanta, GA, Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN, Memphis, TN, and Charlotte, NC. The single was recently picked up in Germany and Sweden, with record company interest out of those markets. Success has also come from the bands’ website where the CD has been in demand as far away as Australia.

At the time of the release of Butterfinger’s second single, “Do You Feel”, which has already hit #1 on several Canadian radio play lists, the band has seen its popularity grow immeasurably. This has led to an “Outstanding Rock Recording” nomination at the Western Canadian Music Awards. The single “Fall” will be featured on the WCMA’s Compilation CD, as well as in 15 thousand cases of Big Rock products. In addition to the WCMA compilation CD, “Fall” was selected to be the first track on Indie Pool’s compilation disc of Canada’s best unsigned bands. The one-year anniversary of the album’s release also saw Butterfinger receive a VideoFACT grant to shoot a video for “Do You Feel” with Toronto-based film company Firewatch Films.

“Butterfinger is a blend of polished songwriting and an extremely powerful live performance.” (CD Baby “Editor’s Pick”) It’s that performance that has packed centers around the country--and made fans addicted for more.
