Elizabeth Butler was that kid...the one locked away in her Savannah, Georgia bedroom as a teenager, poring over the liner notes of albums from Cat Stevens, Carole King, and Dan Fogelberg. She took in melody and song construction and lyrics while listening with the volume up way too loud. It is a fitting portrait of an artist that embraces every aspect of a music career with gusto, from writing, recording, collaborating, and navigating the business. This holistic approach to her career shone brightly on Love & Loss & Stuff Like That, her first solo album released in July 2014 and co-produced by Troy Warren, Jr. She describes the album as a scrapbook concept, as if the listener is taking pieces of an artist's journal and absorbing a life story in frames and vignettes. Butler's style is a "cool gumbo of sound", and the listener can easily pick out country, pop, jazz, and blues influences amidst an undeniably unique sound that is steeped in years of practice and stacks of vinyl. Recording is the chance to let her compositions reflect life as a whole. "It's the juxtaposition of the big romantic swells with those small, intimate moments, and there is a craft to recording that."  -Jana Pochop for Social Thinkery
