Biography

Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, Butler began singing publicly at the age of nine with the Cotton Street Gospel Choir (an all Afro-American choir in which he was the only Caucasian). At the age of sixteen, Butler and his family left Georgia for Seattle, Washington. There he began to play the guitar, and with two of his five brothers, formed a group called the Mudville Flats. They were a local hit and toured the Northwest for several years. It was in Seattle that Butler sold his first song to a recording group, The Jerry Rowen Trio. "What Moment of the Day" was written as a country song, but wound up as a bosa nova tune on the Rowen album. After hearing the butchery of his song, Butler never played the song again.
With over a hundred original tunes to date, Butler has placed songs in the films "Holyman Undercover", "Run On", "Armadillo Texas" and the award winning short film "The Little Acorn". He's also placed songs in the popular television series "The Gilmore Girls" and the series "Sirens".
In the past five years Butler and his band has played in almost every known live music venue known to man and woman...and also...in a few that probably shouldn't be known to anybody. The band recently finished their second tour of the Sunset Strip - playing at the famous Troubadour Club, the Viper Room, the Key Club and the House of Blues. They are now hard at work promoting their new Album "That Light is Always On" on the independent label Concrete Country Music. To buy their new Album you can go to any of the sites like Itunes, Cdbaby, Amazon, etc. etc. Or, come to a live gig and buy the CD in person.
