Just hoping to get some feedback from fellow fans. Probably in my top 5 favorite artists. On pins and needles waiting for some US tour announcements after they wrap up in Oz. Ans obviosuly cant wait for the new album. If you are not familiar with John Butler, please do yourself and favor and check them out! John's an incredible musician.

  • Really want to see him live. I like a lot of his stuff and have heard only excellent things from those who have seen him in concert.

    I'll be hoping for some U.S. shows with you.
  • John Butler kicks ass. He's an amazing guitar player and his live shows are fantastic and everyone has to see it live. I really liked Shannon Mitchall and Michael Barker who were playing with him. I'm curious to see his new band.

    Pickapart is one of the first Butler tunes I heard, fell in love instantly.

    I've been into this guy for years but haven't yet had a chance to see him. I'm hoping to rectify that in the near future!

    Good to see some more fans around here.

    Wade In The Water
    “Wade in the Water” is one of my favourite songs off of this album. It’s a soul-searching proclamation and a journey back to myself. The words just kind of fell out and I didn’t really know what they meant for a long time until I stood back and took a look at the song and the passage of time I’d just been through. This song celebrates my love for Led Zeppelin, hip-hop back beat, Indian classic music, and is one of my favourite songs to play live.

    Just Call
    "Here’s my latest offering from my new album HOME. This is another one of my favourites. It’s an unabashed love song about meeting my partner, Danielle Caruana, in the romantic and red dirt drenched country of the Kimberley in a town called Broome. This is also one of the best videos I’ve ever made. Soooooo simple yet fairly complex to get just right. I did the jump about 6 times on a winter’s day in the flood waters of the Murray River in Pinjarra, Western Australia, where I grew up from 11-20 y/o. I LOOOOOVE this part of the world. I grew up on this river and it became one of my best friends. I scurfedit, swam it, jumped outta trees into it, explored abandoned farm houses along her banks and generally lived out a ‘Huckleberry Finn’ existence on this river – What a blessed wonderland to grow up in. I’m a lucky man to have had this country teach me and hold me through the ups and downs of my formative years. This location is ‘Graveyards.’ It’s legendary to the kids and locals of Pinjarra. I LOVE THIS VIDEO!! I hope you enjoy it too."
