Australian roots and jam band JOHN BUTLER TRIO+ is led by guitarist and vocalist John Butler, an APRA and ARIA-award-winning musician. An independent role model, founder of Australia’s Jarrah Records, family man and proud skateboard aficionado, John Butler is an enigma. Front man for Australia’s ultimate jam band, he is the consummate rebel-refugee whose songs chart disenchantment with the corporate world and show a yearning for truth along with an ongoing struggle for a sense of locus. The music of JOHN BUTLER TRIO+ mixes rootedness and rootlessness, pain and celebration in a way that is utterly beguiling. One of the most successful recording artists Australia has ever produced and a musician whose reputation has begun to rock the waters of both Europe and America, Butler is nevertheless a man on the edge, poised like a beautiful suicide. Where will he go next? Up or down? Despite the tensions within the man and his music the new album makes his future trajectory abundantly clear.
