About the John Butler Trio
The Aussie roots/ jam band known as The John Butler Trio now have six studio albums to their name thanks to the February 2014 release of "Flesh & Blood." The project, which was recorded in just 20 days in Butler's studio, is packaged with an album cover taken in Butler's backyard shed. And for all the hominess that kind of info conveys, the album sparked a massive international tour still rolling along.
Those early sessions to lay down tracks for "Flesh & Blood" actually followed the band's largest U.S. tour to date. A trek which apparently lended itself to a bit of creative resurgence within the band, as they started out with a completely blank songwriting slate and co-wrote material for the first time ever.
If you're noticing the theme here is a bunch of firsts, rest assured that the band's latest project was not its first to experience success. It was the band's second studio album, 2001's "Three," that reached the top 30 in the Australian album charts and achieved platinum sales, charting a course of success over the next decade. Their subsequent albums, "Sunrise Over Sea," "Grand National," and "April Uprising" all debuted at number one on the Australian album charts, and their first-ever live album also reached the Top Ten.
Experience the spirit and energy of the John Butler Trio on tour. They have world tour dates in France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic and Japan through July 27th. The band then returns stateside for North American dates beginning July 31st in Louisville, Kentucky.
