It’s the Simple Things in life that have led Brad Butcher to the making of his 2nd release, Jamestown. A true Renaissance man at heart, Butcher always yearned to create. He grew up to the sounds of his mother playing Bach and Beethoven on the family piano and spent his nights writing songs on his hand-me-down guitar.
In 2012, Brad released his acclaimed self-titled debut album, which earned him nominations for a range of Australian and international songwriting and artist development awards, as well as supports and guest appearances alongside Busby Marou, Bill Chambers, Mark Seymour and Pete Murray. The single from the record, Conversations & Complications, was co-written by Grammy award winning songwriter/producer Marc Swersky (Joe Cocker/Diesel).
Butcher, again with Swersky, explores new themes with forthcoming sophomore album, Jamestown. Drawn to American country roots music, Butcher decided the best way to achieve his vision was to board a flight to America. Jamestown was recorded at Shorefire Recording Studios in New Jersey, (a true vintage gear playground) and produced by Swersky who also played bass on the record. Jamestown was cut live over a period of 7 days and features a group of seasoned musicians including: Steve Holley (Paul McCartney & The Wings), Rich Hinman (Rosanne Cash, Sara Bareilles), Richard Causon (Ryan Adams), & Lorenza Ponce (Sheryl Crow, Bon Jovi). The majority of songs on the record were first or second takes, helping to create an honest, dusty and raw 70’s vibe.
