Butch Walker

After gaining a brief taste of major-label success during the '80s and '90s -- particularly with Marvelous 3, whose single "Freak of the Weak" became a modern rock hit in 1999 -- singer/guitarist Butch Walker traded his bandmates for a solo career. Meanwhile, he also established himself as an in-demand producer by working with marketable artists like Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and P!nk.

Raised in Cartersville, Georgia, Bradley Glenn Walker III launched his public career with the band SouthGang, who traveled to Los Angeles in 1988 and inked a contract with Virgin Records. The pop-metal group released two albums before splitting up, and Walker eventually resurfaced with Marvelous 3. The band enjoyed moderate popularity as the '90s wound to a close, but Walker grew frustrated with the band's label, Elektra Records, and Marvelous 3 splintered soon after. He then spent a year producing albums for such groups as Injected and SR-71 (whose most popular single, "Right Now," was co-written by Walker). The production work increased his reputation within the industry, and he quickly signed a solo contract with Arista. Left of Self Centered marked his solo debut in 2002; it also took a page from Marvelous 3's book by embodying the singer's non-conformist attitude and playful rock & roll swagger. Unfortunately, neither that album nor its follow-up, 2004's Letters, caught on with the public.

Walker increasingly turned to production work, and he spent the following two years helming records for such big-name artists as Avril Lavigne (Under My Skin), P!nk (I'm Not Dead), and Tommy Lee (Tommyland: The Ride), as well as emerging pop stars like Lindsay Lohan (A Little More Personal [Raw]). The experience further boosted his industry profile and helped shape the sound of his next solo album, 2006's The Rise and Fall of Butch Walker and the Let's-Go-Out-Tonites. The album spun stories of drugged-out starlets, struggling wannabes, late-night adventures, and wild parties in L.A.; it was also Walker's most fully realized record to date. Ever the multi-tasker, he returned to the production booth for several new projects -- most notably Katy Perry's One of the Boys, which became a smash success during the summer of 2008 -- before returning to his solo career that fall with Sycamore Meadows.

I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart followed in 2010 and featured a new backup band, the Black Widows, which included fellow Georgia natives Fran Capitanelli and Chris Unck. The new group also played on Walker's next album, Spade, which appeared the following year. ~ Tim Sendra & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

He's great. A true pop virtuoso and a fantastic songwriter. Marvelous 3 was also awesome.
Screw you people who hate butch walker. He is awesome. Ships in a bottle is about his house burning down
I probably would have slit my wrists back in the day if it wasn't for LETTERS reminding me that I wasn't the only one to have f**ked up s**t happen to them. He's my favorite artist now.
I had to click on the comments tab just to express how totally annoying this guy is.
:) ❤️
janas_02476
he does not come to New England often enough and I cannot get a ticket when he does. Someone fix that please
Best artist of all time! Cartersville is my hometown!
Butch is a Georgia native that you don't mind seeing over and over. One of the music industries most talented musicians. He is definitely my favorite show to see live. His music is very infectious.

Great show last night in NYC, Butch was great.
This man is amazingly talented and by far my favorite artist.
staabjohn
He was best with Floyds Funk Revival
Butch Walker is in a class by himself, and the chameleonic nature of his projects only show that he's always looking to grow, to expand and to be true to himself. Hands down the coolest guy in music. Keep it up, Butch.

we have photos of Butch Walker in Chicago!!! Check them out at http://thede a d h u b . c o m / t h e - r e a l - b u t c h - w a l k e r /
My first real concert was Cheap Trick in 79. Butch is the only performer to beat them live. He is also an amazing songwriter.

this guy is a great singer/songw r i t e r . . . y e s he can be a bit cheesey and over the top and yes some of the folks he produces are dreadful (Linsay, Rockstar:Sup e r n o v a ) but the guy can deliver live and he has been able to record 3 very cool solo discs.
You know that there is something grossly wrong with this country when this type of talent's "credibility " increases more due to making Lindsey Lohan look good than his exceptional music. Butch Walker is filed under "can't live without" and "will listen to forever" in my tunes. Thanks Butch!
