John Butler Trio

Though he spent the first 11 years of his life in California, it was in Australia -- his father's native land -- that guitarist John Butler picked up the instrument that would later launch his music career. After showing interest in the guitar, the 16-year-old Butler was given his late grandfather's dobro. He quickly began learning to play different styles of music, including Indian, Celtic, bluegrass, and folk. Butler showcased his budding skills by busking on the streets of Perth and Fremantle, and he began building an audience after releasing a homemade cassette featuring his own instrumental songs. The busking performances eventually gave way to a weekly residency at Mojos, a bar in North Fremantle, and Butler balanced his Tuesday evening gigs with preparations for a proper studio album.

He released the self-titled John Butler in 1998, having recorded the album with drummer Jason McGann and bassist Gavin Shoesmith. The JBT EP followed in 2000, and Three -- the first of Butler's albums to also receive an American release -- appeared in 2001. Shoesmith had decided to leave the John Butler Trio by this point, but he was replaced by Rory Quirk and then later by Andrew Fry, who joined the band for its 2002 American tour. By now a bona fide star in Australia, Butler released a flurry of material during the three subsequent years: a double-disc live album, Living 2001-2002; an EP, Zebra; and a proper studio album entitled Sunrise Over Sea. Living 2001-2002 sold well and went platinum in Australia, but Sunrise Over Sea trumped its success exponentially, eventually going five-times platinum in Butler's homeland and faring well on several international charts as well. It also led to an opening spot on Dave Matthews' tour that year, which spread the John Butler Trio's music to thousands of new fans.

Still partnered with Jarrah Records, the indie label that he and fellow Aussies the Waifs had founded in order to distribute their music overseas, Butler released Grand National worldwide in March 2007. Grand National was an ambitious project, featuring more instruments than the band's past releases, as well as multiple guest appearances. It was also the last album to feature bandmembers Shannon Birchall and Michael Barker, as Butler restructured the trio's lineup in 2009 in order to keep the music fresh. Featuring bassist Byron Luiters and drummer Nicky Bomba, the revised John Butler Trio returned to the studio later that year to commence work on April Uprising, the band's fifth studio album, which was released in early 2010. While touring later that year, the group recorded a particularly memorable performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater, which was packaged into a three-disc live album and released in 2011 as Live at Red Rocks. The trio's sixth long-player, Flesh & Blood, arrived in early 2014. ~ Marisa Brown & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Sweet jesus Pandora. These guys are ok, just not my cup of tea. No big deal, except that Pandora keeps paying their music all the time on my station even though i don't have them seeding music, nor do i have any of their tracks thumbed up. In fact every time one pops up i thumb it down, and Pandora just plays a new one next time.

Hearing the amazing songs from recordings for a couple of years, but seeing the JBT live changed the way I feel about them. They are the hardest working band up on stage since Rush, and the connection they made with their audience was truly memorable. More live when they come back to town (we saw them the day they released F&B) and we have bought a few discs already to support them.

I first found out about JBT at Bonnaroo 2007 and didn't really know what I was listening to...he was playing ocean and I was digging it pretty good, needless to say I didn't even know his name, the bands name or the name of the song. I was supposed to meet up with friends at THAT tent and they were blowing me up. Soooo I left in the middle of the

I was at this show. JBT is just amazing live, such an outstanding guitarist. Check him out live if you ever get the chance. They have a huge following in Colorado, and Red Rocks is just a great venue for him.

The previous year to the Red Rocks album, JBT opened for G Love and they BLEW THEM OFF the STAGE! I think a bunch of people left after John Butler. They came back and did this headlining show the next year. They have a really big following in Colorado.

The band is magical live.

I had not heard of JBT until I saw them live at an outdoor amphitheater backing up G. Love. After they were done, everyone in the audience was saying G. Love better bring his A game or he will get shown up. JBT is one of the best live bands i have ever seen.
