Grammy-nominated guitarist Jon Butcher is one of a select handful of influential recording artists who emerged from the legendary Boston music scene. MTV videos, hit songs and incendiary live performances comprise the underpinnings of a rich music career that continues today.
Jon Butcher's signature sound features his powerful soul-infused vocals; and his guitar work reflects a skillful mix of Rock and R&B, Funk and Soul, Jazz and Americana, all of it focused through a prism built from the Blues. Jon’s powerhouse live performances with bandmates Chris Martin ( bass), Jeff Keithline (bass), John Anthony (drums), Marty Richards (drums) are electrifying and not surprisingly playing to packed venues everywhere!
2022 features the release of GYPSY CARAVAN, the new album and debut of Butcher, Baglio & Estes which features the collaborative songwriting of Jon, Sal Baglio ( The Amplifier Heads, Tom Hambridge & The Rattlesnakes, The Stompers) and legendary singer-songwriter Allen Estes. GYPSY CARAVAN is 11 new songs of rock blues, and acoustic blues full of rich harmonies and Jon's acrobatic and soul-infused guitar work- available now!
Says Jon," This is a great record, strong, soulful and above all it has its roots in the Blues. I haven't done a band collaborative thing since Leland Sklar and I were in Barefoot Servants. Making GYPSY was electric and so cool on multiple levels. And an opportunity to finally record with two of my best friends!"
With a discography of 21 LP and CD Int'l releases to his credit, critical acclaim and great reviews of Jon Butcher 360° and 2021's hit album SPECIAL DAY it should come as no surprise that Jon's creative output is- still- on fire.
