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 will feature the release of GYPSY CARAVAN, a new album featuring the collaborative songwriting of Jon, Sal Baglio ( The Amplifier Heads, Tom Hambridge & The Rattlesnakes, The Stompers) and legendary singer-songwriter Allen Estes. GYPSY CARAVAN will be 11 new songs of rock blues, and acoustic blues full of rich harmonies and Jon's acrobatic and soul-infused guitar work. Scheduled for release September of 2022.
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!"
