Dynamic rock/blues band Red Butler is fast making a name for itself across Britain and Europe. Audiences instantly tap into the fire and passion generated by the young band from Brighton.
November 2016 saw the culmination of 18 months preparation with the release of the band’s lovingly crafted second album, "Nothing To Lose" produced at Superfly Studios by Wayne Proctor. The music represents a journey for the band and has been well received by their supporters, new fans and the music media. This album follows the success of Red Butler’s debut release, "Freedom Bound" in summer 2014. The ‘Nothing to Lose’ tour extended through October-December showcasing the new album and the extended line-up. Those performances thrilled audiences as the band unleashed its energy with control and power.
‘Nothing To Lose’ is a collaborative project drawn from the band members’ individual experiences of life and music. Red Butler see the need to deliver a message to younger people whilst retaining the support of their established blues/rock audience. Influences include SRV, Free, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Gary Clarke Jnr. and artists such as Royal Blood and Vintage Trouble. Touring with the Laurence Jones Band, Billy Walton Band and Danny Bryant added enormously to the band experience. Their solo tours have helped them hone their craft and delight audiences across the country. The coming year will provide the opportunity to develop the full potential of Red Butler.
The power and sensitivity of their music has seen Red Butler win national awards. Successes include:
* Alex – runner up in Young Artist category – British Blues Awards 2016.
* Band – third place in Best Blues Band category – British Blues Awards 2016.
* Representing the UK at the European Blues Challenge in Italy 2016.
Winners of the UK Blues Challenge 2015.
* Runners-up in the British Blues Awards 2015 (Alex, Young Artist and Band, Emerging Artist).
* ‘Best New UK Act’ 2014 – Blues Matters Magazine
