John Butler

John Butler and I sat and chatted before he headed out to the show he would have at The Egg on July 12th.  We discussed things like 20 years of John Butler Trio, the whole idea of this "plus" tour, his new album that is coming, and of course the song "Ocean."

Thanks for stopping by, John!

Stores From NPR Music

Birdtalker's music arises at the point where intimate exchange connects with community. Zack and Dani Green were a newly married couple when, one afternoon, the guitarist and singer asked his spouse for input on a song he was writing. Within hours, they realized that Dani's background as a student of literature and inherent talent as a harmonizer brought Zack's music to another level.

Are you up for having a good time today? Trick question — it's impossible not to have a good time with The Suffers, as Kam Franklin explains in the opening lines of "Do Whatever": "Full on disclosure, I'm not here for exposure / I came to have a good time, so let me shine."
