Ten years in the making, Butterill’s latest CD, “Troubadour Tales”, was recorded in several studios with over twenty luminary guests including Donovan, Cindy Cashdollar, Ray Bonneville, Redd Volkaert and Audrey Auld, amongst others, and is getting rave reviews and strong airplay around the world.
Sometimes compared to Gordon Lightfoot, JJ Cale and John Prine, Butterill’s rustic, minimalist music is richly textured but never over-produced. Butterill’s live shows have a warm ambience with an up-close personal vibe that match the cool feel and groove of his albums.
“There is a time in every artist’s career when they are at the top of their game. For Kenny Butterill that time is now!” says Brent Jeffries, freelance writer for The Sun Times, Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada where Butterill performed last year.
