*Winners of the UK BLUES CHALLENGE 2015*

Debut album “Freedom Bound” – out now!

With a burning desire to entertain and pursue a serious music career, at the age of 18 Alex Butler decided to form a band. The blues/rock outfit Red Butler emerged in April 2012, and the established line up consists of Alex Butler (guitar), Charlie Simpson (drums), Jane Pearce (vocals) and Mike Topp (bass).

Drawing upon influences from SRV, Etta James, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Free, King King, Santana and Derek Trucks the band have developed their own style of writing and have begun producing thoughtful, light hearted and melodic compositions. The band have been mentioned a number of times by the blues media culminating in the award for ‘Best New UK Act’ 2014 via the Writers Poll for Blues Matters!
