Tupelo Drive-In presents JON BUTCHER
Grammy-nominated guitarist Jon Butcher is one of a select handful of influential recording artists who emerged from the legendary '80s Boston music scene. MTV videos, hit songs, and incendiary live performances comprise the underpinnings of a rich music career that continues today. Jon'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 are electrifying and not surprisingly playing to packed venues everywhere!
2020 will begin the New Year bringing the fire with the re-release of one of AXIS' signature songs, 'IT TAKES A NEW MAN', re-mixed and re-mastered, and by the way as relevant today as when Jon wrote it! NEW MAN will be released along with 'KISS THE SKY', music written for a film of the same name by acclaimed director Norman Lang and featuring Tara Buck (Ray Donovan, True Blood) and Jon Butcher in his first on-screen dramatic role. During primary shooting the movie ran into resistance from the parent company due to the controversial nature of the material. As a result the movie soundtrack KISS THE SKY has never been released nor even heard by the general public. The song is raw, soulful and intense, enough to satisfy the most ardent Jon Butcher guitar fan! 'IT TAKES A NEW MAN' and 'KISS THE SKY', new for 2020!
