Butler’s tenacious, indomitable spirit and effervescent view of silver-lined clouds infuses his music like a heaven-sent harbinger of healing. “Music is spiritual and it heals. It soothes the heart and mind,” states Butler, who after a tumultuous year wrought with immense personal loss, pain and suffering offers up his latest release “So Strong.”
Acclaimed South African two-time Grammy nominated songwriter, guitarist, and producer, Jonathan Butler, has had a 25 year recording career in pop, R&B, smooth jazz and adult formats. Butler, a soulfully inspired man, sees music as his salvation and “the purpose and tool which God has used for my life.” If we must label and define this individually gifted artist and his music, “soul jazz” seems to be the most fitting and is a driving force behind his live performances.
