In today’s digital age, an ‘Aussie” artist like Brad Butcher is part of a dying breed. You see Brad isn’t about writing to please a certain demographic nor aiming for fame or fortune. Brad is about telling his story in the only way he knows, with honesty, in his unique writing quality and with a refreshing view of his world. Above all though, Brads songs share a message of hope and inspiration within, that most modern songwriters fail to communicate.
FROM THE BOTTOM OF A WELL (Spotify Link) cements Butcher at the forefront of a new generation of Australian story tellers.
