Probably the most exciting young rock/blues band on the UK circuit
Dynamic rock/blues band Red Butler is fast making a name for itself across Britain and Europe. Audiences instantly tap into the
energy and passion generated by the young band from Brighton.
Alex Butler channelled his burning desire for a full-time career in music by establishing the band in 2012. After some early changes,
the line-up became Alex on guitar, Jane Pearce (vocals), Charlie Simpson (drums) and Steve Eveleigh (bass). Steve left in 2014 and
was replaced by Mike Topp.
The youngsters developed their music by rocking the south of England pub circuit, but it was the ability to deliver music from the energetic rock end of the spectrum to passionate blues at the other that won them fans much further afield.
The power and sensitivity of their music has seen Red Butler win national awards and undertake a series of tours across the country.
• Red Butler represented the UK at the European Blues Challenge in Italy in 2016.
• They won the UK Blues Challenge 2015.
• They were British Blues Awards runners-up 2015 (Alex - Young Artist; Band - Emerging Artist category).
• They are nominees in British Blues Awards 2016 (Alex - Young Artist; and Band - Best Blues Band category).
