KUBE MUSIC REVIEW
Butler's music is simple, yet effective and his voice is clear and sharp. The haunting choral tones heard supporting him through the chorus of On The Line stay with you long after the final bar is through and the sheer clarity and simplistic nature of the music creates a huge connection with the audience. With a steady, consistent beat On The Line gets your head nodding and instills an easy, inclusive rhythm that keeps you invested and interested; it's a great, uncomplicated track that's easy to enjoy.
Tom Butler is a truly unique and appealing artist who I would wholly recommend - definitely ideal for fans of folk who may have a Tom-shaped hole in their collection..."
