Tom here. Wow! What a week it's been, but I'm here just to report on the amazing experience the band and I had at the Greenbelt Festival up in Kettering at the Boughton House. I played a solo set on Saturday August 29. I want to express a sincere 'Thank You' to all of you who listened and were in attendance. In a summary, the compere said "Go see Tom Butler tomorrow at the big top if you want to hear great music and average chat"… Read more


Hey Friends, 

I don't know why it took so long for me to get around to writing about my experience at Glastonbury Festival. It was absolutely amazing and I met some very wonderful people. Overall, my stay was very very simple. I had a few impromptu performances, but performed twice officially on the PRS For Music VIP stage. Unfortunately, because of permissions and rights issues with the BBC, getting the footage to the performances has been difficult, but I'll post what I can when I get my hands on it. This… Read more

Kill The Myths: My Trip To New York

Kill The Myths: My Trip to New York
By Tom Butler

Quick Recap: New York City is overall a pretty safe place!

I currently live in London and was pretty nervous about my first trip to the Big Apple. People tols me that the subway was dirty and and smelly (which I'm sure is more of an isssue during the muggy summer months). During this winter Christmas season, however, the subway was just your basic run of the mill dirty-ish subway.

Quick question for those in New York: is the water…

​What was it like to win the PRS Songwriting Prize? 

What was it like to win the PRS Songwriting Prize for the Gigs 2014 Busking Competition?

It was like being underwater. I was standing on stage with all of the judges and the 5 other contestants for the songwriting prize (who are excellent songwriters). When Guy Fletcher said, "Tom Butler", I had no idea what to do or say. Here are some photos and videos from the experience:



After: Me giving a mumbled and terrible acceptance speech. I think I said 'Thank you...' When I went on stage to play…
