Whidbey Island - New Music Coming Soon 

Hey Friends,

It was beautiful yesterday visiting Whidbey Island for the first time. My family and I had a cabin in the San Juan islands, so poor old Whidbey Island was always passed by when I was a child.

Regarding music updates, I'm still in the studio and recording more songs and things are going well. 

Hope you're well.

Tom

I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE DARK - TOM BUTLER (Covering Death Cab For Cutie)

Cheers,  
Tom

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.
