I’ve been a big fan of the John Butler Trio (JBT) for a few years now. The melodic-acoustic trio have an archive of music that will promise to suit any mood.
Frontman John Butler started out busking on the streets. He’s now hugely successful world-wide but remains a passionate activist at heart.
He recently has guest starred in an Australian documentary series which traces the heritage of it’s homegrown celebrities. If you’re into the band, his episode is worth a watch, just follow this link.
If you haven’t heard him/them before then I definitely recommend watching the video below. It’s a live performance of the instrumental song “Ocean” that he wrote when he was busking on the streets. Incredibly powerful song by a hugely talented guy.
