John Butler - Tin Shed's Tales
One of Australia's most respected singer/songwriters, John Butler returned to his roots, performing a series of solo concerts throughout the country over the past couple of months. Aptly titled Tin Shed Tales, the shows were a rare opportunity to hear the music of this iconic artist, solo and in a raw and intimate setting. Designed and dressed personally by John, his Tin Shed was recreated; decked out with a collection of personal art pieces and old skool skateboards with his vintage guitars hanging from the corrugated shed walls.
Now John Butler gives his fans the opportunity to relive the experience with the release of the Tin Shed Tales Live Recording packaged in a 2 CD set. This CD truly captures John Butler in a completely new light, not only as the skillful musician stripped back and bare but as a humbled and relaxed performer. It's as if he's hanging out with a bunch of close friends as he engages the audience interspersing his music prowess with anecdotes, some of which will make you laugh and move you and others which might well give you food for thought.
The first five shows of the tour; Fremantle, Kalgoorlie, Mandurah, Dunsbourough and Albany - were recorded and the best tracks, accompanied by John's insightful tales, have been selected to form the content of the Tin Shed Tales Double CD.
The 13 track package includes classics like 'Better Than', 'Pickapart' and 'Treat yo Mama', as well as reworkings of April Uprising's hit 'Revolution', a moving rendition of the classic Irish ballad 'Danny Boy' and the brand new song 'Kimberley' amongst others.
The double CD Digipack will be made available from all good retailers and online through iTunes, and
