Name Butch Walker
First post September 2008

Butch Walker first gained attention in Cartersville, Georgia in the 80s as a guitarist and performer. He moved to LA in 1988, and less than a year later, his band was signed to Virgin Records. Today, Butch is best known as a musical renaissance man. He’s produced or written for Katy Perry, Weezer, Pink, and Avril Lavigne. His last album earned stellar reviews, with Rolling Stone calling him “one of America’s best singer-songwriters.” Next up, the August 30 release of The Spade, and the premiere of the first single, “Summer of 89,” on his Tumblr blog today.
