John Butlers New Trio
Australian guitarist John Butler will debut a new trio this summer. Melbourne musician Nicky Bombawill, who played drums on the John Butler Trios 2004 album, Sunrise Over Sea, will return to the fold, while Sydney musician Byron Luiterswill will take over on bass. In a statement Butler said, Over the last twelve years of the JBT, I have been blessed with some amazing individuals. All have left their legacy and have raised the musical bar of the band. With any new incarnation it has always been an honour and challenge to meet the benchmark the band has achieved artistically and take it to the next level. Its great to be playing with Nicky again and Byron brings a whole new level of melody, funk and Mojo to the Trio. Very exciting times.
Butler is currently in the midst of a solo guitar tour. He will appear next at Paris Folie Bergere this Friday.
