Hi, my name is Alex Butler!
I am a guitarist, musician and tutor. On this site you will find information about my music and projects ... first a little bit about me!
I'm best known for my work with the band Red Butler. This is a band I started around three years ago who have since had coverage on Radio 2, Classic Rock, Blues In Britain, Guitar Buyer, Classic Rock Blues, Blues Matters and many more. Amongst extensive touring around the UK alongside some of the most respected blues musicians on the circuit we have also been nominated twice in the British Blues Awards 2015 as Best Emerging Artist and myself as Young Artist. We were also fortunate enough to win the Best New UK Act from Blues Matters Last Year.
I have had a passion for music and passion since the age of 7, I started my musical journey with a classical tutor and then progressed to study rock/blues music after a few years. From there things snowballed and I was soon playing in as many bands as possible, along with learning as many styles as I could. During this time I have studied blues, rock, jazz, flamenco and classical techniques, including a National Diploma in Modern Music, Recording, Production and Music Business. As with any art I find myself continually learning new things from those I work with in all circles of music.
I am heavily involved in teaching music around the South East area, I run my own business teaching within schools and privately. Myself and the Red Butler drummer Charlie Simpson also run an exciting music school under the name 'Red Butler Music School.'
