I was initially drawn to Josh Savage’s music because of his song “Mountains in Hurricanes.” I loved the imagery in the lyrics and the rich clarity in Josh’s voice. The more I listened to the song, the more intrigued I became. Read more >>

The Winter Poet: Interview with Tyler Butler

It would be fairly accurate to say that Tyler Butler is a poet first and a musician second. Listening to his music is akin to reading the Romantic poetry of William Blake and Percy Shelley.
