John Butler’s New Album

Episode: 1
Broadcast: 20th March
Presenter: Tod Johnston

For Tod Johnston travelling around our state with DestinationWA doesn’t just mean the opportunity to see some amazing places.. it’s also a chance to bump into amazing West Aussies like John Butler, also known as the “Million Dollar Hippie”.

  • Aria Award winning musician John Butler recently made the move ‘down south’ to be part of a place that has always inspired him and his unique style of music.
  • John was born in California, but he was brought up in Pinjarra – on the edge of the Murray river – he is a Western Australian with a strong connection to where he has chosen to be in this world.
  • Twenty years ago John was busking on the streets of Fremantle. This year he’s the headline act at the Fremantle Blues and Roots Festival and he is thrilled with the honour.

Check out the Blues and Roots festival website.. this year may be over but 2016 is just around the corner.

And don’t forget to seek out a copy of John’s latest album Flesh and Blood which earned this talented West Aussie and the John Butler Trio an Aria, the track is featured on Tod’s story on DestinationWA.
