John Butler Trio

An Aussie roots rock group led by guitarist and vocalist John Butler, the John Butler Trio emerged in the late 1990s, and found success via the platinum-selling albums Sunrise Over Sea (2004) and Grand National (2007). Australia’s biggest contribution to the jam band movement, the trio’s heady amalgam of reggae, political folk, blues, pop, and acoustic soul dominated the regional charts in the 2000s and 2010s. While facets of alt-rock began seeping into the mix on 2010’s acclaimed April Uprising, and 2018’s Home saw the group incorporating some electronic elements, JBT have never lost their knack for pairing deft musicality with addictive yet off-center grooves, and have managed to maintain a large and loyal fan base both at home and abroad.
