Alex Butler established the band in 2012 and for a long time the line-up comprised Alex (lead guitar and backing vocals), Jane Pearce (lead vocals), Charlie Simpson (drums) and Mike Topp (bass and backing vocals).

With the heavier sound of their album ‘Nothing To Lose’, Dan Spellman (guitar and backing vocals) joined the line-up.

The end of 2016 saw the biggest change to date when Jane opted to leave the band to pursue her own career. Dan has stepped into the role of lead vocalist having performed that role with other bands and is already exciting audiences with his voice and stage presence. The search is on for an-other vocalist, which could give Red Butler the exciting possibility of twin vocalists.

The band’s influences include SRV, Free, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Gary Clarke Jnr. and artists such as Royal Blood and Vintage Trouble.

Touring with the Laurence Jones Band, Billy Walton Band and Danny Bryant added enormously to the band experience. Their solo tours have helped them hone their craft and delight audiences across the country.

The coming year will provide the opportunity to develop the full potential of Red Butler.
