Grammy-nominated Jon Butcher‘s recognizable sound and signature guitar work represent a skillful mix of Americana – rock, r&b, jazz and folk, all of it focused through a prism built from the blues. Early in his career, Jon was compared with Jimi Hendrix although he counts ‘Keb Mo, Taj Mahal, Richie Havens, Tracy Chapman and John Lennon among his influences. “When people come to my acoustic shows I think they’re surprised!” Jon’s acoustic work on acoustic guitar, dobro, slide and banjo has found its way into feature film, cable & network TV, and his live acoustic concert schedule.
Here is a video of Jon Butcher performing the song Going to Heaven on Allen Estes’ Local Music Seen cable TV program.
Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest CD, “All My Heroes Are Ghosts,” was released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies. It touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days – the loss of so many musical heroes on the title track, the chaos of “fake news” on “Monster,” our collective anxieties on “All On Fire,” and more. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.
