John Butler plays didgeridoo, hand drums, raw overdriven acoustic guitars, and sings like a motherfucker. It's powerful rootsy stuff, and the dude's got a lot to say. Definitely worth seeing.
"Sunrise Over Sea may be the John Butler Trio's American major label debut, but it's hardly your typical introduction to a new artist. The album?s mesmerizing 13 tracks deliver a perfect, eclectic blend of blues, reggae, classic country, Appalachian folk, funk, rock and hip-hop beats into a form and style that ultimately can only be classified as... well, the John Butler Trio. But the real truth is that Sunrise Over Sea isn't actually a debut album at all. John Butler is already something of a musical phenomenon in Australia where this -- and three previous albums -- have taken him to the top of the charts and made him one of the biggest concert draws and THE most successful independent musician on that continent."
