bw_headProducer, songwriter, solo artist extraordinaire Butch Walker sits down to discuss his new album LETTERS, what his fans mean to him and Elvis Costello Tattoos.

Currently out on tour with American Hi Fi and Val Emmich, Butch Walker brings his new album Letters (In stores August 24th) to the stage with a unique blend of raw emotion, rockin good times, and intimate crowd singalongs. Who knew you could get all of that in one show! His set consists mostly of songs from the new album, a few from his first solo release “Left of Self-Centered”, a fun cover with shared vocals, and he even pulls a few Marvelous 3 songs out of the vault. (One being my all time favorite Cigarette Lighter Love Song.) I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about American Hi Fi backing Butch as his band since I’m also a huge Hi Fi fan but it was such a natural chemistry and worked better than I ever could have dreamed. It was nice to see Stacy back on drums again too. I hadn’t even thought about that little bonus.

Before the show Butch took some time out of his hectic day to sit down with me and answer a few questions. Big thanks to him! He was very sincere and as always – hilarious. it was an honor and a privilege.
