John Butler's twelve string classical acoustic guitar, slide guitar and banjo are accompanied by a deep sounding double bass and some really catchy drum beats.

The John Butler Trio are following, as well as furthering, that tradition's footsteps.

...is Aussie slang for what we Yanks would call "the real deal". And these guys are it: a jam-band from Down Under that can deliver the goods. This CD was released in Australia in 2004 but is just making its way Stateside now, with the addition of the burgeoning radio hit "Betterman". As the cover suggests, this CD has a closely-miked, "live-in-the-studio" sound - an organic effect supported by some fine acoustic/electric musicianship: John Butler's guitar (including lap steel and bottleneck) and banjo, Nicky Bomba's drums, and Shannon Birchall's double (as in upright) bass. Stylistically, you'll hear elements of Dave Matthews, maybe a hint of Black Keys, and especially the bass-heavy funk of Red Hot Chili Peppers (Butler's vocals have been compared to Anthony Kiedas). But there's a satisfying mix of rock, funk, blues and even trad-folk (the lovely instrumental "Mist"). Several tracks here are radio-ready, like the aforementioned "Betterman", "Treat Yo Mama" and "Zebra". And the long closing track "Sometimes" signals that these guys can indeed jam. And at over 70 minutes, it's a heapin' helping of a bubbling, stick-to-your-ribs musical stew. Get it and enjoy.

John Butler is an amazing musician that has released some incredible c.d's. Sunrise Over Sea is certainly no exception. John Butler's twelve string classical acoustic guitar, slide guitar and banjo are accompanied by a deep sounding double bass and some really catchy drum beats. His lyrics are all meaningful, and even if you can't get into the political side of his songs, you'll still find it hard not to sing along and bob your head to these tunes. If you enjoy Sunrise Over Sea, you'll really enjoy his other c.d.'s.
I recently saw Johnny B perform live and was blown away... If you get the chance to see him live, don't pass it up!
Listen for these songs:
What you want (an extremely moving song- and even more so live!)
Company Sin (exremely catchy lyrics and tune)
Peaches and Cream (a very meaningful song dedicated to his wife & daughter)
Hello (catchy song with a moral!)
If you like John Butler Trio, chances are you'll like Xavier Rudd (another talented Australian guitarist)

The Good

"Treat Yo Mama" has a nice rhythmic bounce to it. Lyrically it throws you a curve ball because it's not about maternal love; it's about loving Mother Earth. The guitar tone in the solo is impressive. A funky bass line, soulful reggae vocals delivery, and simple acoustic lick embody "Company Sin". "Betterman" is a swampy acoustic blues rocker. Soft strings and acoustic chord patterns impose a tender emotional feeling on "What You Want", as do the touching lyrics.

Only faded vocals and a banjo make up the lyrically powerful "Damned to Hell". "Seeing Angels" is a ballad that John Butler wrote about is wife. His lyrical delivery is sincere and the music is poignant. The driving rhythms and commanding vocals of "There'll Come a Time" speaks of how our world will eventually fade away if we continue on our current path. "Mist" is an all-out acoustic/percussion instrumental assault. I picture someone running through the rain forest.

The Bad

Nothing

The Verdict

Sunrise Under Sea is comprised of the John Butler Trio's expressions and views on the environment, spirituality, and love set to an acoustic rock back-beat.

Before I get started, I need to make one thing very clear, and that is that I generally dislike jam bands. When I say that, I don't mean that I'm opposed to their overall artistic goals; after all, the ability to give a compelling live performance is not only a good thing, but it's also gives music pirates a reason to give you money even after they've downloaded your songs. No, what I dislike about jam bands is that most of them have a tendency to play the same style of music (which I can't really describe, which is why I refer to it as "jam band" music), and I just don't like that style.

So when the John Butler Trio was described to me as a "jam band," I was expecting something along the lines of the standard genre-bending Grateful Dead knockoff that played really wimpy soft rock tunes that only sound decent in a live context. Boy was I wrong.

Much like I can't explain why I dislike jam bands, I can't really explain why JBT is different. For some reason, I found their particular mix of rock, folk, country, funk, etc. to be surprisingly accessible. Why? I think it may be the fact that I can actually pick out the distinctive elements of their influences in their music. Where normally jam bands mash genres together until it resembles nothing so much as a homogeneous musical Frankenstein that amounts to little more than an excuse for live improvisation, with the songs on SUNRISE OVER SEA, the average listener (me) is able to appreciate the massive variety that can be contained in a single song without the use of headphones, illicit substances, or live bootlegs for comparison.

It also helps that Butler has a knack for pop songwriting--nearly all of the tunes have that memorable quality that never mutates into stuck-in-your-head annoying.
