‘There's been a buzz building about this bloke as a genuine, unaffected singer-songwriter. He put on a great showcase at BIGSOUND in Brisbane recently.....Butcher's voice is smooth and beguiling.....there's a genuine intensity to it and signs of an agile mind feeding it.....he has plenty to say. Butcher is also musically agile, 'Speed Of Sound' delivering a portentous energy driven by an incessant bass line and shards of angular electric guitar’ Martin Jones Rhythms Magazine


‘Brad Butcher has the potential to achieve considerable critical acclaim and commercial success...he has already attracted the attention of key media tastemakers including the pivotal Australian national radio station - Triple J.'
