QUICK BIO
A life well lived is often the best foundation for compelling art and there's no denying Jonathan Butler has been blessed with a fascinating life. A South African native whose expansive musical gift has earned accolades in the R&B, contemporary jazz and gospel fields, Butler's new release Grace and Mercy is filled with the soulful sounds and insightful lyrics fans have come to expect from the veteran performer.

A key word in Butler's life is balance and after years of touring the globe, he's learned just how important time away from the spotlight can be. "These days I try to do a little bit of living in between. I balance my life," he shares. "I've got to spend time living, and through living you come up with stories to talk about and songs to write. These songs are personal experiences. People always assume that because you're a recording artist and you travel the world that you don't have problems and you don't have disappointments in your life, which is not true. We all do. This album truthfully and honestly lets people know that the songs that I'm writing are the things that I'm going through in this season. I'm hoping those songs will effect people in a positive and wonderful way."
