"Remember the thrill you got when you first listened to JJ Cale or Mark Knopfler? That feeling is back!" Audiogrid.com

"He has a voice that captivates an audience completely, weaving a delightful message lyrically that sends the listener down a long, dusty road or beside the still waters of a Canadian lake. His guitar work is effortless and the notes that resonate from the strings are an integral part of each of his compositions, painting pictures for the listener. Butterill is a timeless classic with his latest offering Troubadour Tales." --Brent Jeffries, The Sun Times, Owen Sound, ON; Soundwaves - Georgian Bay Folk Society

that haunts you like a heavy fog on a barren field on a cool October morning."   Bob Egan - Pedal Steel - Blue Rodeo, Wilco
