(Louisville, KY )
Butch Rice sings of the colors of love and loss. The overwhelming desire, the hope, and the ache. Butch Rice understands. Raised in Louisville, KY, His soulful acoustic pop fills the air with themes with which each of us can identify. With every melody, the heartstrings resound as if his acoustic guitar has been handled by one too many, left slightly bruised and worn, but stronger in character and warmer in sound. His rich falsetto radiates warmth, adding powerful depth to each heartfelt word he sings.
Rice has shared the stage with such artists as Edwin McCain, Augustana, David Mead, Shawn Mullins, Erin McKeown, Matthew Ryan, Vanessa Carlton. He has been honored by ASCAP, Performing Songwriter magazine, and the Kentucky Arts Council. Rice has stuck to his path and developed into one of the most unique singer-songwriters of his era, all the while developing a following who eagerly take to heart his melodic stories in song.
If music is the tale of our emotions, our lives, then Butch Rice is one of our truest narrators. Sit back, listen, and embrace each moment.
