Gene Butler Band

GENE BUTLER - SINGER/SONGWRITER

I was born in Macon, Georgia....home to great people and great music. The Allman Brothers, Otis Redding, Little Richard and Jason Aldean are among the musicians who hail from my home town. When I was a small boy I used to see Little Richard, in full make-up, walk the streets near where I live. His mother lived above a liquor store about two blocks from where I lived. Music was all around me and I tried as hard as I could to be around all the music. I think Gospel music in the black churches had the biggest influence on me. I would sit outside several of the black churches, as close to the doors as possible, and listen to their Sunday services. When their choir sung and the church-goers joined in, I was lifted so high that I knew, even at the age of eight, that this was about as high as the human soul could get while still on this earth. Since then I've strived to sing what I hear and write what I feel.
