John R. Butler is a Southwest Florida musician/singer/songwriter/forward-slash user. Gross Exaggeration Monthly magazine called him "perhaps the most important songsmith of his--and any other--generation." Butler has played on stages before thousands of audience members all over the country...just before having been ejected by security, in order that the scheduled acts could get started. Butler's 13-year-old dog Robbie travels with him throughout the U.S., basically because he has no other choice. Butler loves puppies, sunsets, sharing and caring and all that other romantic crap.
