Singer/songwriter Butch Rice sings of all the colors of love and loss. Rice understands all the overwhelming desires of the heart. Raised in Louisville, Ky., his soulful acoustic pop fills the air with easily identifiable themes. 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.
Having shared the stage with the talented artists Edwin McCain, Augustana, David Mead, Shawn Mullins, Matthew Ryan and Vanessa Carlton, and 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.
