John Butler Trio

Established in Fremantle, Western Australia, 1998

There can be no democracy without the freedom of creative expression.- John Butler

John Butler started his musical career as a street performer in Western Australia. In 1996 he self-recorded his first cassette with Gavin Shoesmith on double bass and bass guitar, Grant Smith on percussion, and Mark Hoffman on didgeridoo-a wind instrument. Finally, in 1998 John Butler Trio was formed in Fremantle. Their newly establish band toured across Western Austrailia in 1999 where Butler would soon meet his future soul mate and wife Danielle Caruana.
