GUY BUTTERY ALBUM LAUNCH (article first published : 2005-08-20)

Guy Buttery, South African Music Awards youngest ever nominee for his debut album When I Grow Up... (Best Instrumental, Best Newcomer 2003), returns with his unbelievable follow-up album, Songs from the Cane Fields.

Guy has documented an ambitious collection of 12 newly recorded songs. As a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, he has embraced his homely surroundings of the lush KwaZulu-Natal rolling cane fields, to springboard a diary of instrumental gems.

The music tells a story of an unbounded freedom, where the landscape meets the Indian Ocean. The inspiration clearly speaks of anguish from days gone by, the unleashed joy of new beginnings and the spirit of travel along ancient African footpaths.

The diversity of song, from the Indian-induced Nectarina Amethystina played on sitar to the poignant self portrait guitar virtuosity of I Feel Like I'm Standing in the Rain is a work of remarkable maturity from this musician who is still only 21.

Guy followed up the release of his highly acclaimed debut album with many successful shows, festivals and invited performances across the country. The national success of his first release captured the attention of the South African music industry as well as performers and music lovers alike.

The new album will be launched at the NSA Gallery, featuring many of South Africa’s top musicians [Nibs van der Spuy, Angus Kerr & Barry Corden] who appear as guest artists on the album. This unique evening will be an instrumental awakening, taking you on a journey through the heart and soul of one of South Africa's most talented, creative minds and musicians.

The launch will take place on August 21 at 18h00 at the KZNSA Gallery, 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood. Entrance R30. More information on 031 201 9969 or e-mail: buttery@iafrica.com
