Genre – Country

Mike Butler is a country artist from Toronto and released his self-titled EP in May of 2013. He worked with many people in the industry to make this EP come together including Juno nominee Douglas Romanow (Chantal Kreviazuk), Mark Ineo (The Tenors), and Kevin Fox (Sarah McLaughlin). This six song release has a fun, upbeat country sound.

On the album there are those “typical” country songs about the singers truck (or in this case a Honda) like “A Set Of Keys”, and about loving going to the local bar and having a few beers, like “Seven Beers Deep”. However, Butler writes humorous lyrics like in the song “My First Time”, which is about what you imagine it’s about.

Overall I like the EP and look forward to what Butler does next. The vocals are smooth and the instrumental parts of the songs are easy to listen to and enjoy. The upbeat rhythm will improve your mood should you feel down, and is easy to dance to should you also want to enjoy a few beers.

Rating: 4/5
