In 1998 John Butler was busking on the streets of Fremantle, West Australia. 3500 self funded cassette sales served as the foundation for becoming Australia's most successful independent artist ever. Fast forward to 2011 and his label Jarrah Records has now been responsible for one million sales in Australia. Home to other artists such as The Waifs, Jarrah Records continues to pave the way for independent artists in Australia.
Butler owns and operates his own record label- Jarrah Records�" which has released the John Butler Trio’s last five studio albums, two live albums, two DVD’s and his first self titled album. 2003’s ‘Sunrise Over Sea’ was the first independently released album to reach number one in Australia, and, like the band’s fourth album ‘Grand National’, went on to enjoy multi-platinum success. In 2010 John Butler released the trio’s fifth studio album ‘April Uprising’ this was the band’s third consecutive album to debut at number one on the national Australian ARIA album charts.
JBT have taken their music to the world and continue to grow in stature and popularity in USA, Europe and Japan. They have become favourites at iconic festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival, Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Big Day Out, and Coachella where Bruce Fessier of USA Today said "John Butler revealed himself to be arguably the finest guitarist at Coachella Festival". The John Butler Trio are thrilled to have played many European festivals and delivered main stage performances at New Orleans Jazz Festival and Lollapalooza.
