Jon Butcher

Today’s guest deejay is Jon Butcher.

Jon is a Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, guitarist, and multimedia producer.

Jon recently released his album, Special Day, which features 10 songs that include blues, jazz, funk, soul, reggae, and rock n roll. Each song is indelibly marked by Jon’s signature sound.

Each episode of Genius and Soul is special, but today’s show is significant to me because Jon’s music was part of the soundtrack of my years Boston. He was part of the our local scene even as he was touring the country.

On today’s show, Jon shares the living history of jazz and blues through the songs he has selected for his mix. These songs are not just essential listening, they are Jon’s own soundtrack to who he is as a man, and as an artist.

Join us next week when our guest deejay will be writer, DJ and sample-flipper John Morrison .
