New to the scene but no fresh-cut amateur, Ethan Butler, A singer/songwriter from Chicago who blends acoustic pop with undertones of Jazz, R&B, Alternative, and Folk, gives you a colorful taste of what's next for the music industry.Born and raised on the west side of Chicago in the Austin Community, Ethan is one of five children born to Charles and Donna Butler. His dad, a music pastor for more than half of Ethan's life, was and is a huge influence into the man and artist Ethan is today. Growing up surrounded by musicians and singers, Ethan soaked it all up like a sponge, but didn't show any true interest until he received his first guitar on his 13th Birthday. It didn't take long for the music to start pouring out; he realized that he had a desire to write and perform and that his potential was endless. So, several months later, Ethan pulls a small band together to perform the very first song that he wrote and composed, at the Armitage Baptist Church's All-Church-Sing and Talent Show. Since then Ethan has performed within the church in a number of ways, including conferences, retreats, and even traveling international to Central and South America where he has spent over 6 months.Fastforward eleven years and Ethan revisits Armitage Baptist Church, January 2013, by putting a concert of two, forty-five minute sets of original music, with a draw of about 300. But Ethan didn't stop there. He then ventured outside of the church walls to break into mainstream music. He first started off by jumping into the open mic scene at places like Uncommon Ground and The Elbo Room followed by headlining at similar venues and Mayne Stage. but now Ethan has taken things a step further and dares to dream big by Auditioning for Season 7 of NBC's hit show, THE VOICE, and securing him a spot on Team Adam. He's a young man, with drive, a vision, and a deep rooted passion that won't give him the luxury of quitting. He dares to live his life bigger and better than he ever thought possible, and wants to share his life and story with you. Because to Ethan, your not just a fan, You're family.
