About The Jon Butcher Axis

Grammy-nominated Jon Butcher is one of a select handful of influential recording artists comprising the legendary Boston music scene. MTV videos and hit songs, “Life Takes A Life” ,”Wishes”, “Holy War”, “Goodbye Saving Grace”, and “Waiting For A Miracle” comprise the underpinnings of a music career that continues today. Jon Butcher's signature sound and particularly his guitar work represent a skillful mix of Americana- rock, r&b, jazz and folk, all of it focused through a prism built from the blues.

The year was 1981 and The Jon Butcher Axis (Jon Butcher, Chris Martin & Derek Blevins) had taken the Boston music scene by storm. WBCN was playing their songs while the band performed to sold out audiences at iconic venues such as The Channel, The Paradise and others. Their big break came when the week after Christmas, they got the nod to open for the mighty J. Geils band on a short run of dates throughout the Northeast. A month later the Geils Band called again, this time with an invite to do the North American leg of the Freeze Frame tour, highlighted by three sold out Boston Garden shows (all while the band had no record deal and no booking agent).
