Jonathan Butler knows a thing or two about playing the guitar…and we’re not talking about air guitar! On SO STRONG, his 15th solo recording, Butler comes through with 12 great songs that speak fun, flavor and feeling. The songs reflect Butler’s romantic side, his passionate side and his fun side and once you listen to “Factual,””Feels So Good,” and “Good Times,” you’ll hear for yourself that Butler is exactly what this CD is about – being strong.
He makes that special light turn on for you when you hear “So Strong,” his heartfelt rendering of the pain, sorrow and personal loss that he has endured recently. Joined by special guests Rick Braun, Dave Koz, Michael Lington, and Angie Stone, such songs as “Feels So Good,” “Make Room For Me,” and “Be Here With You,” wipe away the darker side of life and uplift you with a get-up-and-dance feel good rhythms. Butler’s guitar chops are all good and this is definitely one of his best recordings to date.
