The MTV videos “Life Takes A Life,” “Wishes,” “Holy War” and “Goodbye Saving Grace” were the beginnings of Jon Butcher’s recording/touring and television career that continues to this day. In addition to touring with J. Geils Band in 1982, Butcher's media music production company, Electric Factory Music has provided film music score, soundtrack and music licensing for television and film companies looking for something unique since 1993. The Jon Butcher Axis album, “Jon Butcher Axis,” reached number 21 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart and the Jon Butcher Axis' video "Life Takes a Life" became one of the first videos by a black rock artist featured on MTV. Butcher’s upcoming projects include the return of The Jon Butcher Axis, including a new AXIS CD release and live shows during Spring/Summer of 2013. Jon's “Two Roads East” solo tour will also take place during 2013.
For a time in the early 80s it looked like as if Jon Butcher's career would know no bounds. As anyone who picked up a copy of the self-titled Jon Butcher Axis album upon its original release in 1983 would concur, here was a star on the rise. Such an upwards trajectory was well deserved given his undeniable talent, the quality of that debut and the ensuing sophomore affair "Stare At The Sun". Indeed both albums should have resulted in greater rewards than they ultimately did at the time. Although Jon would enjoy a good deal of recognition for later recorded work, such as "Wishes" (released under his own name rather than the band handle), perhaps the answer to any questions that are asked over Butcher's lack of bigger and more sustained success may be allied to the one that asks why it has taken well over thirty years for his first two records to be officially released on CD? Sure, several of the best tracks from both albums have surfaced on compilations of Jon’s work but never before has either album been issued on its entirety on a silver shiny disc. That is about to change ...Jon had an obsession with the guitar from age 5 and his first real band was called Johanna Wild, a band that certainly caught the attention of many people, his influences including BB King, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy. Notable tracks from the first album include "Ocean In Motion" and "Walk Like This". This album reached #91 in the Billboard pop album charts and Axis' video "Life Takes A Life" became one of the first videos by a black artist to receive airtime on MTV. At that time, the only two black artists enjoying MTV coverage were The Jon Butcher Axis and Michael Jackson. The result of his success afforded further growing popularity for the band, which added the opportunity to tour with Rush (the Signals tour '83), Def Leppard (the Pyromania tour '83) and Scorpions (the Hurricane tour '84) amongst others.Jon Butcher has an undeniable talent and this 10 track album from the classic early eighties era shows just what this man had to offer. Timeless ...
