WARREN BUTLER

Sparky's Story


Sparky the Bass Player

Picked up my dad's guitar at 10 years old and was raised on Waylon, Pink Floyd, and Steely Dan. After returning home from the military, I went to play bass for Sons of Saturn, an original, hard, psychedelic band. After breaking up, I took a long hiatus before answering an ad for a rock bassist in Open 5th where Artie Artrip was the drummer. I found my style grew from hard, psychedelic rock into the outlaw, country-roots style I play for today. While me and Artie were searching for a more southern, patriotic, and meaningful sound, we came across Donny Wagers and Steve Colonel forming the current lineup of WARREN BUTLER, America's working-class band.
