Pop-rock Philly musician Tim Butler brings his guitar to Up Close And Acoustic to play some of his jangly and hooky songs. He talks about making records in the digital age, the producers he's worked with and how he puts all those lush harmonies together. Read the full description.

Tim_butler_small Singer-songwriter Tim Butler recently unveiled "All The Rest", his third solo release. It is a continuation of his craft of writing songs with great pop-sense, singability and endless hooks to please the ears. The CD features a wonderful combination of brand new songs along with a few older songs that were never officially released. From beggining to end "All The Rest" appears to be Butler's best work yet!
