Butch Rice – reviews

"Lush with sweet heartbreak, the raw emotions and romantic vocals of Butch Rice's ACOUSTIC POP will make you remember why you fell in love with the music in the first place."
– Victoria Moon

"Rice's honesty and vocal inflections make it clear he feels every single word on his album; consequently, so does the listener. "
Kevin Gibson
   Louisville Eccentric Observer


"I get dozens of demos and CD's in the mail weekly…This disc grabbed my attention in a big way. The simplicity is what makes it so perfect. I would recommend this disc to anybody."
David Hooper

"Butch Rice explores emotions heart first, honestly with conviction."

"This album is living proof that some of the best music out there today is not coming from the big monolithic mega-labels, but insteadfrom the smaller independent labels like ear X-tacy…Butch Rice is the real thing. Do yourself some good and buy this CD."
Joel Timothy

"…a strong presence on Louisville's original-music scene as a solo acoustic performer. His angst-prone songs, many of which center on love that is troubled, lost, or otherwise screwed up, are naturals for such intimate conditions."
Jeffrey Lee Puckett
    The Courier-Journal


"There are honest, mature pop songs available with lyrics strengthened with true emotions, sung with a richness that flows like warm silver under your skin. You'll find a baker's dozen of such tender mercies in ACOUSTIC POP…it's not the kind of recording you simply listen to. You languish in it."
