Phil Butta is one of New York's hidden wonders. His writing is deep and meaningful on one hand ... while it touches and stirs the heart with tender, emotional words of passion, respect, sadness and joy, honor, and strength.

Phil's voice has a natural, conversational manner to it ...drawing the listener in like in a living room or cozy cafe. He is a multi-talented musician: certainly a strong guitarist ... scorching solos, fluid acoustics ... and bright, structured piano and keyboards. He credits guys like Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield for his roots and favors the tone of Joe Bonamassa or Eric Johnson ... all combines to reflect a playing style quite distinctive and reminiscent of Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd) or Frank Carillo.

Scott Walleck, Phil's longtime friend and band mate, handled drums on most of the CD as John McCormick built the bottom with his bass guitar ... backing vocals and organ (You Got The Right).. Michael Partish added piano to Get Right Church and I Know You Rider. Joe Forte played bass on Look At Me. Frank Ricevuto kicks the beat on drums for the opening track Get Right Church. Frank, John, and Michael are the rythmn section for THE PROGRESSIONS ... Phil's performing band.

Songs like: Reds, In Vitro, Look at me, Inside Out ...speak the language of determination, endurance, fighting back and looking forward. Who can argue with the hopes and dreams of ""In Vitro" as the yet-to-be born child asks mother what to expect ... then assures with the phrase "Like a wind that refuses to die - I will always be there by your side"...powerful words that capture the universal fear of the future ... going it alone. "Texas" tells the true story of Phil re-connecting with his mother after 50 years! An amazing testament to the power of social media.

"Look at me" is the return to hometown story. I was here. It got tough and I took off. I did good and got it together. Now I'm back. Who hasn't gone through this life adventure. Who hasn't fallen down and struggled to get back? Another of life's twists and turns. "You Got the Right; Distant Boy; Inside Out" are Phil's love songs ... sorta (lol) ... they let it go, bring it back, and make it right ... all without caving in or giving up.

"Waiting for The Rain" was written initially as a poem when Phil's friend, Lynn, was diagnosed with cancer. It speaks of encouragement and hope... optimism and reality. A true prayer for the soul ... this song is tearful in it's honesty and comforting in it's vision. The music was written for Theresa ... a friend who struggles with her own challenges ... forever fighting the good fight and remaining positive and determined even during the most trying episodes of debilitating illness ... she is strong and cheerful ... an example to be followed. This song is a lesson for all of us who struggle with life at times ... feeling alone and hopeless. The beauty comes in the later verses ... when you "turn your head toward horizon's light and keep the daylight in your sight."

If you've ever been to an open mic"... "The Singer" is the story of Amanda. A regular singer, a young mother. Such a nice person. Now ... "Г¤ shadow passing by."

Meanwhile ... party deep with "No One's Perfect"... a kicking tune gonna make you jump and shout! The relax with a little "Morphine" (the musical kind if you please!)

The two songs not written by Phil Butta "Get Right Church" 'and "ГЏ Know You Rider" were selected to showcase the musicianship and drive of Phil's band ... THE PROGRESSIONS ... who tour locally in New York.
