The Button Band is a new project from top London based Guitarist Andrew Button and showcases Andrew’s highly personal writing style. Distinctly British lyrical jazz with folk and country influences drawing inspiration from Bill Frisell, John Scofield, Loose Tubes, Brad Shepic, and PigFoot. The band’s eponymous debut album was released in 2014 to critical acclaim followed by an Arts Council supported UK-wide tour. The band are back in the studio in May 2016 to record their second album.
