Mark Butcher & The Allusions. An intoxicating blend of blues, rock & soul.
Playing songs from their recent album ‘Now Playing’, tracks from the debut ‘Songs From The Sun House’ and a few surprises.
 

On 5 July 2019, Mark Butcher, best known for his highly successful career in cricket, will release his self-penned second album entitled ‘Now Playing’ via Man In The Moon Records. The thirteen-track album, available on CD, Vinyl, Download as well as all major streaming services, also features the brilliant new single ‘Country’ which precedes the album by a week. Mark is due to tour the album this summer with his band.

‘Now Playing’ follows Mark Butcher’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Songs from the Sun House’ which was inspired by his experiences of life, love and loss. The new set takes on a wider view and a tougher sound, though human stories are still a central part. As Butcher explains; “The songs are a reflection of the times we are living in, though optimism is never too far below the surface! They are about humans; the glorious screw-ups that we are & the doubting saviours we can be.”

It’s worth paying attention when the legendary Eric Clapton says “great stuff!“ about anyone’s music, and Mark Butcher not only bowled him over but has since found fans in many other spheres. Since retiring from professional cricket, Mark has become an expert commentator and pundit on Sky Sports, talkSport, TMS and various overseas broadcasters, along with focussing on his love for music. A skilled guitarist and vocalist, Mark has also written, recorded, and performed around the UK & Europe as a member of UK Blues Supergroup, The Boom Band; sung duets with Sarah Brightman on the BBC, and traded licks with Albert Lee and Bill Wyman at the Royal Albert Hall.
