John Butler has new hair, a new band and a new album "April Uprising" on the way. The new band is Melbourne musician Nicky Bomba as the new drummer and percussionist. Nicky has been a prominent member of the Melbourne music scene with his band Bomba and is a prolific songwriter, performer and producer in his own right. Nicky was also the principle drummer on JBT’s five times platinum album ‘Sunrise Over Sea’. Sydney musician Byron Luiters will feature as the new bass player. Byron is a talented dynamic bassist who has been a member of the Sydney outfit Ray Mann Three. John, Nicky and Byron commenced recording of the new studio album earlier this month and are thrilled with progress so far. Had a chance to see some new live material earlier in the year and it was very good. Very pumped for some new material from JBT!
