about

M. Butterfly is from Brighton, UK. For the past decade he has traded in heartfelt songs about depression, masculinity, queerness (M is openly Bisexual), and protest. Taking influence from hardened legends such as Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch and John Prine, cult underground artists such as Vic Chesnutt, Low and Sparklehorse and literary giants such as Sylvia Plath, James Baldwin, Yukio Mishima and Leonard Cohen, M crafts songs that are highly lyrical and poetic, whilst holding on to a sparse sense of tradition. Live performances are often met with a silent and attentive audience, allowing M’s strong lyrics to fill the room. M plays regularly in Brighton, and has had the good fortune of supporting Phoebe Bridgers, Nadia Reid, Jess Williamson and Brighton contemporaries Squid. M has released 4 albums, recorded to tape on a 4-track, usually at home or in the home of a producer, giving his albums a raw, lo-fi sound that is as intimate as it is vulnerable. He has also self published a book of poetry.
