Butch Zito from Glen Cove, NY......Songs are a mix of many genre's of music, mostly in the "Americana" vein.
Working on two projects, "Three Chords and the Truth" (Solo) and "Roll Them Bones" with (Stackabones)
Live Shows can be anything from Singer songwriter, Jamband or Bluegrass (otherwise know as Butchie Grass).
I cut my teeth in Austin, Texas back in '81 - '85. Great experience, our first (Stackabones) recording was used for warm-up music for the Grateful Dead @ Manor Downs, Texas show in '83. Same (Burned on Love) recording ended up on Commercial Playlist. Texas to California tour and everywhere in between landed us as opener for Canned Heat in Santa Cruz. signed with Relix Records soon after....
East Coast beckoned and here I am in Wilmington, Delaware. Good to me to say the least. Been invited on stage by Pete Seegar & Michele Shocked, Townes Van Zant Jammed with David Bromeberg,
Awarded 2014 Delaware Dept. of Arts Fellowship for Established Artists.
Shared the Bill with:

Currently completing a solo CD called "Three Chords and the Truth", in the throws of Stackabones Album called "Roll Them Bones".
Trying my hand at some Singer Songwriter Shows.....whole different animal but fun. It gives me a chance to talk about the songs and all that goes with it.
