Sweet Release


In mid 2010, Corey's long time friend, drummer Terrance Ballard started organizing a way to record a new album from multiple locations in the US. With this vision in mind, Corey was put in contact with Cedric Theys. And Corey Butler’s second album came to fruition. It is a mix of upbeat songs as well as soothing melodic pieces.

Sweet Release is Corey's second opus. Everything was recorded in house in a very relaxing environment. After a short time with the music, Cedric was able to lay down just the right bass lines for every song. Terrance Ballard is back in full force on drums and percussion and to wrap up the album, Terrance found a violinist for Corey. Sarah Husbands went into the studio to add what was completely unexpected and give some of the songs a new melodic perspective. The end result is an album with wonderful structure, vocal warmth, complex percussion and drums, jazzy bass lines and a sweet melody to top things off.

This album has two tones depending on your mood; an energetic vibe with the full band playing the songs and a mellow version of B sides with Corey playing the songs acoustically giving you that intimate feel.
