Jasmin Butler

Jasmin Butler is a songwriter and guitarist who’s music is is often described alt-folk pop/rock. Jasmin draws from a wide base of influences, at the ‘poppier’ end you’ll find songwriters such as Yann Tiersen, Nick Drake and Laura Viers, at the ‘rockier’ end you’ll find Neil Young and Elliott Smith, among others.

Overarching themes for Jasmin as a writer are exploring melody and descriptive or narrative lyric writing, with a particular interest in the process of recording and how a song can change, develop and build.

After many years of writing songs and playing lead guitar in a number of bands, Jasmin has chosen to undertake an MA in Songwriting at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance starting this Autumn and now performs regularly with a second guitarist in and around London.
