All of the fascinating elements of Rosemary Butler’s Rock & Roll filled life condense into one mega-musical experience on her latest studio production, You Just Watch Me. The album is jam-packed with ten songs that explore and present her classic sound with the help of her long-time friends Kenny Loggins, Jackson Browne, and more. The album will take you on a classic-rock/Americana tour throughout the American South-West with each song and every listen. The further that Rosemary dives into her solo career, the more fans are taking notice of this vocal powerhouse.
You Just Watch Me combines the creative efforts of Rosemary Butler and a group of talented A-List artists with the help of a seasoned first-rate backing band. All of their contributions combine to take the listener on a veritable road trip of moving ballads, rockin’ blues tunes, and a little funk to boot. Lap steel guitars, pianos, organs, mandolins, guitars, basses and many other instruments (including tuba!), grace this album with their presence and gives it that truly American feel. Released by Rock Cellar Media Group, the album starts with a driving drum beat and bluesy guitar on the album’s title track “You Just Watch Me” with Rosemary’s vocals gracing the track with a “You-can’t-stop-this-woman” attitude. The single “That’s When I Find You” is a downright delightful duet that finds Rosemary accompanied by the legendary Kenny Loggins. The track starts with a funky organ and drum duet that soon has the rest of the band and Kenny jumping in resulting in the sounds of a full choir. Rosemary then contributes her own powerful vocal solo on the next verse. The two talented voices bounce, blend and play with each other on the rest of the track. Another stand out track, “Travel My Love” features Jackson Browne on backing vocals. Rosemary Butler also puts her own twist on the Tina Turner classic “What’s Love Got To Do With It” turning it into more of a vulnerable ballad. You Just Watch Me was produced by Rosemary, alongside Michael Stern and Kevin Wachs.
The blue-eyed mistress of Rock & Roll has always been a musical individual to watch out for. She was taught how to sing, play piano and read music as a young child and took every musical opportunity that was thrown her way. Rosemary would often sneak off into the local Fender Guitar plant near her childhood home and learn all about guitars and how to play them. This knowledge allowed her to form her first band, “The Ladybirds” in high school that ended up opening for The Rolling Stones. Her second all-female band, Birtha, was also met with critical acclaim and came out with two hit albums on ABC-Dunhill Records and opened for acts such as Fleetwood Mac, The Who, and BB King.
Rosemary Butler has carved out a legendary career as a singer for many A-list artists like Kenny Loggins, Jackson Browne, Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, and many others. Her life as a vocalist has taken her all over the world, from the U.S. and Canada, to Europe, Australia, South America, Russia and the Middle East. Rosemary has along lent her teaching abilities to UCLA as well as being a sought after vocal coach for artist such as Bette Midler, Hilary Duff, Rick Springfield, and more.
Rosemary Butler’s successful career has included performances at The Grammys, The Super Bowl and President Clinton’s Inauguration. Her new album, You Just Watch Me proves that she doesn’t plan on leaving the music scene anytime soon. Her voice is the most infectious feature on the whole album and only adds to her profound musical genius. “I’m gonna steal your heart, and make you mine,” sings Rosemary on the title track. She’ll not only steal your affections, but she’ll steal your desire to listen to anything other than her new record. You Just Watch Me is now available on iTunes and through Rock Cellar Media Group.
