Fingerprints Music

Before he heads off on his West Coast Spring Tour, Rayland Baxter will be coming to perform and sign albums at Fingerprints this February 3rd at 6pm. You can attend this special performance by purchasing If I Were A Butterfly (ATO Records) - available on CD and Clear LP.  Purchasing the album from our website will add your name to our RSVP list for the show. 

 

If I Were A Butterfly is the fourth studio album from Rayland Baxter. The album examines loss and existential ruminations on happiness and freedom and was completed in the wake of his father, the legendary Bucky Baxter’s (Bob Dylan’s longtime pedal steel player and member of Steve Earle’s Dukes) passing. His late father appears on the album along with a host of collaborators including Shakey Graves, Zac Cockrell of Alabama Shakes, members of Cage the Elephant, Lennon Stella, Morning Teleportation’s Travis Goodwin, and legendary Motown drummer Miss Bobbye Hall, among many others. 

Rayland Baxter holed up for over a year at a former rubber-band factory in the Kentucky countryside - living in a barn with the squirrels and the birds. "I just waited for the record to build itself. I’d get up and go outside, see a butterfly and connect that with some impulsive thought I’d had three months ago and suddenly a song I’d been working on would make sense.” Baxter co-produced If I Were A Butterfly slowly piecing together the album’s patchwork of lush psychedelia and Beatlesesque pop.
