New York's Reuben Butchart is a singer-songwriter whose clear and pure voice has garnered comparisons to Chet Baker and Stevie Wonder – by turns both delicate and powerful.

Reuben’s musically diverse influences blend together classic pop and 70's soul with today’s indie influences, shaping the singer-songwriter form into a blend of soul-tinged chamber-pop.

While studying composition in college, Reuben immersed himself in the colorful East Village spectacle of oddities.

He entered the downtown scene as pianist for Antony & The Johnsons, while completing his own debut album “Dusk.” A blend of electronic samples, R&B flourishes, and strings, “Dusk” received the 2003 Outmusic award for Outstanding Debut.

His second album “Golden Boy,” co-produced with Noah Simon (Bill Frisell, Greta Gertler, Susan Tedeschi), is a collection of lushly orchestrated alternative soul gems and mid-tempo art ballads that thematically harken back to his days growing up in Northern California.
