In a time where America is wonderfully consumed (and sometimes obsessed) with self-sustaining culture and all-things-authentic, I’m not surprised this finally happened: a documentary on Butch Walker. Despite his day job of producer/songwriter for radio wonders (Weezer, Pink, Panic at the Disco), he has continued to write, record and tour successfully on his own as an independent artist. He’s never come close to the stadium success of his clients – hell, he is commercially unknown to even passionate music fans – but that doesn’t stop him from putting out record after record. Getting back in the van. Not giving up on his quest to be one of the few constants in the every-turbulent music business.
In a world of monster egos and glossy trends, he continues to do his damnedest to keep it real. And it looks like this documentary is going to beautifully show that. I can’t wait to watch it.
