Adelaide-borned, Nashville, Tennessee-based singer Butterfly Boucher (her real name, apparently) flitted into our lives in 2003 with her debut album Flutterby and the gorgeous, zany pop ditty ‘I Can’t Make Me’. Scoring props from the likes of David Bowie, Madonna and Sarah McLachlan, it was a glowing start for Boucher but sadly, strife within her label saw her follow up record Scary Fragile sit on the shelf until 2009, crippling any momentum.
Come 2012, and it’s no surprise Butterfly is soaring sans label these days, marking her new-found independence with a new self-titled album out in April. It continues her formula of smart, sassy, slightly wacky pop but advances the equation with a new-found sense of fun and maturity. “While making this record, I found that child-like joyful to creating music again, which I’d been craving,” she revealed about album number three.
