Kate Butler has a long standing love affair with the local music scene. At the ripe age of 7 she decided she wanted to be a journalist. Her love affair with writing continued and grew when she became immersed in the local Saint John music scene at age 15 through writing, photography and volunteering, often a means to see her favourite bands.
She moved to Fredericton to complete her undergrad studying media and communications where she began to realize the journalism role was not for her. She immersed herself in the Fredericton music community working at local live music venues and completed her Masters in Communications in 2014.
Over the past several years her work has steered her towards various projects and contracts with The Capital Complex, Shivering Songs Festival, Tide and Boar Gastro Pub, Forward Music Group and New Brunswick musicians including The Hypochondriacs, Penny Blacks, Janowskii, CHIPS and Tortoise the Hare & the Millionaire.
She Said Feck Records represents pop/punk 4 piece CHIPS and blues/rock trio The Tortoise the Hare & the Millionaire. CHIPS are currently in post production of two new singles with accompanying videos to follow in the Spring ‘19. The Tortoise the Hare and the Millionaire recent EP has remained in the top of the CHSR radio charts for 38 weeks since it’s release in October 18 and will have a busy summer touring with summer music festivals and around Atlantic Canada.
