Welcome to the first episode in the second volume of Summer Beat. In this episode, host Kylee Roberts (aka, me) sits down with the founders of Butter, a Funk band that works to incorporate loving sounds to all of it's listeners starting in Ithaca.
On almost every occasion I've walked into the house we recorded in and music was playing; whether it was a live cello strumming or a recorded Stevie Wonder melody from the speakers. There's something about the comfy couches, tapestry-covered ceiling and the projector on the wall of their living room that gives the college student filled house that vibe. I've known Jonah and Nicky since high school through acquaintances and was happy to get to know them a lot more as we ended up at the same college. Therefore, covering Butter was a little more on the personal side because seeing musicians jam to what feels right has a special place in my heart.
On this episode you'll hear four of six band members talk to Kylee: Jonah Bobo, Tom Brody, Dunham Hall and Nicky Young.
