Reuben Butchart (Boo-shárt) is a singer-songwriter whose clear and pure voice 
has garnered comparisons to Chet Baker and Stevie Wonder – by turns both s
oothingly delicate and triumphantly powerful.  The Advocate describes  Reuben’s 
music as “an ever-shifting landscape of breezy strings, rumbling bass lines, 
ivory-soul vocals, and quirky rhythms, all framing tense lyrics that seek – and 
find – the light.”   Blending together classic American pop and 70's soul 
with today's avant/indie influences, Reuben shapes the singer songwriter form 
into a unique blend of soul-tinged chamber-pop.

 "[A] Great voice and fine tunesmithing....the arrangements are truly 
hand-in-glove and proportionately faultless" raves legendary producer and arranger 
Van Dyke Parks.

Reuben originally entered New York's downtown performance scene as pianist 
for Antony and the Johnsons.  While playing with Antony, Reuben worked on his 
own debut album “Dusk” with co-producer, guitarist, and bassist Steve Bagley. 
 This release garnered Reuben an Outmusic award for Outstanding Debut Recording 
as well as features and reviews in publications around the country.

Born in San Francisco, Reuben was educated in alternative public schools that 
focused on diversity, humanism, individuality, and creativity – all splendid 
ideals of 70's San Francisco.   He then studied composition, arranging, and 
the Classic texts at New York University. Reuben also immersed himself in the 
East Village club scene to partake in the colorful spectacle of do-it-yourself 
oddities and legendary avant-garde performers. These experiences have shaped 
Reuben's sound first hand.

“Reuben is a masterful song-writer in the tradition of Donny Hathaway and 
Stevie Wonder. His voice is uncannily pure.”  - Antony of Antony & The Johnsons

Reuben is available for interviews and bookings.
