Charles Butler on SoundBetter

I'm a banjo player living and working in Nashville, TN. I have a humble home studio where I run Logic and track with a pair of Neumann KM184s mics and a Grace m201mk2 preamp. Let's make some music!

    Charles is an excellent banjo player with a true passion for the instrument. This time he created a Duelling Banjos-type riff. Highly recommended!

    Charles is the best in the west, or the east? I'm not sure where he's from but he's such a pleasure to work with. I will most definitely be working with him again in the near future.

    Needed a banjo part for an instrumental piece I've been working on. Sent over the song, lead sheet, and some notes... Charles had a perfect take back to me in just a few days. Thanks so much! I would highly recommend hiring him for your recording.

    Charles is awesome. He recorded a banjo part for an original song and captured the feels and essence of the song beautifully. Great communication with Charles and he was always very responsive. A real pro!

    Charles is the best! His musicality is something you'd look for in any musician. Incredible banjo track! I will be working with him again for sure.

    I worked with Charles on a banjo track and video. He responded quickly and we were able to get the project done smoothly. He delivered four different video versions, which I've never received before from another provider. I really appreciate him going the extra mile like this, as it makes it easier for me. I'd work with Charles anytime and will definitely contact him again for future projects.
