Local artist Karmen Buttler just released her album, Daze of Love. The result is a compilation of slow singer-songwriter songs that feature Buttler’s smooth, soft voice, and a simple and elegant sound. It’s difficult to find an artist who truly masters the modest nature of having a guitar, a mic, and their voice. However, Buttler navigates the crux perfectly, seeming to shine above the masses of singer-songwriters who fill café open mics.
The honest truth is, there’s not much to it. It’s bare boned. It’s not intricate. But that makes it all the better, creating a tasteful, exquisite sound. Songs like “Blue Little Bird” and “Winter” use the simplicity to holistically emphasize Buttler’s pure, raw and free way.
