about

“Jeffrey Buzter came out of his mother an old man, yet he is still a boy. His melodies on toy pianos and bells make you feel like a little kid and give you chills in just the right places. I close my eyes and listen to his songs and paint pictures with blue and yellow and make my own movies. I sometimes spray paint the streets gold and black. I listen to his songs in the shower and when I'm driving and on a Saturday night and on a Sunday morning. “- Tom Cheshire- Writer of poems and songs

“Jeffrey’s music is twinkling, moving and genuine. It taps into that melancholy place inside, and then goes on a bicycle ride through a park where there is a surf guitar band and some characters from a spaghetti western playing chess. His music is exciting and adventurous. I just wish his songs were longer.” - Molly Harvey (The Residents)


“My friend Jeffrey Bützer is the best glockenspiel player around, hands down.” – Brent Hinds (Mastodon)

“Jeffrey Butzer is a master at taking theatrical, high-brow music and making it enjoyable for the PBR-swilling, dive bar crowd. He plays a mean squeeze box, too." --JD Wilkes (Th’ legendary Shack Shakers)



Translated from French-
“Post-modern, perhaps? JB is a multidimensional tightrope walker : he manages to keep balance between rigor of writing, most serious academic, emotional and playful fun, casual and many different cultural references. But it is emotion that makes Bützer especially endearing. It does not make too much : just like that way, it tells a story, it can be poignant, but - without pathos. The melody (the narrative) takes place smoothly apparent false evidence. We listen, we let it drive us, we let ourselves be taken by the hand. To dance, or just be there, smiling.
Post-modern perhaps, but cold, certainly not.” -From French composer Christoph (aka klimperie)
