Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Tom Butwin was raised on a healthy musical diet of George Harrison, Billy Joel, Michael Jackson, and musical theater that mirrors the wide spectrum of performances he has given over his relatively short 16 year career. Equally at home onstage in a Broadway-style musical, fronting an original pop/rock band that bears his name, or giving an intimate acoustic performance, he brings a unique and powerful voice to each setting.
As a three-time Detroit Music Award nominee, Tom Butwin is fresh off of a Spring 2017 run starring as “Jesus” in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical, “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Since 2003, Tom has released four full-length albums, the most recent being 2016’s collection of classic musical theater songs, A Different Stage. Also in 2016, Tom embarked on an ambitious project called #52Covers through which he released a new cover song each week to his YouTube Channel.
Tom has appeared on many notable stages such as NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall, The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI, and Seven Steps Up in Spring Lake, MI while being prominently featured on WDET’s Ann Delisi’s Essential Music & Rob Reinhart’s Essential Music, as well as on Ann Arbor’s 107 One shows Tree Town Sound with Matthew Altruda, John Bommarito’s Acoustic Brunch, and Martin Bandyke’s morning show
