Conversations and Complications is the second single to be lifted from Brad Butcher’s forthcoming debut album. Co-written with Grammy Award winning songwriter Mark Swersky on a couple of ‘virtual’ trips to New York, the song was subsequently produced, recorded and mixed at Rockinghorse Studios in Byron Bay by ARIA nominated producer / engineer Anthony Lycenko.
Conversations and Complications is a very personal take on an argument between two people that should know better. It’s a snapshot of their frustration, anger and hurt as they attempt to deal with each other’s emotions. Most importantly however, the song is a testament to the gift of resolution….it’s inherently optimistic and it’s this resolution and relief that are expressed so simply by the lyric ‘It’s alright…..’
A finalist in this years’ QMA and MusicOz awards for his songwriting, 2012 has also seen Brad tour with Busby Marou, showcase at Big Sound, debut at The Gympie Muster and support both Pete Murray and Mark Seymour.
