Lives in Birmingham,uk
, SongWriter at Muzopia
The creative works of William John butler - songwriter/musician/producer
I have to take my hat off the small army of friends
and fans who have followed my work over the years
,each time I say something stupid they put me back on
the right track again, so thank you, you inspire me.
I have some great ideas for muzopia
One is to strip away the music, so its like that time
when I was sixteen and singing on to a cassette tape
in my bedroom, Muzopia in the flesh, Like the song
evil minds in its original form, the way it was in
the 1980s it was a completely different song
the words had power and meaning
the 2005 version the music has the power
and the words are drowned out,
I love it that way don't get me wrong but only
I know what it was like, I may not do it, but I like the idea
so its worth looking into a little deeper
I picked up my guitar the other day, I broke a string,
and Then replaced it and I have been looking at it ever since
I don't have a writers block I just have yet another cold,
In part three insane I said Its hard to breath
well its the same with this cold.
Happy birthday Muzopia
On the 14,04,14 Muzopia will be Eight years old
so to celebrate I have re-released my first muzopia song
"Part three insane" released Originally on myspace
and had about 4000 plays, it was that what
encouraged me too continue and I look back
pleased with my musical careerer with great happiness
I feel muzopia made a mark
VAGABONDS AND VILLAINS:
The world has changed and not for the better
so I Know will attack this change in words and music.
This song is not a protest song its a direct attack,
remember that when you play it, i have spent many months
Checking out the information before i wrote this song
and this is from my perspective so its the emotional impact
more than the facts.that i write about.
i will let you look it up your self and not push the issues any more.
you have to listen 1st to know what i am talking about.Hint..
The Video is not like anything i have done in the past
i used free stock footage from http://www.beachfrontbroll.com
and the images only hint to the lyrics of the song
in a very gentle way.
i believe all my years of watching French cinema
Especially the time-laps motorway shots attracted me to them
and oh yes! the ultra high quality shots.
Since muzopias return i have had two local number ones
the first being (Me My girl and I)and Second (Seek U).
Me my girl and I Hit number one in just a 7 days
The fastest moving song ever for muzopia.
On 14/04/2006 I created a Studio Band called Muzopia
and with Muzopia I have made Five albums and Twenty videos and a few Thousand Photographs Everything was written /directed /edited and produced by me.I had a very large following all over the Net,
last count was coming close to 16,000 and made connections
to people all over the world and collaborated
with a selected few Singers and musicians,
during this time i also supported many human rights issues
and i feel happy and satisfied that using The muzopia name
and large network gave some help to others.
I closed muzopia down in January 2013
while it was still going strong, But Only Three months
later i reinvented it.
UPDATE: Muzopia Is Back
a few months down the line has shown me
that i need to re-start muzopia, i can't turn my back on it t now,
it became what is was in the first place and that was me.
This is my new journey.
I am back making music as Muzopia and as before
managering it under my own name William John Butler
Nothing much else will change
The directions i had been taking before had an endless pathway
and its a place i will be travelling for ever and a day.
