Rayland Baxter returns with his fourth album, If I Were a Butterfly, a deeply personal and artistically ambitious project. The album was meticulously crafted over a year in a converted rubber-band factory in Kentucky, offering a rich tapestry of lush psychedelia and Beatlesesque pop. This project showcases Baxter's evolution as both an artist and a producer, with contributions from industry icons such as Shakey Graves, Lennon Stella, members of Cage the Elephant, and the legendary Motown drummer Miss Bobbye Hall.

The album-opening title track begins with a nostalgic recording of Baxter at age four, setting the stage for an album filled with personal reflection, dreamlike melodies, and a soundscape that includes the natural rhythms of the countryside. Songs like “Billy Goat” and “Rubberband Man” reflect the album’s thematic diversity and creative ingenuity.

Rayland Baxter, sharing his journey and the profound influences in his life, says, “This album is a reflection of my experiences, my dreams, and the people who have touched my life. It's about finding joy and love, even through the challenges.”

Don’t miss your chance to experience this transcendent music live. If I Were a Butterfly promises an evening of deep emotional resonance, innovative music, and a connection that only live performances can forge.
