Product Notes

Dave Boutette's Midwest is full of passion, humor and a certain shakey grace. Influenced by songwriters that span from Chuck Berry to John Prine, he documents the trips and triumphs of life between the coasts. With a full band or solo acoustic, Boutette easily reveals a Midwest experience worthy of a second look with performances that are engaging, exhilarating, and often peppered with stories culled from his times on the road and his years growing up in the shadow of Detroit. "There\'s an honesty in his voice that\'s genuinely comforting; he finishes each line with an exclamation point that\'s confident without coming off as smug, putting him somewhere in between Alex Chilton and Elvis Costello. Boutette\'s a songwriter that relieves the Midwest of it's tendency to spew forth an endless sea of singer/songwriter banality, replacing it's tired clichés with protagonists that are as mischievous as they are heartfelt." All Music Guide "Boutette's genial temperament and taste make each song durable, and he baits his hooks like a Zen trout fishing master." Ann Arbor News \'That the local folk-rocker is as skilled a musician as he is a songwriter is just icing on this particular cake. Boutette, with work shaped by the likes of Dylan, Westerberg, Guthrie, Costello and Prine, is one of those guys who will probably wind up being cited as an influence by the next generation of singer-songwriters." Roger LeLievre, Ann Arbor News A Little History Before stepping out on his own, Boutette spent ten years with the Detroit-based alterna-rock bar kings The Junk Monkeys. The band toured the nation relentlessly, supporting acts such as the Goo Goo Dolls and Hootie and the Blowfish, while recording under the Warner Bros./Metal Blade label from 1990-93.
