In 1998 John Butler was busking on the streets of Fremantle, West Australia. 3500 self funded cassette sales served as the foundation for becoming Australia's most successful independent artist ever. Fast forward to 2011 and his label Jarrah Records has now been responsible for one million sales in Australia. Home to other artists such as The Waifs, Jarrah Records continues to pave the way for independent artists in Australia.
Butler owns and operates his own record label- Jarrah Records— which has released the John Butler Trio’s last five studio albums, two live albums, two DVD’s and his first self titled album. 2003’s ‘Sunrise Over Sea’ was the first independently released album to reach number one in Australia, and, like the band’s fourth album ‘Grand National’, went on to enjoy multi-platinum success. In 2010 John Butler released the trio’s fifth studio album ‘April Uprising’ this was the band’s third consecutive album to debut at number one on the national Australian ARIA album charts.
