Dangerbird Records Signs Butch Walker and Ben Lee
Dangerbird Records has added a pair of multitalented singer-songwriters to their roster of artists.
The Los Angeles record label just signed producer/singer Butch Walker and Australian musician and actor Ben Lee.
Founded in 2004, Dangerbird is known for other indie success stories—Minus The Bear, Silversun Pickups, Sea Wolf, and Fitz and the Tantrums.
“Neither Ben nor Butch needs an introduction — their individual track records in the music business speak for themselves,” Jeff Castelaz, CEO and co-founder of Dangerbird, said in a statement.
Walker has been spreading his sonic seed in the industry for some time now. He started out with pop-rock trio Marvelous 3 in the late ’90s, and when the group disbanded he went on to make five solo albums.
But he’s probably best known for his behind-the-scenes magic, as he’s produced for a handful of major recording artists— everyone from Katy Perry and Pink to Panic at the Disco! and Weezer. Walker also performed the banjolin alongside Taylor Swift and Stevie Nicks during the Grammys last year.
AIRA award-winning musician Ben Lee has produced seven albums since his Sydney band, Noise Addict, broke up in 1995. The singer-songwriter also appeared in the 2003 Australian film The Rage In Placid Lake.
Both Walker and Lee are working on records set for release this fall.
