Home entertainment system as CQ singer performs at homes
FOR Brad Butcher, it's all about connecting with his audience.
And the Central Queensland singer is doing it in a unique way - performing for his fans at their homes.
"I've done a handful of home gigs before, they've gone really well," Brad said.
"Some people clear all their furniture and have about 20 people; it suits my music better than a public scene. I'm storytelling really (and) in the house setting you can really make a nice little gig."
Brad, who's based in Brisbane, works as a crane operator in Dysart but spends his days off working on his music.
"I played in a cover band back in Mackay for about four years with mates, but I wanted to be a singer and started playing solo gigs and recorded an album in 2012," Brad said.
"It's a labour of love, something I've always wanted to do.
"It's easy to be motivated when it's what you love."
Brad's been on tours recently in New York and Canada, but said it's always great to play at home.
"It's nice to go home and play, even though I moved away it doesn't feel like I left," Brad said.
His tour in regional Queensland is celebrating the release of his latest single "The Old Man's Gone".
Brad's tour includes Rockhampton, and he'll be doing home gigs over the next few months.
Brad Butcher will perform at fans' homes across regional Queensland.
