Bio

Buttercats is a sexy, smooth trio based in Brisbane, playing RnB inspired Disco Soul. The band formed in 2018 when frontman Tim Watkin teamed up with his sister, percussionist Jaymee Watkin, and Marc Dubois, bass player and producer. The band was born when Tim moved to Brisbane from Cape York, where he’d been playing guitar instead of attending high school; timing well with Jaymee returning home from touring as drummer for Australian songstress, Emma Louise. Marc’s bedroom producer past then added a modern edge to the soulful inclinations of the siblings. A year after it’s inception, Buttercats have poured their souls into making new music that captivates and excites, with an emphasis on helping people of all walks of life step into a melty, glistening dewdrop of euphoria.

Buttery indeed. I really hope that's a real baritone vocal and not a synth too.

Rocking a velvet kimono, slippers and a pipe in my mouth as I calmly nod to this warm breeze of a song.
