At sixteen Artie Butler was discovered by the legendary song writing and producing team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. He worked as an assistant engineer at a recording studio where they worked all the time, and was given a chance to replace a pianist at a recording session. The rest, as they say, is history.
Through the years Artie has been involved in every phase of the music industry: composing, arranging, conducting, producing and playing. Awarded over sixty gold and platinum records, multi Emmy and Grammy nominations, his credits are literally and figuratively too numerous to mention.
His song "Here's To Life" recorded by Barbra Streisand and Shirley Horn is becoming a new American standard. He is a three-time Emmy nominee, including a nomination for his outstanding work as composer and music supervisor on the CBS mini-series "SINATRA" based on the life of Frank Sinatra.
He has scored numerous TV films and series, and has been musical director for many TV specials. He’s also known for his wonderful sense of humor. Like many musical talents from New York, Artie Butler started in the Brill Building. He lived and made some of the most significant contributions to that fabled and historic era.
