Jonathan Butler releases 'Grace and Mercy' Sept. 25 Guitarist Jonathan Butler is set to release his latest album, Grace and Mercy, on September 25. The native South African singer and songwriter says, “This album really speaks about optimism, faith, belief and hope, especially in the light of what everybody has been experiencing in the last two or three years. There’s been a lot of people losing their homes, their jobs, enduring the challenges that life brings. I’m hoping this album will bring hope to people." Butler's successful career includes seventeen charted albums on Billboard and solid music sales on two continents. His next performance will be in Pretoria, South Africa on September 1 and he will join the Dave Koz and Friends at Sea Cruise setting sail on September 26.
