Christmas 2010 update
Hi there folks,
Thought i'd update my website a little and let you know what i've been up to of late.
I performed some gigs with my own band Sonic Butterfly in the North of England
in November, and took a masterclass in composition at Salford University,
which was a lot of fun. I have been recording and gigging with the psychedelic
folk/rock band Oddfellow's Casino, which is like the most fun ever.
I am really looking forward to the next set of gigs with this band.
Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year.
More updates soon.

Sonic Butterfly now on amazon.co.uk
Just a wee note to say that my debut album; 'Jim Whyte's Sonic Butterfly' is now available on amazon.co.uk.
I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I did creating it.

Welcome to my new website. Thanks for looking round.
It was designed by piano extraordinaire and computer wizard, Nick Peck. Cheers Nick.
Well, a few words about what is going on with me at the moment. First of all; my new and debut album 'Sonic Butterfly' is out on itunes at the moment. You can purchase a download from the Sonic Butterfly heading on the homepage. Just click the link and it will take you to the store. There is soon to be physical CD's available on Amazon.co.uk. Watch this space for further updates on that, but they should be available fairly soon.
Also this month I will be playing at the Meadowlands Festival in East Sussex with the cinematic / experimental ensemble 'Bellows'. I played with them last week at The Old Market in Hove, supporting the Neil Cowley trio. It was a fantastic gig for me, as I really enjoy playing with this ensemble because the compositions are amazing and also very catchy.
Also last week, I played at the Brighton Buddhist Centre with the alternative jazz trio 'Full Circle'. I have been playing with this band for nearly two years now, and the vibe between the three of us just gets stronger. I don't think I have ever felt so exposed on a jazz gig as I felt this one though. I mean those places are quiet and more so than any church. It was however, a great gig and it was packed out too, which is always nice.
Anyway, enough for now. Me thinks it is time for tea.
