Butterfly Garden is a New Jersey-based, independent rock band with its roots in Asbury Park, NJ. With the sounds of the Jersey Shore in the background, Butterfly Garden has played venues from the summer events on the boardwalk to the region’s favorite stages. Butterfly Garden recently released its debut album “This Was Gonna Last” recorded at Lakehouse Recording Studios in Asbury Park on Moto Records. Many thanks to our producer and engineer Evan Rudenjak, Lakehouse founder Jon Leidersdorff and the many professionals, family members, and friends that made this possible.
This Was Gonna Last is a record that should make people sit up and listen. This is a young New Jersey band whose writing and songcraft shows a sophistication well beyond their years.
The Ark of Music
An articulated and intriguing compositional style that makes the music of Butterfly Garden stand out from the crowd. It is evident that these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such an enviable musical alchemy.
