    "Cotton Tornado" was co-produced and engineered by Justin Douglas of King Electric Recording in Austin Texas.The first to be recorded under the name Thee Conductor this impressive debut is a swirl of orchestration with both amplified and acoustic instruments, catchy singing, and interesting rhythmic drum patterns.

    All of the songs on Cotton Tornado were written by Jason Butler, who has previously released records alongside Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Bill Dolan (5ive Style, Heroic Doses), and was co-writer for the Austin group Quien es, BOOM!. Rounding things out are important embellishments made by the vocal - creative perspectives of Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Kevin Shea, Jana Horn, A.Sinclair, Choctaw Wildfire, Michael Patrick St. Clair & many others. 



    The opening track, “Face Crinkle,” is made of two separate drum patterns glued together by a simple acoustic guitar strum, which is then highlighted by the unmistakable voice of Bonnie “Prince” Billy. The title track, “Cotton Tornado,” is a sad ditty with hopeful elements sprinkled on top. The rhythm and melody are initially created by small boxed bells, an acoustic guitar, and ending with a very Vince Guaraldi-esque horn section; a beautiful call and response arrangement. The entire album is a bittersweet journey rooted in pop with well placed string, horn and vocal orchestration.
