The Power of Music: Collaboration and Creativity
Singer & Songwriter
From the underground beatbox battle scene to rocking the stage on America’s Got Talent, Butterscotch became the world’s first beatboxing champion and has amazed audiences around the world with her singing, beatboxing, and mesmerizing performance style. Butterscotch’s music incorporates strong messages around issues that exist in our workplaces and personal lives, including diversity, bullying, and creativity. “We need to accept everyone for who they are and understand that people do not choose to be black, white, gay, straight, female, male, or transgender,” she says. “We are all humankind.”
Butterscotch, the retro-futuristic, voice percussionist virtuosa, is a force to be reckoned with. The world’s first female beatboxing champion, she has created a unique style. While she beatboxes, she sings and plays either guitar or piano, performing her own compositions and jazz standards. Butterscotch is heavily influenced by jazz, classical, hip hop and R&B, ranging from Frederick Chopin to Billie Holiday to Stevie Wonder. She is truly a one-woman vocal symphony, performing either solo or fusing perfectly with her band.
In 2007 Butterscotch gained international fame by appearing as a finalist on NBC's Americas Got Talent. After her rapid rise to popularity, she found herself performing alongside music legends such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Nile Rodgers, Chick Corea, Bobby McFerrin, Marcus Miller, Wyclef Jean, KRS-One, Mike Patton, Dan the Automator and has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Talib Kweli, Will.I.Am, Raphael Saadiq, and Rahzel. She is featured on albums by SMV (Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten) and on George Benson’s “Song’s & Stories”.
She then took European and Asian audiences by storm, performing at the most prestigious summer festivals. At the Montreux Jazz Festival, founder Claude Nobs was so impressed by her talent that he put her on the major stages to open for Tony Bennett and Anastasia, and invited her to join Nile Rodgers and Sergio Mendez during their performances. She has toured with the Grammy-award winning Danish Radio Big Band and the Blue House Big Band from Stockholm. She also had a residency in Las Vegas performing at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, where she starred in the acclaimed show Vegas Nocturne. She has spoken at conferences including HATCH, EG Conference, C2 Montreal, HIVE, and IDEACITY.
Butterscotch now lives in Los Angeles and has released a series of EPs called “The Scotch Tapes.” When she’s not touring the world, she gives back to the community by teaching beatbox workshops at colleges, high schools, and elementary schools and continues to live her dream of touching the world with her music.
