One of the most exciting and influential young voices in modern gospel music, Christian musicianMyron Butler is making a name for himself as a singer, songwriter, producer, choir director and as the leader of Myron Butler & Levi. With Levi, Myron Butler has enjoyed massive gospel radio hits with “Set Me Free” and “Stronger.” The success has led to Stellar Awards, Grammy nominations and a reputation as one of the most in-demand men in gospel today.

Born in Bradenton, FL, Myron Butler’s family moved to Dallas when he was twelve years old. He had begun playing the piano at the age of eight and had honed his craft by the time he placed his first major song “Lift Him Up” with the Dallas-Ft. Worth Mass Choir when he was 17 years old. During this period, he joined the Kirk Franklin produced group, God’s Property, and became the choir vocal coach. Their self-titled debut CD featured the crossover smash hit “Stomp.” The CD eventually sold 3 million copies and Myron Butler shared a Grammy Award with Kirk Franklin for Best Gospel Choir Album.

He’s also produced for artists such as Donnie McClurkin, Smokie Norful, Tamela Mann, Marvin Sapp, Yolanda Adams, Ted & Sheri and Donald Lawrence. Myron Butler received Dove awards for his production on Smokie Norful’s “Limited Edition EP” and Tamela Mann’s “Masterplan” album.  Most recently, he produced background vocals for Marvin Sapp’s “Never Would’ve Made It” that broke records by Elvis and The Beatles as spending the most weeks at #1 in the history of the Billboard magazine chart survey as well as Marvin Sapp’s record breaking album Hear I Am release.

In the fall of 2005,Myron Butler and his group Levi finally stepped out front with their debut CD, the Grammy Nominated  Set Me Free. The ten-track set won 4 Stellar Gospel Awards and boasted the smash single “Set Me Free” with its hypnotic tribal rhythms and pulsating beat; the song became an instant fan favorite and made the Top Gospel lists. Myron Butler followed up with the 2007 CD Stronger. The title song was another aggressive, up-tempo and urban flavored declaration of faith.

In March 2010, Myron Butler & Levi released their third CD Revealed Live In Dallas. In the vein of urban praise and worship architect Fred Hammond, Myron Butler & Levi, offer crisp vocal and musical arrangements that showcase Myron Butler's strength as both writer and producer. 

On Revealed Live In Dallas, Myron Butler balanced his distinct urban contemporary praise songs with Sunday morning ready church offerings making Revealed Live In Dallas is a musical experience that audiences can both participate in and enjoy. “I really centered this album to be something the church can touch; I wanted something specifically praise and worship teams can duplicate and sing in their church every Sunday morning.” Butler said.  Revealed Live In Dallas won the “2011 Stellar Award for Best Contemporary Choir”.

Christian musicianMyron Butler has developed a reputation as an artist unafraid to push the creative envelope in a marketplace defined by tradition. With 2012's  Worship, Myron Butler,  reveals the role for which he was born---worship leader. The 11-song project, recorded live at Irving Bible Church  inMyron Butler’s home state of Texas, paints the most intimate portrait to date of an artist who has never been afraid to change.
