I haven’t posted anything here in several weeks. Unusual. It’s not like there haven’t been plenty of solidly good new releases lately…there have been. I guess nothing just really has blown me away?…until now. I’ve never heard of Butterfly Ali until today, but I have to say I really…REALLY love this new song…‘Ain’t Ready For Me.’
‘Ain’t Ready For Me’ from Butterfly Ali is the Best Thing I Heard Today!
About the artist:
Butterfly Ali is a soul/funk artist, songwriter and actor (Titus Makin). After graduating from the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, he relocated to Los Angeles to pursue his acting and musical career on a professional level. Titus has worked with multiple music and acting industry professionals due to his time on Fox’s hit show “Glee” and tour engagements related to “Glee: Live”. Titus has also starred in CW’s Star-Crossed and hit shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Grey’s Anatomy, Hulu’s The Path, among others. Titus is currently playing character Jackson West on ABC’s The Rookie.
As an artist, Butterfly Ali (Titus) cites Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Pharrell Williams, Cee Lo Green, PJ Morton and Leon Bridges as some of his musical inspirations. His sound could be described as mainstream soul, coupled with funk and pop undertones. He has written with and been produced by some of the industry’s top producers: New Beat Fund, Jake Scott, Aaron Kellim and David Hodges (Evanescence, Christina Perri, Kelly Clarkson).
Raised in a military household of all jazz, funk, soul and blues music, it is Butterfly Ali’s goal to keep the oldies alive and relevant. There’s no doubt that he is a rising, multi-skilled artist to watch closely in 2021.
