“What makes this album so completely arresting is likely the quiet passion that Butler inserts into all of his lyrics. No one song seems more trivial than the previous; each song contains its own story, something that some songwriters have forgotten.” – Grayowl Point

“Winter King is a perfect reflection of the songwriter and the environment in which it was recorded. It is the Great White North personified. Certainly one of the best albums I’ve heard thus far this year.” – Common Folk Music
