Karen Jonas – “Butter” Official Music Video

Artist city, country: Fredericksburg, Virginia, U.S.A.

Artist Biography: With three albums under her belt, four kids at home, and a touring schedule of 150+ shows per year, Karen Jonas doesn’t have time for any fillers. “Whether I’m finishing up a gig at midnight or getting pounced on by my kids at 6:30 a.m., I usually feel like my life is a circus,” she says. “So I started writing songs about my circus.” She shines a light on the triumphs and challenges of that busy life with her newest release, Butter.

As rich as its name suggests, “Butter” mixes the textured twang of Jonas’s folk and country roots — a sound she explored fully on her previous album, 2016’s country songs — with the diverse influences of ragtime, blues, jazz, and barroom soul. It’s her broadest, boldest album to date, with songs that anchor themselves in southern storytelling and Jonas’s smooth, unforced croon. Written and recorded in her hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia, Butter is a retro-minded album for the modern age — the sound of a songwriter celebrating her circumstances.

Butter was tracked at Wally Cleaver’s Recording Studio, within a five-minute drive of Karen’s home. She’d head over to the studio after putting her kids to bed. Tim Bray, her guitarist and musical partner for nearly half a decade, joined her for those nighttime recording sessions, as did a number of other musicians who laced Butter’s ten songs with pedal steel, B3 organ, upright piano, layers of guitar, and vintage-sounding, seven-piece horn arrangements.
As the album came together, each song took on a life of its own. The title track is a late-night, big-band jazz number, while “My Sweet Arsonist” is a woozy, slow- burning love ballad. “Gospel of the Road” and “Yellow Brick Road” both nod to Tom Petty’s influence, thanks to ringing guitars and heartland rock & roll melodies. “Dance With Me” slows down its tempo to a swinging waltz, while the Beatles-esque “Mr. Wonka” speeds it back up to a surreal circus’s pace. Together, Butter’s songs explore one woman’s story to the tune of a full range of American roots music.
There’s perhaps no better summary of the album’s peppy punch than its flagship song, “Butter,” which kicks off with honking trumpets, swooning vocals, and slyly witty lyrics. The song tells the story of a hardworking mother who’s a killer cook and a first-rate parent. She’s sexy, ambitious, composed, and sipping straight whiskey just before 5 o’clock.

Stop on by for dinner and try it, don’t you wanna? / You’re gonna love her / Mama cooks with butter

“Butter” is Karen Jonas’s finest combination of melody and message to date, stripped free of artificial ingredients and fillers. This is “Butter” — smooth one minute, decadent the next, and fulfilling throughout.

Song Lyrics: “Butter”

Mama cooks with butter
of course she does sugar
soft and warm right on the counter
She looks like Grace Kelly
she tastes like Betty Crocker
Mama cooks with butter

Mama cooks with butter
you know the real thing
don’t give me no Country Crock or margarine
Dinner rolls on the table
cookies in the cupboard
Mama cooks with butter

Mama drinks straight whiskey
of course she does baby
standing in the kitchen at 4:53
She keeps up with the Joneses
she reads good housekeeping
Mama drinks straight whiskey

Mama drinks straight whiskey
she’s the real thing
though she makes a fine manhattan or a martini
She is ambitious
she believes in efficiency
Mama drinks straight whiskey

She feels like Elizabeth Taylor
when she slips off her big diamond ring
Mama’s here to listen when you wanna talk
but when she feeds you boy you know you better eat

Mama cooks with butter
you know the real thing
she still likes her shag carpets and wood paneling
She turns on Dean Martin
she turns on Frank Sinatra
Mama cooks with butter
Stop on by for dinner
try it don’t you wanna
you’re gonna love her
Mama cooks with butter
