During his career in music, after his years (1966 to 1969) with The Sceptres, Marty Butler struck out on his own with partner Bob Bilyk.

Soon the duo were writing songs for the likes of Trini Lopez, Ginette Reno, Tommy Hunter, and The Bells whose version of their song “Fly Little White Dove Fly” became a Canadian national hit.

Butler won $10,000 in the Hear Canada Singing contest for the tune “Can’t You Hear The Music” which soon led to a recording contract with Columbia Records. His home base was in Montreal but frequently worked in Toronto to be nearer Bilyk.

He went to WAM Records in the late ’70’s where he released several singles with arranger/producer Leon Aronson (also the label owner). By the 1980’s he’d moved onto RCA Records for his eponymous debut album in 1982.

Butler died February 10, 1995.
