He has had a solo career since 1989 releasing several remarkable solo albums. His latest album “Blood & Longing” was released in March 2019.

Sammy Butcher, Ngalia man with Walpiri and Pintupi ancestry is a founding member of the Warumpi Band. A gifted instrumentalist, he is considered one of the best guitarists in Australia. (He released a solo instrumental album in the 1990's). Sammy is now a respected leader in Central Australia and is renowned for his mentoring work with young people- particularly in developing and fostering the band Tjupi. His many songwriting collaborations with Neil Murray include - Koori Man, Sitdown Money, Warumpinnya, Tjiluru Tjiluru, Cold Weather, We Shall Cry, Nyuntu Nyaaltjirriku, Fitzroy Crossing, Jailanguru Pakurnu, Makes You Feel, Kintorelakutu, Spirit, Stompin Ground and We Gotta Be Strong.

The album Tjungu began after meeting in Papunya in 2014 to write songs again. The recording process overcame many obstacles. Jim Moginie (of Midnight Oil) produced the record.

About this track...

Libraries documents the loss of traditional knowledge that First Nation elders keep in their heads. Inspired by the observation by Sammy that old people were dying with "libraries in their heads" Young people are increasingly not interested in learning this lore. The song is an uptempo funky groove with catchy refrains.
