Jon Lawton  Musician, producer and owner of @crosstownstudios, Liverpool. Guitarist for Sami Yusuf.

I’m generally not someone who posts personal things on social media, but after hearing of the passing of Tony Butler from Liverpool’s Zanzibar Club, I started looking through some old photographs and wanted to say a huge thank you to him. For giving gigs to every band I’ve ever played with. For giving jobs to friends when they’ve needed it. For never charging my Mum and Dad for a show. For making it ok to play the 1am slot when you thought you’d be on at 9pm. The Liverpool music scene won’t be the same without you. RIP Tony. (Photo from one of my first shows at the Zanzi in 2001)

Today marks the 10th Birthday of Crosstown Studios! I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the people that have supported the studio over the years, all the musicians that keep coming back to work here, my friends that have helped me out time and time again, and my family for all their continued and unwavering support. This wouldn’t exist without you.

Thank You,
