Laura Heywood Interviews

Two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz has appeared on Broadway in My Fair Lady, Catch Me If You Can, Wicked, Rent, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Big Fish, Dead Accounts, Enron, Is He Dead, and Speed the Plow. The Last Five Years off-Broadway provided an equally pivotal role.

In addition to his legendary career on the stage, Norbert Leo Butz is a wildly talented songwriter, and his album “The Long Haul” is the first full-length album he has written entirely by himself.

“The Long Haul” is a country/ blues record that has a deep, beautiful sadness running through it along with a sense of perseverance and a heart determined to keep on loving.

It would be easy to believe this record was written by a long-haul trucker with a million miles behind him and thousands more to go — which is why “The Long Haul” is the perfect name for this heartbreaking, hardy collection of songs.
