The Butterflies of Love Jeff Greene: vocals & guitar Daniel Greene: vocals & guitar Jason Mills: guitar Scott Amore: keyboard Pete Whitney: bass guitar Neil O'Brien: drums Mark Mulcahy: additional vocals Jeff and Daniel Greene officially launched The Butterflies of Love in New Haven, Connecticut, USA, on March 15, 1994, under the name The Silver Bug. Ditching the world of coffeeshop open mic nights and farmers market one-off performances, the duo assumed the name The Super-Sonic Daredevils of Show Business. With a six-piece avant-garde improvisational jazz band backing their efforts, Jeff and Daniel spent the harvest season on New England's agricultural fair circuit. Garnering a motley collection of fans but completely exhausting their budget, The Super-Sonic Daredevils of Show Business disbanded at the end of 1994.

Jeff and Daniel regrouped as stripped down two-piece The Butterflies of Love and hastily recorded an album in the living room they shared during the spring of 1995, America's Newest Hit Makers. For the next two years at Mike Arafeh's Coffeehouse Studio in Middletown, Connecticut (Jeff's hometown), the duo recorded a completely new debut album with the help of friends and fellow musicians, a few of whom found themselves permanent members of The Butterflies of Love: Scott Amore on all sorts of keyboards, Pete Whitney on bass guitar, Neil O'Brien on drums, and co-producer of much of the band's early output Mark Mulcahy on everything that needed doing -- from vocals to drums to piano riffs. Released in 1998, How To Know The Butterflies of Love was well received by both fans and the press. "It's Different Now" (not on the album) was named Single of the Week by UK magazine NME, and the album's first single, "Rob a Bank," was played by BBC radio's John Peel, who invited the band to his station's Maida Vale studios in London to record a Peel Session. (Fellow Americans Blink 182 publicly decried the release as crap and the band as idiots in UK magazine Melody Maker.) The Butterflies of Love began recording in Michael Demming's Studio 45 in Hartford, Connecticut.

A single, "Wintertime Queen," was released for Christmas 1999, but 3/5 of the band moved to Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and the New Jersey shore. The songs on The New Patient, released in 2002, ranged from the summertime pop of "Dream Driver" to the morose intricacy of "Over It and Over It Again" and the grandiose despair of "The 100th Floor." Following a successful tour, The Butterflies of Love were joined by childhood friend Jason Mills on lead guitar and recorded the 13-song Famous Problem with Alap Momin of Dalek at his Sweetwood Studios in Parsippany, New Jersey. Tracks include "Take Action," "In a Blizzard in a Lighthouse," "Orbit Around You," "Act Deranged," and "Sunshine." Famous Problem will be released in January 2007 on Fortuna POP! Records and Tapes.
