John Butler is one of Australia’s most successful independent artists. He co-founded his own record label and his blues roots group, the John Butler Trio, has released numerous award-winning albums and earned millions of fans worldwide.

When US-born Butler sees his accountant, he doesn’t take a plush lift to the upper floors of a modern city high-rise. He makes his way to a northern Perth beachside suburb and finds the work entrance of Kylie Thompson’s home – the headquarters of Sorrento Strategic Accounting.
