„Rigas Ritmi 2013" presents – Queen of beatbox BUTTERSCOTCH !


On July 5th a vocal percussionist Butterscotch from USA will perform!

Butterscotch is a true multi-talented artist. While she beatboxes, she sings and plays either guitar or piano. Sometimes she even emulates the trumpet in her performance. Butterscotch performs her own compositions and jazz classics.

Antoinette Clinton took the stage name “Butterscotch” thanks to the song she wrote when she was a little girl.

Won several beatbox contests - International World Female Beatbox in 2005 (Leipzig, Germany) and category for both genders at West Coast Beatbox in 2007 (Berkeley, USA).  

Butterscotch gained international recognition as vocalist from her appearance on NBC's "America's Got Talent".

She is heavily influenced by jazz, classical, hip hop and R&B artists ranging from Frederic Chopin to Stevie Wonder. After high school she was accepted into the music program at California State University Sacramento as a Classical Piano Major but after a couple years she decided to pursue her dreams of making it in the musical world.

Butterscotch has performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival and Coachella with music legends Earth, Wind & Fire, Chick Corea, Lenny White, and has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Wyclef Jean, Will.I.Am.

Butterscotch has performed all over the United States in large venues as well as small ones - giving beatbox workshops to inner-city kids.

Butterscotch will host the workshop of beatbox for young enthusiasts during the “Rigas Ritmi” concerts as well.
