Cherrywine is the name of Ishmael Butler's band. You probably know Ishmael as 'Butterfly' from Digable Planets or as just 'Ish' from his work with artists like 4 Hero and Camp Lo in some of his post-Digable work.

Overall, Ish had been pretty quiet since Digable disbanded. Then at the end of 2001, a 12' white-label with two tracks from Cherrywine surfaced almost mysteriously. Within weeks, the 12' was a top-seller among internet retailers and Ish seemed to have picked up right where he left off--distinguished as one as one of the most interesting and progressive MC's to ever pick up a mic.

In 2003, DCide Records, in a partnership with Babygrande, released Cherrywine's debut album which was met with critical acclaim worldwide.
