Early career

Butterscotch (performer) Butterscotch TheButterscotch Twitter

Butterscotch said her mother got her started on piano at an early age. "My mom was a piano teacher, so me and my siblings all played the piano and at least one other instrument. "My siblings played the trumpet, cello, trombone, clarinet; I had access to all these instruments." As Butterscotch grew older, she was exposed to beat boxing by her high school friends, and said she was inspired to learn the skill. Stage name Butterscotch originated from a song Antoinette wrote about candy in high school. She attended the Natomas Charter School's Performing and Fine Arts Academy in Sacramento, California, where she focused on music. Clinton majored in music (classical piano) at California State University, Sacramento. Butterscotch's mom had to postpone her education at Sac State because her music career was taking over. In addition to the piano, she also plays saxophone, flute, guitar. She won the first World Hip Hop Beatbox Women's Championship in 2005 and won the West Coast Champion title in 2007 beating 18 men. Butterscotch has toured extensively with the Mike Patton-fronted band Peeping Tom, beatboxing in place of Rahzel. She was also a beatbox mentor on MTV's "Made".
