Jake La Botz

Biography

A rip-roaring, Delta blues-inflected singer, guitarist, and songwriter, Jake La Botz was reportedly conceived while his parents were hearing an album by Tx bluesman Mance Lipscomb. Shifting to Chicago as a little child along with his dad, a truck drivers, union organizer, and journalist, La Botz uncovered classic blues and hillbilly music on the collection as an adolescent, and promptly slipped out of college (which might or might not experienced anything regarding his discovery from the blues). He begun to travel and start to see the nation, functioning a succession of labor careers, and somewhere on the way he discovered how exactly to play your guitar. Time for Chicago, he started busking on road sides, mentoring with bluesmen like Maxwell Road Jimmy Davis and David “Honeyboy” Edwards, before departing once again on another around of moves, playing juke joint parts, blues night clubs, and tattoo parlors. He also started a side profession as an professional, showing up in Steve Buscemi’s Pet Manufacturing plant, where he was demonstrated onscreen playing several his tunes. He continued to roles inside a succession of movies, including Lonesome Jim, Ghost Globe, Thirteen Moons, The Gray, and One Night time along with you, and experienced a recurring part in it series Gilmore Ladies. He also discovered time and energy to record many albums, like the Initial Soundtrack to My Headache (2000), Utilized to Become (2002), All Spirit and No Cash (2004), Graveyard Jones (2006), and Sing This to Yourself along with other Suggestions for an individual Apocalypse (2008). Fascinated with tattoos, every year La Botz mounts a self-booked tour of American tattoo parlors, offering an ideal backdrop for his visceral musical eyesight, which draws greatly around the Delta blues and it is delivered inside a riveting, Tom Waits-like rasp and growl.
