His songs are inspired by the many travels he did around the world. You hear the tragic in his lived-through voice. The music is reminiscent of old greats such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan, but also the new generation within the genre, such as JD McPherson and Nick Waterhouse.
Steve Buscemi says the following about Jake La Botz: "From the first time I heard him playing guitar and singing his songs in a smoky bar on La Brea and Sunset, I became a devoted fan of Jake La Botz. Effortlessly blending authentic blues, rock, country, and gospel, he's created a sound and style that is original and yet instantly familiar. Soulful, personal, painfully funny and sad; his beautifully crafted songs always inspire me to sing along."
What need we say more? Jake La Botz' albums get released on Hi-Style Records, ran by perhaps the most famous bass player in rockabilly: Jimmy Sutton.
