JAKE LA BOTZ is a movie star and songwriter … a master storyteller who infuses his songs with gritty, deeply imagined characters.  A former punk and high school dropout from Chicago who educated himself at the library, he fell under the wing of blues greats Homesick James (brother of Elmore) and David “Honeyboy” Edwards. Out in LA, he fell into addiction. He has recovered and mounted national concert tours of tattoo parlors. He now lives in Nashville and teaches meditation and acts in a variety of projects from True Detective to Ghost World, with a new lead in the indie film The Gospel of Jake. As a musician and songwriter, his new album ‘Sunnyside’  offers deep-welled Americana, some of it with the hardest early R&B/early rock & roll grooves you’ll hear this year.  http://www.jakelabotz.com/
