Singer-songwriter Jake La Botz plays roots-drenched music that reflects his time performing in streets, bars, churches, and even tattoo parlors. You can also hear the various places La Botz has lived in his music — including his time in New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta, and his native Chicago. With his new album 'Hair On Fire', Jake once again proves to be a versatile artist. Funky, soul, gospel, and warm pop, all on one album!

As a young man, Jake found affinity with some of the last pre-war bluesmen in Chicago: David "Honeyboy" Edwards, "Homesick" James, and "Maxwell Street" Jimmy Davis. In 2017 and 2019, he released his studio albums 'Sunnyside' and 'They're Coming for Me' to rave reviews and both albums received Independent Music Awards. Jake has toured extensively in the US and Europe and has shared the stage with Ray Charles, Etta James, Dr. John, Mavis Staples and many others, and now he is making his appearance in Eindhoven!
