After a whirlwind response to his 2019 ‘Northern Rivers’ EP, singer-songwriter and busker Jack Botts is revealing a new single I’ve Got You and live music video today. Alongside the reveal comes a string of additional shows on his End Of Summer National Tour.
Botts explains that the track captures a period of desperation his friend was going through while being separated from key people in his life.
“Lyrically, it’s written from his perspective, with the desperation and hope, that he’ll get back in contact with these people again,” he explains. “It’s about being in that state of mind where nothing else matters, you know what you want/need, staying positive, and not stopping until you get it. This is for anyone missing someone/something.”
In late 2019 Botts revealed ‘Northern Rivers’, featuring adored singles Gypsy and its title track, took it to sold out crowds along the east coast while picking up over three quarters of a million streams along the way.
Elsewhere on the live front he has already been picked up to support the likes of Tash Sultana, John Floreani, The Pierce Brothers and Ash Grunwald, played festivals including Land Of Plenty, St. Kilda Festival and Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, and was just announced on Big Pineapple Festival alongside the likes of Hilltop Hoods, Alison Wonderland, The Amity Affliction, Dune Rats, G Flip and more.
Brandishing a no-frills, down-to-earth approach to life and a charming knack for storytelling, Botts has swiftly and organically build a fanbase with little infrastructure behind him. Deep-thinking, heart-string-pulling and utterly endearing, Jack Botts is a breath of fresh air poised to command widespread attention before too long.
“This new one is sounding so polished and sweet. You’re stepping up to that next level and proving you belong there. 4.5/5”
