Rising Australian singer-songwriter Jack Botts‘ latest release ‘Hold You Tapes’ is out now. Lead by the namesake single Hold You, the 3-track tapes release also features Fireworks and Liquid Love.

It comes after a whirlwind response to his latest EP ‘Northern Rivers‘, which has already picked up 2 million streams since its release in November 2019.

Jack explains the meaning behind lead single Hold You below: “‘Hold You’ was written somewhere between Byron Bay and Vancouver, and it explains the feeling of falling headfirst into a romance. Reminiscing on the moments you’ve shared together, but also the obstacle of a long distance love.”

Born in Brisbane and now loosely Byron Bay-based, Jack Botts has made a home in his van and cut his chops busking across Australia’s coastline. It’s this no-frills, down-to-earth approach to life and a charming knack for storytelling that has seen the singer-songwriter swiftly and organically build a core fanbase over the last two years.

Consistently present on the local live scene, Botts has a strong live presence and burgeoning demand, having sold out multiple headline shows in major metro and regional hotspots and supported high-calibre Australian artists including Tash SultanaJohn FloreaniThe Pierce Brothers and Ash Grunwald.

Across a small catalogue, Jack has also dominated on the streaming front, racking up over 5M+ catalogue streams in the last 12 months and 100K Monthly Spotify listeners and climbing.To celebrate the release of ‘Hold You Tapes’, Jack Botts will play a trio of intimate QLD release shows kicking off tonight.
