If you’re stranded on a mountaintop with a limited selection of music, take Jake LaBotz…..you won’t be sorry, I promise.

On a family trip, we’ve been tossing around worst-case scenarios (imagine being trapped on a desert island supplied only with a poor representation of your favorite genre of music) and best-case scenarios (aka, who’s your favorite all-time musician?). I find it really hard to peg a very favorite of all time. There are so many amazing time periods, pioneers of new sounds, gifted vocalists, scorching guitar players, fucked-up geniuses. We all have our own lists for the stranded-with-only mixtape.

But it hit me today. One of my favorite all-time musicians, alive and well, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person and recording live at our studio. Impeccable timing, luxurious tobacco voice, rich, resonant guitar tone and a hunkered-down meditative crouch make Jake LaBotz a stand-out, timeless star who humbly yet illustriously shines steady brilliance, remarkable in any musical cosmos.
