No doubt one of Australia’s fastest rising songwriters – albeit flying somewhat under the radar – Jack Botts has swiftly built a fanbase spanning over 250,000 Monthly Spotify listeners and over 14 Million catalogue streams in just a few short years. Brandishing an authentic and no-frills approach to life and music, the chippy turned-turned-busker-turned seasoned touring heartthrob is poised to break the ceiling.
2021 marks the release of his third EP, Slow Mornings, a charming 6-tracker that captures an incredibly formative period in the 23-year-old’s life. Marking a memory bank of the highs and lows of the last 18 months, Slow Mornings dives into new love – let alone a long-distance love in a COVID-world – and all its frustrations, anticipations, mountain tops and valleys.
„This EP is a collection of tracks that represent a pretty crazy point in my life, and career. All the ups and downs of balancing a long-distance relationship with work. It talks about all the moments when you want to throw the towel in and give up, to the realisation that giving up just isn’t an option, despite the heartache,” Jack shares.
While the EP certainly channels the year’s fatigue and uncertainty, Slow Mornings stands as an energetic, bright and free-flowing batch of songs. From the engrossing surge of ‘18th Floor’ to the quirky edge of ‘I’ve Got You’ and sweet sadness of ‘Tattoos’, Slow Mornings is packed to please.
Indiepop artist lùisa convinces as a unique multi-talent. As a singer with a raw, emotional voice, as a strong songwriter with profound lyrics in several languages, as an outstanding guitarist and finally as a stylistically confident producer of spherical dreampop arrangements.
Since 2015, lùisa is the only German signing with the Canadian record company Nettwerk. With her impressive live show, where she sometimes performs with loops & samples as a one-woman show, and sometimes plays with a full band line-up, she not only inspired large parts of Europe but also played in the USA as well as some concerts supporting international artists like Xavier Rudd, The Paper Kites, Cäthe or Lucy Rose. Her song „Under The Wild Skies“ was used in the Netflix production ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, which brought her additional international attention.
In early May 2021, she released her third album, „A New Woman“ – The title is not just thrown around. Because in terms of the associative empowerment lyrics, the cleverly structured songwriting as well as the musical performance, LÙISA really presents herself here as a „New Woman“.
