Australian singer-songwriter Jack Botts has announced the release of his third EP, Slow Mornings. The announcement comes alongside the release of the EP's title track.
Written whilst being stuck in Canada when the COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a halt, the track is an ode to the Aussie lifestyle, travelling around the country on a road trip and spending time with loved ones. The EP itself captures the essence of new love, whilst also navigating the highs and lows of a long-distance relationship.
Speaking of the EP, Botts shares: "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. The pandemic gave me a lot of time to think (sometimes too much) and dive in to different genres and styles of writing. I feel I ventured out a little bit more than I ever have, which I really enjoyed! This EP will always remind me of a really tough year, but appreciate everything that came from those lessons."
Beginning his career as a busker in Byron Bay, Botts soon began playing shows weekly, building up a local fanbase. Soon after, he quit his job to pursue music full-time and hasn't looked back. Having toured with the likes of Tash Sultana, John Floreani and The Pierce Brothers, Botts brings an authentic approach to his songwriting, creating timeless songs that strikes a chord with listeners.
