Bootstraps is a testament to the idea that good songs always find their audience. The Los Angeles-based band, specializes in what Rolling Stone called "compelling, emotionally gripping material," while naming them "a band worth watching closely." Even before the release of the band's 2014 self-titled debut, Bootstraps' music had been featured prominently in TV and film as their breakout record won over the industry's most selective audience.
Their forthcoming record 'Homage' is about deconstructing familiar tunes and re-framing them.
"I hated the idea of doing a 'covers' record," singer Jordan Beckett said, "if you're talking about American Idol karaoke renditions... rather, we were inspired by the Emmylou Harris album Wrecking Ball that applied Daniel Lanois' ambient style of production to country, folk songs."
This inspiration is heard within 'Homage' as he and bandmate David Quon (Mikky Ekko, Banks) seem to push against traditional production with great success as they shed new musical and melodic light on these tracks.
Using lush, atmospheric instrumentation, this is a record that seems perfectly suited for a long drive up the coast at dusk; a place where Bootstraps' music seems to testify the loudest. And it's on these highways, that 'Homage' is sure to find a wide and captive audience.
