There's a blues singer that plays around the LA area and other places as well. His name is Jake Labotz. I first saw this guy in a movie, a prison flick called 'Animal Factory'. He plays an inmate (obviously) but they let him play his guitar and sing a couple of songs as part of his role in this movie. This guy is very good, he has a unique style. He kind of reminds me of a younger Tom Waits. Not that he imitates him, but he seems to take over the character he sings about. He's a white guy in his early 30's, covered in tatoos, singing like a deep blues singer. The reason why I mention this guy is if anyone knows who I'm talking about, let me know. He doesn't have a record deal, to my knowledge, but he should. I do know that he has a homemade CD called "Soundtrack To My Nightmare". I would love to find this, or any live recordings of this guy.
