We ain't got nothin' on you kid. But what we do have is somethin' on Bootstraps.
ARTISTdirect is pulling you up by your Bootstraps.
We're premiering Bootstraps' live video for "Nothin' on You Kid."
It's from their self-titled album, out now on Harvest Records.
The band is comprised of frontman Jordan Beckett, Chris Jaymes, We Barbarians member David Quon and as well as ex-Cold War Kids drummer Matt Aveiro. The L.A.-based group has drawn comparisons to acts such as Band of Horses, Bon Iver and Ray LaMontagne.
Beckett spoke to ARTISTdirect about the song, saying, "This song was written in Norm's Rare Guitars. It's a legendary shop that sells really high-end vintage guitars. I was driving up the 101 to visit a friend and stopped in to play this Gibson acoustic that I'd always wanted. I'd been messing around with this chord progression and refrain. When I picked up the guitar, the song came out in that moment and I sang the whole song into my phone in the guitar shop. When I signed with Capitol and got my advance, I bought the guitar, which is the Gibson I'm playing in the video."
That's the love between an artist and an instrument!
With that in mind, allow this live video to transport you and to put you front and center.
