Jim James has spent the better part of almost two decades as the lead singer and songwriter of My
Morning Jacket. Through six studio albums, My Morning Jacket has grown into one of the most acclaimed rock and roll bands in the world.
Alongside the band's recording and touring, James has maintained a steady flow of work. In 2009, he released the Tribute To EP, with his versions of six George Harrison songs. He has also lent his voice to albums by the likes of the Decemberists, the Roots, America, Booker T. Jones, and the Preservation
Hall Jazz Band, and recorded and toured with the Monsters of Folk—which teamed him up with Conor Oberst, M. Ward, and Mike Mogis—and participated in the Woody Guthrie tribute album New Multitudes alongside Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, and Anders Parker.
In 2013, James will release his debut solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God. The album demonstrates James' soulful songwriting, and showcases his captivating voice and talents as both a producer and engineer.
