Jim James

Saturday August 11  |  7:00pm - 11:00pm
KCRW HQ - Santa Monica
Folk / Indie / Singer-Songwriter


Although chiefly known as the frontman of My Morning Jacket, rock singer and songwriter Jim James played a wider role in indie rock during the early 21st century, appearing on albums by several artists (including Bright Eyes, M. Ward, America, and Bobby Bare, Jr.) while pursuing a solo career. His approach on each album is different. His debut was 2009's Tribute To, a short collection of intimate George Harrison covers recorded shortly after the guitarist's death in 2001. That said, his kaleidoscopic approach to his own material knows few limits, and his albums are so different from one another, they could be by different artists. Released in 2013, Regions of Light and Sound of God was a bright -- even giddy -- exercise in spirituality expressed by a truckload of styles and instrumentation, while its follow-up, 2016's Eternally Even, showcased a spacy, psychedelic, jazzy approach to 21st century soul and moody nocturnal funk infused with indie pop cool.

On this night, Jim James will treat the crowd to a luscious solo acoustic performance, “exploring songs stripped down as they first occurred in their natural habitat — just voice and guitar”.
