If you're born in Louisville, you're playing the blues before you can walk. It's practically a birthright in that town,
to grow up immersed in a culture that oozes bluesy music and charm from every surface, like an ingrained varnish that will
never fade. It was into this soulful world that Jim James was born and raised. He's made quite a name for himself as the lead
vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for rock sensation My Morning Jacket, and now he's really showing off his skills and strutting
his stuff with his latest solo album, a range of tracks that taps into the roots of his hometown while taking the blues in
a bold new direction and giving it a decidedly modern polish. Score Jim James concert
tickets from StubHub to see this visionary musician live!

history and what James sees as its future. The history is easily apparent as is his bold, shiny, accelerated vision of rock,

When Jim James released Regions of Light and Sound of God, his first solo work and a significant departure from his work
with My Morning Jacket, critics fans were floored. Everyone knew James was a prodigious musician with considerable talent

after just a few notes of Regions of Light and Sound of God nobody saw coming. A mesmerizing work of art from start to finish,
this album shines a very bright light on James and places him squarely in the pantheon of rock's greatest stars, and the opportunity
