Jim James

by Metroland Staff on June 19, 2013



Regions of Light and Sound of God is the immaculate title of Jim James’ debut solo album. The My Morning Jacket frontman has been involved with a number of projects away from his Louisville-based rock band—namely Monsters of Folk, a Woody Guthrie Tribute and an EP of George Harrison covers under the spanglified pseudonym Yim Yames—but James has outdone himself for this official debutante outing, and the live YouTube footage looks incredible. If his band weren’t touring with Bob Dylan and Wilco later this summer for the Americanarama Festival, they might be nervous he’d go awol.
