the magnetism of Jim James

Sometimes one’s lack of the details can lead to unexpected rewards. A case in point was the random buying of ticket to see the band, My Morning Jacket, in Hollywood at the Fonda Theatre.

Not until I was underneath the marquee did i realize that I wasn’t seeing My Morning Jacket, but instead the charismatic front man and lead singer, Jim James.
He just released his solo effort, Regions of Light and Sound of God. Rumor is that he has found religion, started on a spiritual journey, connected with God.

His voice is so pure, that it sounds like an angel upon the stage ( if one can imagine what an angel would sound like).

As a songwriter, his lyrics are mesmerizing. When he jams, you become transported to a different era. Part James Taylor, part Jim Morrison, all Jim James.
