SXSW Interview: Jim James
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, bordering on voracious, flow of work, including collaborations in Monsters Of Folk and his 'Tribute To' EP of George Harrison songs. James has recently released his debut solo album, 'Regions of Light and Sound of God.' The album demonstrates James' soulful songwriting, his captivating voice and showcases his talents as both a producer and engineer. Bill Flanagan of MTV Networks conducts this special SXSW interview.
