The SXSW Music Conference is pleased to announce Jim James as a featured interviewee for the 2013 event.
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. In 2009, he released the Tribute To EP, with his versions of six George Harrison songs. He has also lent his voice to albums by the likes of The Decemberists, The Roots, America, Booker T. Jones, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He recorded and toured with the Monsters of Folk—which teamed him up with Conor Oberst, M. Ward, and Mike Mogis—and participated in the Woody Guthrie tribute album New Multitudes alongside Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, and Anders Parker.
