I was moved to tears last summer as I stood at the Guthrie Archives in Tulsa listening to him sing this song and singing along, while looking at his original hand-written copy of the lyrics, words that ring with such vital truth and speak so deeply to the soul of everyone who hears them. We are so thrilled to sing these lyrics once again, and have it benefit an initiative we care so deeply about protecting and preserving our countrys vital resources.</p> <p class="p1">"This partnership with The North Face and My Morning Jacket is really about inspiring and preparing the next generation of conservation leaders and outdoor stewards, said Secretary Jewell. The funding will help put young people and veterans to work restoring and protecting our nations land, water and wildlife whether thats building trails in national parks or removing invasive species in national wildlife refuges. The 21CSC not only helps meet critical needs on our nations public lands, but also provides valuable job training and a connection to the great outdoors that will last these young people a lifetime.</p> <p class="p1"><strong><a href="" target="_blank">Download on iTunes</a></strong></p> <p><object height="315" width="560"><param name="movie" value="//" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" height="315" src="//" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560"></embed></object></p> <p>From <a href=""></a></p>Mon, 27 Oct 2014 15:43:00 -0700 The Influence: Jim James<br /><img src="" /><br /><p><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="380" src="" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>From <a href=""></a></p>Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:19:00 -0700 One Big Holiday 2015 Set Times<br /><img src="" /><br /><p class="p1">OBH 2015 set times just announced!

The trio is rounded out by guitarist Adrian Quesada (formerly of Grupo Fantasma) and guitarist and lead vocalist Dante Schwebel (City and Colour, formerly of Hacienda).</p> <p class="p1">Rolling Stone recently premiered the albums first single <b>"<a href="" target="_blank">Out On The Street</a>,</b>" praise, "every once in a while, you come across the real deal. Such is the case with Spanish Golds Out on the Street, a heady number that slinks along like Rockwells s Watching Me, trading in synth-goofiness for tight bursts of Black Keys guitar.</p> <p class="p1">On making the new album, Schwebel comments, We kept finding that we had a lot of the same reference points during the recording. It became evident that we were still children of the MTV era. We grew up with MTV when it was still a music channel. The way that the programming crossed genres from R&B to hip hop, rock, soul and pop music is how we approach records. Its an album of all those styles. Like watching a random hour of MTV programming circa 1986-1996. Its a nod to Michael Jackson, Dr. Dre, Madonna, the Beastie Boys or Tom Petty, all with a Texas border town setting. It all adds up to a fun listen that you can keep on repeat.</p> <p><iframe frameborder="no" height="150" scrolling="no" src="" width="100%"></iframe></p> <p class="p1">Download on <a href="" target="_blank">iTunes</a></p> <p class="p1">Download on <a href="" target="_blank">Amazon</a></p> <p>From <a href=""></a></p>Wed, 26 Feb 2014 09:32:00 -0800 MMJ Archive Series<br /><img src="" /><br /><p>Were kicking off a new archive series today with a special show from December 2nd, 2011 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA.</p> <p>Download the show <strong><a href="" target="_blank">here</a></strong>.</p> <p>From <a href=""></a></p>Tue, 21 Jan 2014 15:53:00 -0800 Wareham Announces Solo Album<br /><img src="" /><br /><p class="p1">Dean Warehams first full-length solo LP, will be released March 11 on Double Feature (USA) and Sonic Cathedral (Europe). 9 new songs, produced by Jim James, recorded at Jims studio in Louisville, Kentucky.

"Perhaps sounding as if it were the past of the future, if that makes any senselike a hazy dream that a fully-realized android or humanoid capable of thought might have when it reminisces about the good old days of just being a simple robot."</p> <p class="p1">"I take walks a lot," says <strong>Jim James</strong>, "and as I walk, songs kind of build in my mind, and I start adding and subtracting things. So I had a full vision for a lot of the songs on this album before I even recorded one note." These visions have now manifested as <em><strong>Regions and Light and Sound of God</strong></em>, the first solo album from the singer, songwriter, and guitarist for <strong>My Morning Jacket</strong>, which is set to be released <strong>February 5th</strong> on <strong>ATO Records</strong>. Over the course of fifteen years and six studio albums, James has been the focal point of a group that has grown into one of the most acclaimed and successful rock and roll bands in the world. With this project, he reaches into new territory that extends, but doesn't break from, MMJ's accomplishments.<br /> <br /> Until now, James had never felt the call to create a longer-form album on his own. "Im very lucky to play in a band with guys that I love, who are great at what they do," he says, "so on MMJ records, I dont have a need to play bass or keys or what have you. But as a person and as a musician, I love to play every instrument under the sun, and I wanted to make a record where I played all the instruments and produced/engineered it myself."</p> <p class="p1">For <em>Regions of Light and Sound of God</em>, there was one specific source that shaped many of the songs, and even figures into the album titlea pioneering 1929 graphic novel called <em>Gods Man</em>, by Lynd Ward. Told entirely through wordless woodcuts, the book chronicles an artists struggle with temptation and corruption, along with finding true love. As work on the album proceeded, James was inspired to write music that could accompany the book. <em>God's Man</em> came to me at a very important time, he says. Some of the things happening in the book were happening to me in real life, in a very strange and painful, then a very beautiful way. <br /> <br /> Solo albums by members of bands, especially lead singers, can often be scattershot, collections of odds and ends built up over the years with no true sense of purpose. But <em>Regions of Light and Sound of God</em> is precisely the oppositethe clarity with which Jim James came into this album rings from first note to last.<br /> <br /> The album knew what it wanted to be, says James. The songs would tell me what they wanted to be, and I just had to search around and find those sounds to bring them into this world.</p> <p class="p1">Pre-order <em>Regions of Light and Sound of God</em> <strong><a href="" target="_blank">here</a></strong>.</p><p>From <a href=""></a></p>Mon, 12 Nov 2012 08:30:00 -0800 Chester Lineup Announced<br /><img src="" /><br /><p>My Morning Jacket welcomes <a href="" target="_blank">Deer Tick</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">Antibalas</a>, and <a href="" target="_blank">Floating Action</a> to the Port Chester lineup, December 27th - 29th.

This is what the no-nonsense Secret Service agent asked several of us. We had just walked offstage after performing at the national Christmas tree lighting ceremony, held every year since 1923 in President's Park, just south of the White House. I was honored to have been chosen in 2010 to sing perhaps my favorite Christmas standard, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," accompanied beautifully by the U.S. Coast Guard Band. Talk about surreal but I had a really nice time and thought the performance went well, considering the level of stress that comes with a high-profile event like that.</p> <p>It was FREEZING cold outside but obviously everyone was excited at the prospect of meeting the PREZ, so we ducked outside and stood in line by a smaller tent allegedly housing Barack and Michelle. Ahead of me in line was 10-year-old TV singing sensation Jackie Evancho (who did sing quite beautifully) and her father. When they reached the tent, the two Secret Service guys on either side of the door said "One at a time sir..." as Jackie and her dad tried to enter together. "But she's my daughter!" exclaimed Dad. "Well ALRIGHT," said Secret Service Dude, and sent them both inside.</p> <p>As I stood there waiting I must say I was perhaps more nervous than I had ever been in my life and I have found myself in some pretty nerve-racking situations. But then before I could think about it any longer, "Poof!" they pulled back the curtain, Jackie and her dad left, and I was ushered inside. It was a narrow tent, with a long red carpet leading the way to the President and First Lady of the United States of America standing tall at the end. The red carpet must have been 1000 miles long at least it seemed 1000 miles long to me as I strolled down the path but when I reached the end, the pomp and circumstance seemed to fall away, and there were two real people there, real people who reached out, gave me a big hug, and said thanks for coming ... and just like most everything that comes out of their mouths, you could tell they really meant it. They were no longer the President and First Lady there in that tent. They were REAL. Somehow in those three minutes they made me feel at ease and conveyed the truth of the human experience: that no one is any better or worse than anyone else.</p> <p>Standing there getting our picture taken ... it was SO strange, being this close to a real live president. I thought of all the times I had seen him on TV, especially election night in 2008 watching with tears in my eyes as the Obama family took the stage after winning the election, thinking to myself what so many others were thinking: "Finally!!! Sweet justice! A real live person is our president! Who has a real live family and a loving relationship with his wife! A president that does not seem like an evil robot!!!" What a revelation it was. And standing right next to them, that feeling was confirmed to me even deeper that these were real people who know what it is like to live real life and deal with real struggles that ordinary Americans face every day. What an incredible thing to see and feel after watching way too many wealthy, out-of-touch presidents and their families take office. Here was something in politics that finally made sense to me and so many others.</p> <p>I was about to start blathering out classic lines like "Thanks!" or "Hey, you're doing a great job!" but the Secret Service guy burst in, shattering my reverie, and barked: "Alright kid, move it along. NEXT!" We all laughed at that and I was on my way.</p> <p> JIM JAMES<br /> Louisville, Kentucky</p><p>From <a href=""></a></p>Wed, 05 Sep 2012 10:50:00 -0700 For Levon<br /><img src="" /><br /><p>We are honored to be a part of the Love For Levon benefit on Oct 3rd.
