Not quite country, not quite rock--My Morning Jacket's music is undeniably haunting and emotionally charged. At its center is the heartrending, highly affecting voice of singer/songwriter Jim James. Hailing from Louisville, KY, My Morning Jacket first made a name for themselves with the release of their debut album, The Tennessee Fire, in 1999. A follow-up, At Dawn, was released in 2001, which helped win the band a devoted following in both the U.S. and Europe with its charming blend of rock, country and blues. The wide-ranging It Still Moves appeared in 2003, taking the band into new melodic, pop-oriented territory on tracks such as "Golden" and "Mahgeetah." The band released their fourth album, Z, in 2005, a further refinement of the group's immense songwriting skills and unique brand of Americana music.
