Seth James’ voice is as powerful as his uncontainable blues aura. Raised in King County, just north of Abilene, Texas, it is no surprise that he comes across as much of a Texan on the outside as he is on the inside. With a skilled piano player for a grandfather, and an accomplished drummer for a father, Seth James’ musical itch was inherited. After trying both piano and trumpet, Seth found his niche, when he started playing guitar in high school. The fates were surely at work when bassist Philip Tom realized that James had sold him his first bass while working at a local music store. Seth James and Philip Tom were to remain a magnetic musical pair, integrating their distinctive style drawing influence from artists like Bobby Mack, Doyle Bramhall, Albert Collins, Al Green, and Freddie King. Seth James soon made the move to Austin, Texas, which placed him in the “Mecca” of Texas music opportunity-- a place that has undoubtedly embraced this one of a kind talent. James’ debut album, Bad Luck and Trouble, stands as a glowing example of this songwriter’s ability to balance strong blues-rock progressions with introspective lyrics, all the while keeping fans on their toes. With native Texans Philip Tom on bass, Johnny Marshall on B3 organ and Ronnie Walker on drums, James’ second release, Live at Gruene Hall, captures the essence of this future Texas blues legend at his best. Seth James performs on both sides of the finely drawn line between blues and rock genres, combining firmly planted blues roots with impressive rock riffs. It doesn’t matter what label you can stamp on it…it’s just plain good. He has quickly captivated listeners and fans, and has created a marvel in the meantime.

I have been following this guy for a long time and he just get's better and better. He is what makes Texas Music what it is. And seeing him and Cody Canada get on stage and jam out is just awesomeness!

Seth James  06/03/2010            
Sorry i meant to give him 3 stars.
Seth James  06/03/2010            
Not a bad CD at all but probably a guy that belongs in Nashville and not so much Texas.
Seth James  03/04/2010            
Don't forget the greatness of Seth James.
Seth James  01/28/2010            
This dude can write, this dude can sing, this dude can play guitar like a %$&*(*#@ riot. Melodies as strong as Wade Bowen with a little more rock/blues guitar.
