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 love Seth James and his music, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to see him in 2 years. Everytime I try to go to a venue where he is playing, he has been cancelled. I wonder what the deal is? He's an awesome blues performer, and I love watching him play his guitar. Hope to see him soon!

I know several fans including myself who are wondering where he's at. Surely it doesn't take this long to write and record a new studio album. I know he got married to Jessica Murray from Cory Morrow's band, so maybe he and Jessica are spending time together. I thought maybe they're focusing on her solo career but I haven't heard anything about her either. According to LoneStarMusic.com, Seth is playing in Fredericksburg at Auslander Biergarten on 3/16/2007. It's the Auslander Spring Music Festival. First show I've heard of in a while. He normally plays at the big ski trip (themusicfest.com) in January every year, but not this year. I'm concerned. Hope everything is okay with him!

I have also been wondering where Seth is. My best friend grew up with him and has been all over to see his shows. I saw him at the Blue Light in Lubbock with Wade Bowen on the Live Cd, but that was several years ago. I have never seen someone whale the guitar like he did that night with Wade. You name it and he can do it, behind the back, or with his toes. He is amazing, and I loved his music. Maybe my buddy will know whats up.

Like some other posters, I'm wondering what is the deal with Seth? I saw him in the fall of 2005, and they were talking about a new album. I haven't heard anything from him since. It's tough out there as a blues artist, but I was really hoping he was going to do well.

The absolute best encore performance, by far! we may be a little biased, but we love this guy and his music! We can't wait to hear "Chains at my Feet" live again like on the "live at Gruene Hall" album. Peace and love!

I bought both of Seth's CDs after seeing him play guitar at Billy Bob's recently. He didn't sing during this performance, but I have never seen such a fantastic guitar player. The CDs are awesome. He has a great voice for blues.

My son,Jesse 14, and I went to Gruene anxiously awaiting the Seth James concert. I went to the ATM and my card wouldn't work.We were devastated....Seth pulls up in a van and recognized my son as a fan.When I told him what was going on, he immediately reached in his pocket and gave us the money for the tickets."I don't want you guys to miss the show...." This is not only a talented guy, he is the NICEST person I have ever met!!! I paid him back when my sister arrived, and he was shaking it off....had to MAKE him take it.WHat a GREAT guy AND GREAT ARTIST!!!!!
