American vocalist Jim James performs his first ever solo UK show in an intimated seated set-up as part of In the Round.

Jim James has spent the better part of almost two decades as the lead singer of rock band, My Morning Jacket. The band have released seven studio albums and have grown to become one of the most acclaimed rock and roll bands in the world.

In 2016 James released his politically charged single, Eternally Even. Rolling Stone described the record as, “nine flamboyantly spiritual songs wrapped in creamy electronics and set to funk and hip hop beats…an eccentric, gently compelling pleasure”.

His third album, Uniform Distortion received immediate acclaim upon it’s release and saw him embark on a national tour.

James has found himself in the touring company of artists such as Bob Dylan, Pearl Jam and Neil Young. He has embedded himself in the world of film and television, be it through the use of his music in various projects or his long-running relationships with those in the field.

Now in its fourth year, In the Round is our series of one-off intimate seated gigs that put you closer to the music. See the full line-up here.

The opportunities I’ve received as a result of the Roundhouse have changed my performance career.
