Seth James Band
Growing up, I spent the majority of my life on a horse, James recalls. It was the kind of ranch where we would do things the old-fashioned way, whether it was herding the cattle, bringing out the chuckwagon to feed the cowboys, or camping on the trail under the stars. To this day I still prefer to sleep on the ground.

Not surprisingly then, the romantic road stories shared by his forebears had an important influence of Jamess decision to pursue his passion. Early on, he taught himself to play guitar, mostly by learning the songs of Lightning Hopkins, Freddy King and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Years later in college, I had a regular gig at a juke joint called the Big Wheel in Navasota, Texas where Lightning and Mance Lipscomb spent many years, he remembers.  It was fun to play for their family members and to hear stories from their relatives first-hand accounts.

In 1996 Seth got his first Fender Stratocaster and quickly discovered the sheer power and expression thats possible by playing an electric guitar. As a young man, I was drawn to the music that was coming out of Lubbock and Fort Worth, he recalls. The early influences of Joe Ely, Delbert McClinton, Stephen Bruton, and Doyle Bramhall Sr. ultimately led me too many of the musicians that impacted me later on, such as Frankie Miller and Freddie King.

Over the course of his career, James has had the opportunity to share the stage with many of his heroes, among them, Percy Sledge, Little Feat, Delbert McClinton, Buddy Guy, Tab Benoit,  ZZ Top,  Little Feat, Lee Roy Parnell, Leon Russell, and Billy Joe Shaver. Hes released three solo albums, most notably 2009s critically acclaimed effort That Kind of Man. In 2010, he joined forces with Cody Canada and formed The Departed, with whom he spent three years and recorded two albums. Ultimately, he opted to return to his roots and his primary passion, which was to fashion a sound infused with the blues.

Come to the show. Bring a friend. Bring your spouse. Bring your favorite beverage. But most of all bring a warm smile and a great Eden welcome to the artists coming to our home. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 day of show. But hurry, this show is expected to sell out, and there will be no standing room tickets sold.
