'No limits' for My Morning Jacket (Created 10/10/2013)
Jim James' beard didn't make him famous, but it certainly furthered the cause of the MMJ (My Morning Jacket) founder, who has fronted the band since its inception in 1998.
Called a hillbilly hipster, and even compared to Lynyrd Skynyrd and Radiohead, My Morning Jacket has been a mostly successful smash-up of alt-country rock. For their first two albums – 1999's "The Tennessee Fire" and 2001's "At Dawn" – they even garnered reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone that mentioned, "My Morning Jacket are going nowhere fast – but in all the right ways."
A few lineup changes and James' ever-growing beard were all it took to work out the kinks for MMJ. Next thing you know they were experimenting with dub, reggae and even psychedelic rock. Their 2005 album "Z" was said to be a giant step forward for the band, and landed on a couple lists for Best Albums of the Decade.
Hailed as a 'premium' live act, MMJ continued to enhance its reputation with works like 2008's eclectic "Evil Urges." The album was played in its entirety – all 14 tracks – during the band's now-legendary four-hour set at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. Their rise to rock stardom was pretty quick after that, and the band has embraced the legend of their live performances.
Work has also begun on MMJ's upcoming seventh studio album, and they're throwing the rule book out the window. James made the announcement during a small show at the Apogee Studios in Santa Monica, California on September 18, 2013. He noticed that My Morning Jacket doesn't 'put limits on anything.' They're currently in the process of tracking down a new recording location after using a church gymnasium for their previous project.
