On Thursday, June 3, national touring act, Early James, will be live at Smoot's Grocery on The Natchez Bluff!
The stage name of wry and soulful Alabama singer/songwriter Frederick James Mullis Jr., Early James draws from a deep well of American roots music. Backed by upright bassist Adrian Marmolejo, James' expressive voice and stripped-down blend of Southern blues, country, folk, and jazz evokes Jason Isbell by way of early Tom Waits and Harry Chapin. In 2019, James inked a deal with Black Keys' Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound and headed into the studio to lay down tracks for a debut album. The deeply southern and luminous Singing for My Supper, which featured a full-band, was released in 2020.
