My Morning Jacket occupies an interesting space in the world of rock and roll. The band cites a long list of musical influences, with genres as varied as rock, pop, psychedelic, funk, jazz, electronic, and hip hop. Though they’d say rock and roll is probably the most apt description of their music. My Morning Jacket is known for delivering festival-headlining performances to rapt fans with an air of cool and confidence honed after over ten years on the musical scene. Their latest work is psychedelic and engrossing. Front man Jim James lets the music do the talking, often eschewing banter and monologues between songs entirely. James’ voice is equal parts velvety soft and raspy, and he’s an emotional and absorbing performer. Fans have compared them to a latter-day Fleetwood Mac and critics have heralded them as something akin to the Rolling Stones. Either way, My Morning Jacket holds their own on stage, delivering riveting performances of entrancing music that’s unlike just about anything else out there right now. They attract a wide array of fans, from newcomers to the music who are in their teens, to women in their 60s who hear hints of their older favorite bands in the music.
