Seth James grew up in West Texas ranch country so rural that he had a high school graduating class of two, and where a cowboy still could — and Seth James did — pull a chuck wagon out and sleep there on the ground. But his father and grandfather were both musicians, and he was raised to the sounds of such “soul meets country roadhouse” practitioners as Leon Russell and Delbert McClinton. He came to love as he says, “anything that has that dirt on it, whether it’s Levon helm or Springsteen.” He spent much time in high school in the 90s “learning the Creedence songs they never played on the radio,” and honing his guitar skills. He released his first solo project Bad Luck & Trouble in 2001 and followed it up with That Kind of Man in 2009. In early 2011 he joined forces with Cody Canada, Jeremy Plato and Steve Littleton to form The Departed recording This Is Indian Land in 2011 and in ADVENTUS in 2012.
