Jump to “More items of this artist”

James McMurtry veröffentlicht meiner seiner Tourband The Heartless Bastards sein erstes Live-Album, "Live In Aught-Three", gleichzeitig sein erstes Album für Compadre Records. McMurtry, der als einer der besten Singer/Songwriter seiner Zunft angesehen wird, nahm das Album bei verschiedenen Konzerten auf: Im "Zephyr" in Salt Lake City, in Nashvilles "12th & Porter" und eines im "Orange Peel" von Asheville, NC. Live In Aught-Three fängt die Energie und Spielfreude einer der derzeit besten Live-Bands verzüglich ein.
13 der 14 Songs stammen von McMurtrys bisher erschienenen sechs Alben, "Lights Of Cheyenne" ist bisher noch unveröffentlicht.
McMurtry wurde in den frühen 60er Jahren in Fort Worth geboren. Sein erstes Konzert war Johnny Cash mit der Carter Family, Carl Perkins und die Statler Brothers. Kris Kristofferson war in den folgenden Jahren ein großer Einfluss auf ihn.
Mit 25 Jahren schrieb er seinen ersten kompletten Song, 1989 produzierte John Mellencamp sein Debütalbum für Columbia Records, "Too Long In Wasteland". "Candyland" folgte 1992, anschließend erschien "Where'd You Hide The Body" (1995), produziert von Don Dixon. Danach wechselte er zu Sugarhill Records und brachte 1998 gleich 2 Alben heraus, "It Had To Hapen" und "Walk Between The Raindrops (produziert von Lloyd Maines), sowie im Jahr 2002 sein bisher letztes Studioalbum "Saint Mary Of The Woods".


James McMurtry and his band, the Heartless Bastards, are ready to unleash their first live album, "Live In Aught-Three", their first for Compadre Records. McMurtry, widely hailed as one of the greatest musical interpreters of American life, recorded the album inside of two shows at the Zephyr in Salt Lake City, one at Nashville’s 12th & Porter, and one at the Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C. Live in Aught-Three captures the energy and musicianship of one of the tightest bands around.
13 out of 14 of the album’s live tracks have their origins in McMurtry’s acclaimed six-album-deep catalog with the exception of a previously unreleased solo performance, “Lights of Cheyenne.”
McMurtry was born in Fort Worth in the early ‘60s. His father, author Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms of Endearment), exposed his son to what he called “hillbilly music” with an abundance of Johnny Cash and Roy Acuff records. The first concert he attended was Johnny Cash with the Carter Family, Carl Perkins and the Statler brothers sitting in. Kris Kristofferson became a central influence going forward.
McMurtry wrote his first full song (as opposed to song fragments) at 25 and enlisted John Mellencamp to produce Too Long In Wasteland, his 1989 debut for Columbia Records. Candyland followed in 1992, with the Don Dixon-produced Where’d You Hide The Body in 1995. Segueing from Columbia to Sugar Hill, he released both "It Had To Happen" and "Walk Between The Raindrops" (produced by Lloyd Maines) in 1998, and "Saint Mary Of The Woods" (self-produced and featuring his road band) in 2002.
