James Leg is raw, sharp and vigorous. Tours NL this month!14-11-2017
James Leg is raw, sharp and vigorous, the man with a voice like sandpaper. On stage, the American plays solid and psychedelic bluesrock with grumpy soul. Therefore, a comparison with Tom Waits is not totally crazy.
The son of a Texas preacher, raised in the South on gospel music, James Leg has cut his latest album in Chattanooga, Cincinnati, and Detroit, with a little help from his friends (Andy Jody, Johnny Walker, Left Lane Cruiser, Jim Diamond and others). Below The Belt is a record that hits where it matters : Straight to your heart, and down to your pelvis. It’s the kind of music that ain’t pretty but makes you feel good. The record is out now through Alive Records.
Really happy to have him return for a couple of shows in NL this month:
16-NOV: Haarlem (NL) @ Patronaat
28-NOV: Asten (NL) @ Het Spektakel
29-NOV: Utrecht (NL) @ dBs
30-NOV: Middelburg (NL) @ Kaffee t Hof
01-DEC: Amsterdam (NL) @ Pacific Parc
