James McDoom / Bio

Born to raise hell. This ain't yer little sister's radio-pop country music. I'm a lonesome outlaw honky tonk rebel. Part Scots-Irish hillbilly; part Cherokee. I'm not from here - I only live here. I have been all over this land - you could say I've done my share of ramblin' 'round. I've been planted where I am for a few years now, but this isn't my home. Something tells me I have more wandering to do before it's over. Born in Dixie; raised one foot in the city, one foot in the country. I know 'bout a farm. I do not own a tractor but I have driven one. I dug potatoes outta the ground an I seen my pappy stick a pig. I like moonshine. I like the sun coming up over the mountains. My favorite place I ever lived was a little shack in the woods. I live to make music. I cut my teeth on Rock'nRoll, and Country music. I have been playing guitar for over 20 years, and I have played everything from extreme heavy metal to blues, rock, COUNTRY, folk, and R&B. I still like and support many different kinds of music, but these days I'm most into country. My influences for what I am doing now include Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, George Jones, Willie Nelson, and - you know - COUNTRY singers. I think I have become a much better singer since devoting myself entirely to country. I am seeking band members. I remember when country music was still country music.
