New single “Common Roots” available on CD Baby, iTunes and Spotify.

Acoustic Rock and Country from Springsteen to Stapleton and from Dave Matthews to Johnny Cash.

Born and raised on the Jersey Shore, James Hood is a solo acoustic musician who has honed his craft in bars and music clubs much like Bruce Springsteen – a fellow New Jersey native and one of Hood’s heroes.
James Hood moved to the Lake George – Glens Falls, New York area in 1993. He has played in several bands since then and has been invited to share the stage with some of the region’s top musicians. He has been a respected solo artist for over 10 years.
Hood’s musical style could best be described as acoustic-friendly Rock and Country leaning heavily on great singer-songwriters like Neil Young, James Taylor, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, as well as newer artists such as Ryan Adams, Amos Lee, Jason Isbell and Chris Stapleton. Hood’s soulful voice is often compared to Cat Stevens.
In addition to playing regular music venues, James Hood is available to play weddings, private parties, corporate events and fundraisers.
