According to a Facebook message I received (and verified via MySpace) from another Nashville musician, local singer-songwriter Tyler James has been tapped to join ever-growing indie-rock ensemble Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. James will assume duties as a touring keyboardist for a jaunt that will take him from festivals such as Bonnaroo and Coachella, to destinations as far reaching as Australia.
James does his regular Nashville thing on Mar. 5, when he returns to town to celebrate the release of his debut LP It Took the Fire, with a show at 12th & Porter.
