On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Spin Doctors’ landmark debut album Pocket Full of Kryptonite in 2011, the band’s four original members-frontman Barron, guitarist Eric Schenkman, bassist Mark White and drummer Aaron Comess-can still appreciate the uncanny, enduring musical rapport that’s allowed them to maintain the upbeat energy and restless creativity that first endeared them to their fiercely devoted fan base.

Pocket Full of Kryptonite elevated the Spin Doctors from a grass-roots local phenomenon to a world-class recording act. Such enduring signature tunes as “Two Princes,” “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” “Jimmy Olsen’s Blues,” “What Time Is It?” and “Forty or Fifty” embody the band’s trademark mix of hit songwriting, a funky sensibility and wildly adventurous instrumental acrobatics.

They’re back on tour celebrating the release of their latest album, If The River Was Whiskey.

James Maddock
James Maddock was born in Leicester, England and grew up surrounded by music. Between listening to his grandfather on the ukulele and his father on the trombone, he quickly found that music was in his blood. This curiosity led him to start playing an old guitar that he discovered while exploring his house. Not long after this discovery, James was teaching himself the ropes by playing along to records of bands like the Eagles and Neil Young.

After playing in a few school bands, James decided to play professionally and became a regular performer at clubs around the Midlands in England. James further refined his skills as a songwriter and performer in London, eventually landing a demo session at the famed Abbey Road Studios. As a result, his music came to the attention of Columbia Records in New York City. In the end, James walked away with the record deal that enabled him to take his band "Wood" into the studio.

The record "Songs from Stamford Hill" (a reference to where he was living at the time) was born. "Stay You", the single from the album became a top 5 hit on the Adult Alternative charts. Songs from the album found homes on the first "Dawsons Creek", and the major motion picture "Serendipity", both substantial placements for a debut artist.

James toured with the US with Train, Paula Cole, Meshell Ngegecello as well as headlined shows all over the states. Since leaving Columbia, James has moved to New York and signed an exclusive publishing deal with Razor and Tie Music Publishing. His band features Spin Doctors drummer Aaron Comess and newly signed Ryko recording artist Leslie Mendelson.

James regularly plays at the famous Rockwood Music Hall, and has just recorded an EP of brand new songs. You can hear some of these songs on ABC Family's "Wildfire", as well as find the EP on iTunes, Rhapsody, and awarestore.com.
