Opening Act


James Austin Murray, known polyonymously as JAM or JAM NOW, is a singer-songwriter, activist and multi-instrumentalist from Phoenix, AZ.

Thank you from all of us at Opening Act and the MusiCares Foundation for helping us provide health, financial, and rehabilitation resources to musicians in their time of need.

What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

Being a musician is the food I eat and the air I breathe. The freedom of being creative and allowing your imagination to flourish is a bliss unlike any other; and to share that with an audience is such a rewarding experience.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

It's always been a dream of mine to write a song with Paul McCartney.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

I would put it towards promoting new music I'll be releasing.
