My Morning Jacket's Two-Tone Tommy

On its 2003 breakout album, It Still Moves [ATO], My Morning Jacket jumped between indie country jangles, straightahead rock tunes, and spacey, reverb-glazed odes to lost love. Before the band began recording its follow-up, Z, the departures of guitarist John Quaid and keyboardist Danny Cash threatened to put a wrinkle in My Morning Jacket’s plans. But Two-Tone Tommy put a positive spin on the lineup change, taking the opportunity to push his own bass playing to the next level.
