Dennis Quaid & Jamie James Chat Their New Album, "Out Of The Box"

Dennis Quaid & The Sharks origins can be traced to a night when Quaid went to see actor Harry Dean Stanton and his longtime band perform in Los Angeles. Quaid was invited to join the band onstage. At first reluctant, because of his decade-long layoff from music, Quaid finally acquiesced, and his performance sparked a musical kinship between Jamie James—guitar player in Stanton’s band and the Kingbees’ front man—and Quaid that led to them forming their own band. Now, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks have made the first studio album of their 18-year history, "Out Of The Box," and on it listeners will find they specialize in “rock ’n’ roll and country-soul,” or as Quaid calls it, “a junkyard of American music.”
