James Vincent McMorrow

Early In The Morning
Amazon MP3 Download


James Vincent McMorrow is a product of Dublin, Ireland. He has toured with the likes of Tracy Chapman, Bon Iver, and Iron and Wine. This singer and songwriter is renowned for his rich falsetto voice. I can only imagine that seeing him live would be a treat because his recorded music has an organic feel. As if in the recording session the whole band sat down, hit record, and started playing. His natural talent is undeniable and his up and coming nature speaks for itself. His debut full-length album, Early In the Morning, released on, Vagrant records is a showcase of his songwriting and vocal talents. He recorded the eleven song album by himself in a cottage near his home.

Of the album itself McMorrow described it as being, "Harmony-driven pastoral folk-pop music, in a nutshell!" Which might not be for all audiences but I am sure that some will find the warm tones and rich harmonies right at home in their musical tastes. The album has a flow to it that takes the listener on a journey from start to finish and leaves the listener satisfied and wanting for more. The album first became available in the U.S.in January of this year after being released in Europe for some time. I hope that my U.S. listeners will find this Dubliner at home in their musical collections. The album is well worth the price tag as you will be listening to it for days.
