Tonight we feature the Irish Singer/Songwriter artist, James Vincent McMorrow. Born in 1983, James didn’t begin playing music until his late teens. James got his start in the music scene as a drummer but was drawn to a softer sound and began playing the guitar at the age of 19. He was influenced by the sounds of Sufjan Stevens and Band Of Horses. As James developed as an artist he began playing shows in local pubs and received great praise.
In 2010 James moved to a small house on the Irish coastline with his guitar and a few other necessities. There he recorded what would be his debut EP. It was released shortly thereafter and was recieved with high praise and even went Platinum. In 2013 James moved to a studio in Texas where he would record his second album. The album, Post Tropical, was released this last November and differs greatly from his debut album.
James has been an all time favorite of mine so it’s really hard for me to pick only a few songs to share. I’ve posted the ones that I think will show you the incredible range of talent he has. I’ve also shared a Chris Isaak cover that I had the luck of stumbling upon. James will also be perfoming this August in SLC, so hopefully I’ll see you there. Enjoy, and thanks for reading The Print!
