James Morrison is heading back to the states for, surprisingly, his FIRST headlining tour. It’s been a season of firsts for James as The Awakening, his latest record, is also his first record as a father. The Awakening is the third full-length release from James Morrison, following his debut Undiscovered and sophomore record Songs for You, Truths for Me.
You’ve probably seen him on Jimmy Kimmel Live and heard him singing alongside Jason Mraz during “Details in the Fabric,” from Mraz’s latest record We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. His unique voice and positive approach to songwriting make James so so special. If you can help it, don’t miss out on his show in your city.
I was poking around on the net and I found this very fitting description of James: “It is rare to see a musician that’s graced with so much natural talent, rarer still to see one who is as genuinely humble about things as Morrison. Six years after being catapulted into the limelight, he’s still the shy lad from the West Midlands whose hoarse voice stands apart from any of his contemporaries.” – The Copenhagen Post (March 7, 2012)
