McMorrow’s musical life began far removed from the haunting folk and mythic imagery of his debut album ‘Early in The Morning’ - an atmospheric and absorbing listen. Although the album’s conception inevitably draws comparisons with Bon Iver and his cabin, throughout the record you can hear the overtones of his Irish upbringing brought together with more traditional American West Coast sounds. James Vincent McMorrow has taken a somewhat circuitous route to success (hardcore rock, hip hop, a house by the Irish Sea). Yet he has emerged as a quite brilliant new talent. James is currently working on his new album.
