About James Morrison
James Morrison is a singer-songwriter from Rugby in England. He is renowned for his top-selling singles including Broken Strings and Wonderful World. He released his first single in 2006, the hit song You Give Me Something. His first album, Undiscovered, also went to the top of the album chart in UK, and just a year later, Morrison won a BRIT Award in the Best British Male category.
His second album was released in 2008, called Songs for You, Trusts for Me. It reached the top five in the UK album chart and topped the Irish album chart, featuring the hit singles, Broken Strings and You Make It Real.
Morrison's early influences included soul, country and folk, and he credits his uncle with teaching him guitar by intriguing him with a blues riff. Influential artists included Al Green, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder and Van Morrison. His career began while busking in Cornwall as a teenager and he has always said that his distinctive vocals were the result of a near-fatal bout of whooping cough as a baby, which permanently affected his vocal cords.
In total Morrison has put out five studio albums including his latest record, You're Stronger Than You Know, which came out earlier this year.
