The Dublin born singer-songwriter returns to the road
Growing up in Dublin with a love of heavy alternative music, James Vincent McMorrow first picked up the guitar at the age of 19 following an introduction to the comparably intimate sound of Donny Hathaway and Sufjan Stevens. Inspired to write his own songs and building on his distinctive vocal register, McMorrow soon began to perform in local pubs. His debut self-titled EP quickly followed, forming the basis for his first full-length album, Early In The Morning in 2010.
Released by Believe Digital in the UK and picked up by Vagrant Records in the United States, Early In The Morning rapidly propelled McMorrow forwards, securing a coveted spot on Later... With Jools Holland and reaching Platinum status. McMorrow's cover of Steve Winwood's Higher Love was picked up by LOVEFiLM for an advertisement campaign, gathering significant attention and leading to the reissue of his debut including the track alongside an acoustic version of We Don't Eat.
Blending R&B with his folk roots, McMorrow began working on his 2014 follow-up Post Tropical. The record saw him land on the official UK album chart top 40, reach No.2 in Ireland, and made a dent on the stateside Billboard 100. His global popularity further increased when McMorrow recorded a cover of Chris Isaak's Wicked Game, used in the series six trailer for hit HBO series Game Of Thrones.
Continuing to blur musical boundaries, McMorrow teamed up with Kygo on Cloud Nine, and with Drake as guest vocalist on Hype. McMorrow then joined a series of high profile producers for the release of his third studio album We Move in September 2016. Less than a year later, he unveiled his fourth full-length record True Care.
Independently racking up over 750 million streams, James Vincent McMorrow returned in 2020 with the singles Headlights and I Should Go, both taken from his fifth studio album released later in the year. Marking ten years since his Early In The Morning debut, the tracks represented McMorrow's acceptance of the uncontrollable chaos of life. "To say I'm getting more comfortable with my chaos is probably untrue, doubt I'll ever be comfortable," he said of I Should Go. "But I do understand it a little more, and I think I embrace it a little more; embrace the chaos of it all."
In early 2021, James Vincent McMorrow was announced as part of the line-up for this year's Isle Of Wight Festival and a series of UK headline dates in support of his fifth studio album were rescheduled to February and April 2022.
