James Vincent McMorrow.

Drawing clear comparisons to the brilliant Bon Iver, Irishman James Vincent McMorrow’s soulful voice has recently grabbed my attention, despite releasing his debut album almost a year ago. ‘If I Had A Boat’ starts with layered vocals reminiscent of Bon Iver’s ‘Woods’, whilst McMorrow’s voice is arguably more soulful in style. To further the comparison, he spent 5 months recording his debut LP, Early In The Morning, isolated in a home by the sea. The lyricism is deep and concentrated in emotion, whilst the beautifully crafted songs build around them to complete a package that is worthy of its complimentary comparison.
