‘Sonically audacious, visually stunning and meticulously modern.’
Dublin-born singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow possesses an unearthly voice that is both heartbreaking and lofty.
Celebrating mental fragility with lyrical tenderness, McMorrow’s soulful, funk-infused tunes soar from folk to electronica. There’s no denying that lovers of Bon Iver, Ray LaMontagne and James Blake will be drawn to McMorrow’s splendour, but this Irish songsmith defies comparisons, drawing from a diverse palette that includes a range of influences from Pharrell Williams to Tool.
Rooted in traditional songsmithery, McMorrow is ambitious in his breadth, pushing the listener to the brink, where serenity meets electricity. Prepare to be engulfed in masterfully layered vocals, synths and soft percussion from an artist who is quite simply bewitching.
