Last year was certainly busy for the singing sensation James Vincent McMorrow, having already collaborated with Kygo on his single “I’m In Love”, had his music been streamed over 100 million times and had his cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” used on the trailer for hit HBO series Game Of Thrones.
The Irish musician’s career first started whilst working in partnership with fellow talent Aisling Fagan before striking out as a solo artist.
His first album Early In The Morning was released in 2011 and drew comparisons with Bon Ivor for both its style and the recording techniques implemented in its making. He also made an appearance on Later… With Jools Holland in the same year.
McMorrow drew on wider inspiration for his second album Post Tropical which moved in more of a soulful direction. The 2014 record was influenced by hip hop beats rather than indie folk and made use of electronic instruments and drum machines. It included the songs Glacier and Cavalier.
The expansion into new sounds certainly went down well with audiences and critics as it shot to #2 in the Irish Album Charts, #3 in the UK Independent Album Charts and won him the Choice Music Prize. He also played to sold out shows across the world while promoting the album.
In 2015 he was commissioned to compose a score for the short film Martha by Director Sam Benenati.
