James Vincent McMorrow
Irish Folk/Acoustic is in a great place at the moment, with Domino Records' Villagers achieving world-wide acclaim and the extremely promising O Emperor starting to make waves within their relevant circles. Well, welcome to the fray the next challenger -Dublin's James Vincent McMorrow. If I Had A Boat is the song of his which has received the most cyber lovin' to date, but it's Sparrow & the Wolf which first grabbed by attention, and which I believe is the strongest showcase so far of his most potent weapon - his haunting and strangely warming falsetto. This Old Dark Machine is the latest cut to emerge ahead of his debut album Early In The Morning - out Jan 25th on Vagrant - which is promising to be a very good record indeed.
