My husband is usually the one in the family that finds new-to-us music first, but I'm pretty pleased with myself for finding James Morrison and turning us on to his music. I'll admit I'm a sucker for british singer-songwriters, so when I first heard about him and his new album, "The Awakening," I was immediately interested, not to mention surprised I hadn't come across him before since he's been around for a while. When we were checking out his albums on iTunes we saw that he had worked with the likes of Jason Mraz and Nelly Frutado, too. He's a staple on our iPods now and I'm excited to help spread the word about him.
James Morrison's first 2 albums “Undiscovered" and “Songs for You, Truths for Me” have sold a combined total of 4.5 million copies and yielded an astonishing 10 singles! “The Awakening” is a warm, live-sounding collection of classic but contemporary folk-soul songs. There are nods to Motown, gospel, country and even a hint of Latin, so his music is bound to appeal to any taste. You'll find while listening through some of the tracks that Morrison also drew on his own experience of fatherhood, his daughter, Elsie, is now 3, and parenthood is definitely something we call can relate to.
His newest singles “I Won’t Let You Go” and “One Life” are just brilliant, but my favorite album track is "Beautiful Life." It's the kind of song that's upbeat and with feel-good lyrics. It's something I enjoy listening to with the radio turned up in the car and windows rolled down while I'm out running errands.
