James Vincent McMorrow releases his debut album 'Early In The Morning' via Vagrant Records, January 25th, 2011. I have to be honest after listening to the complete album for the third time the other day I was like Wow this guy has a voice and a song writing talent that will sell him some records.
To start off Early in the Morning with 'If I Had a Boat' you get the sense of what a talented song writer McMorrow is and it keeps you wanting more and more. Some other highlights on the album for me were 'Sparrow And The Wolf' and 'We Don't Eat' but the song that really captured my attention from the album was 'From The Woods!!'. The ending of that song was about the strongest ending to a song that I can remember.
I am sure the comparisons to some other artists are out there but I just can't drop any names to compare James Vincent McMorrow to, as I think his song writing talent and voice are truely unique. With this release JVM will surely have a very good 2011.
