James Vincent McMorrow is a multi-instrumental Folk singer hailing from Ireland.  His tour now includes a full band and this adds to the dynamic performance for which he is capable.  While not yet widely known in the US, I believe in time he will be having drawn comparisons from critics to Bon Iver, Ray LaMontagne, Sufjan Stevens and others.  Fully capable of standing on it’s own, look for McMorrow to carve his own niche of music;  currently defined, in part, in my mind by long and descriptive song titles with lyrics and range to match.  Enjoy some of James Vincent McMorrow’s performance at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia on September 8th 2011 including an encore performance consisting of McMorrow, solo on the keys, playing the Steve Winwood cover:  Higher Love.
