Win JAMES MORRISON CD & T-Shirt ... NOW!
Not only is England's James Morrison the owner of the most charismatic and rootsy soul voice to emerge in recent years, but his songs pack an emotional depth that lets you know they're coming from someplace - and someone - very real. He's got style and substance; honesty and passion, and a debut so strong that he won't be Undiscovered for long.
No less a legend than Atlantic Records producer and co-founder Jerry Wexler said Morrison has a voice “with its own thumbprint. Hear it once and you’ll forever recognize it.” (As a baby, he had a terrible whooping cough, which may have left him with scarred vocal chords).
That’s no small praise for a man who’s worked with soul greats Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin, who knows a great set of pipes when he hears them, and Morrison’s voice hits you instantly, a harsh, yet soothing plaint that recalls both Rod Stewart in his Gasoline Alley prime and Joe Cocker in the aptly titled “Under the Influence,” the romantic Stevie Wonder on “You Give Me Something,” the Bob Seger of “Night Moves” in “Undiscovered,” John Lennon in the violent, gnarled “(I Want You) She’s So Heavy” blues of “Call the Police,” and Charles himself on the confessional “If the Rain Must Fall.” Throw in a dash of Chris Martin’s shaggy good looks and James Blunt’s boyish sex appeal and you have the whole package.

Indeed, Morrison has more than been discovered in his native Britain and Europe; he’s a conquering hero. His album debuted at #1 on the U.K. charts, remaining there for several weeks, selling over 600,000 copies (and over 1 million worldwide) on the strength of a pair of Top 5 hits in the first single, “You Give Me Something” and “Wonderful World,” an ear-opening dark yin to the yang of Louis Armstrong’s original, in which Morrison reveals: “And I know that it’s a wonderful world/But I can’t feel it right now.”
Interscope Records will release James Morrison’s Undiscovered on March 13th, so in the meantime, Exclusive Magazine has these wonderful series of webisodes that you can all feast your eyes on:
