James Morrison has recently released his singles ‘Demons’, ‘Stay Like This’ and a new album ‘Higher Than Here’ and with these comes a new UK and European tour. Made up of 23 dates, the tour will start of the 4th March in Glasgow and finish in Milan on Tuesday 26th April. The up-coming tour this spring will consist of Morrison performing a mixture of his classics hits such as ‘Broken Strings’, ‘Wonderful World’ and ‘Give Me Something’ as well as his new album tracks.
With his last live show being in 2011, James was welcomed back with open arms by the music industry and his fans when he played his first two shows back; one at Wilton’s Music Hall and the other at Tabernacle, both in London. The two both sold out in a matter of mere seconds.
Think back to 2006 and you’ll remember James first stepping onto the music scene with a guitar in hand and his soulful, soothing, gravelly voice. Becoming such a huge one-man success allowed others of his genre to step onto the scene and find their own fame nearly ten years on. Artists like Ed Sheeran, James Bay and George Ezra, for example, all have Morrison to thank for making a place in the music community for the now popular template of just one man, his acoustic guitar and a unique voice.
And despite having won a BRIT award in 2007 for ‘Best Male’ when he was only 21 years old, selling 4.5 million copies of his first trio of albums and selling out four world wide tours, James has still kept his self-deprecating and humble nature. The singer and song-writer will be coming to Southampton on 17th March and performing at the O2 Guildhall. New album ‘Higher Than Here’ is out now.
Support comes from the hotly tipped Kelvin Jones. The shows with James will give Kelvin the chance to spread his wings and step out on the big stages to promote his debut album Stop The Moment, which is released on March 25th through Epic Records & Four Music, who won a hotly contested race to secure his signature.
Stop The Moment includes both his debut track ‘Closer’ (which caused a huge online buzz last year) and his first single ‘Call You Home’, which is out now. The track is catching light online, with over 14 million Spotify plays and 2.1 million YouTube hits for the official video – which features a TV sent up into space – and was nominated for various ‘Video Of The Year’ awards.
