BRIT Awards and Broken Strings
Born in the West Midlands in 1984, singer and guitarist James Morrison was inspired to pursue a career in music by various classical soul men including Otis Redding, Al Green and Stevie Wonder. He first came to attention in 2006 when debut single "You Give Me Something" reached the Top 10 in both the UK and Australia, with parent album "Undiscovered" also topping the charts in his homeland and reaching the Top 40 in the United States. A Best British Male gong at the BRIT Awards followed before Morrison released 2008’s multi-platinum "Songs for You, Truths for Me", scoring a massive hit with Nelly Furtado duet "Broken Strings". Morrison continued his winning streak with 2011’s second UK Number One LP "The Awakening", while Olly Murs, Demi Lovato and Kelly Clarkson were just some of the major pop names to utilise his songwriting talents. Following 2015’s "Higher Than Here", Morrison took a break from the industry before returning triumphantly four years later with fifth studio effort "You’re Stronger Than You Know".

From street busking to sell-out headline shows
From his early days busking on the streets of his hometown to his sell-out shows in front of thousands of adoring fans, James Morrison has built his career on being the consummate live performer. Showcasing both his gifted musicianship and distinctive raspy tones, the troubadour’s set list is typically packed with the melodic, feel-good pop hits that made him such a favourite in the late ’00s. Fans can expect to hear the likes of "You Give Me Something", "Wonderful World", "You Make It Real" and "I Won’t Let You Go" alongside solo renditions of his duets with Nelly Furtado ("Broken Strings"), Jessie J ("Up") and Joss Stone ("My Love Goes On"). Morrison also likes to throw in the odd cover version too, with The Spencer Davis Group, Stevie Wonder and Van Morrison just some of the influences he’s paid tribute to over the years.
