Date/TimeSaturday, August 12 at 8:00pm
The Dublin-born singer/songwriter rose to fame upon the release of his platinum-selling debut album Early In The Morning, reaching #1 in his home country of Ireland, silver status in the UK, and earning a Choice Music Prize and EBBA award nomination in the process. In addition, there was an appearance on “Later… With Jools Holland.”
Sophomore album Post Tropical secured his place as a globally recognized musician, garnering a second nomination for the Choice Music Prize, among other accolades. It also led to multiple sold out tours across the world, in the biggest venues of his career including two nights at The Sydney Opera House, London’s Barbican and Shepherd’s Bush Empire, four nights in Dublin’s National Concert Hall, and one particularly epic late night tour bus jam through the entire Hall and Oates back catalog. Apparently, his mom prefers his first record, his Dad prefers his second.
Also known for his visually captivating videos, “Cavalier” has over 2 million views on YouTube alongside the stunning videos for “Red Dust” and “Glacier,” which were constructed by Northern Irish director Aoife McArdle as a trilogy to be played together. While touring for Post Tropical, McMorrow appeared at Coachella, Electric Picnic, Edmonton Folk Festival, Gentleman of the Road (Mumford & Sons), Latitude, and Lowlands Festival, among others.
James Vincent McMorrow announced today he will bring his new album, True Care, on tour throughout the summer which will include a stop at Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara. Each headline show will include a set consisting of True Care in full and then a set spanning his career to date. The album will be available next week (May 26th) via Caroline Records/AllPoints Recordings.
