Anyone who read my "Best Songs of 2010" article may remember McMorrow's name falling into the 12 spot with "We Don't Eat." Now, nearly a year after its release in the U.K., "Early in the Morning" has finally earned a release in the U.S.

Recorded on his own while living in a cottage on the coast, "Early in the Morning" quickly sets the mood with "If I Had a Boat." Like "We Don't Eat," "If I Had a Boat" starts off quietly, but gradually builds in both vocal strength and instrumentation as the track progresses. Already a pro with them, these crescendos may very well become a trademark of McMorrow further along in his career. Additionally, shades of Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Band of Horses, and Iron & Wine all fill in McMorrow's mixes with a unique beauty that is very much his own despite the influences.

As the album treks forward, McMorrow proves he isn't a one trick pony with tracks like "Sparrow & the Wolf" which adds hints of country and maintains an upbeat tempo throughout. Although his more emotionally captivating tracks are the clear focus, the occasional upbeat flare adds a pleasant contrast to the album.

"We Don't Eat" is an unbelievably beautiful track and is worth the price of the album by itself, but McMorrow's equally sung and whispered lyrics intertwined with a lush musical framework makes for an enjoyable album from beginning to end; creating a very promising debut for the young Irish artist.

Similar Artists: Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver
Track Suggestion: "We Don't Eat"

I had the good fortune to "discover" this wonderful artist at a folk concert outside Dublin earlier this year. His haunting and powerful performance blew me and the audience away. But the riveting live performance was only the appetizer for the main course: McMorrow's magnificant album "Early In The Morning." Think early Neil Young, only better. McMorrow's tenor is haunting and the songs are power and beauty combined. The haunting and stirring "Walk in the Woods," for example, has to be heard to be believed.

This is a beautiful, powerful album by a great artist.

James Vincent McMorrow is awesome. He can create a pretty great debut album that not only has commercial, pop sensibilities but that also weaves in folk elements of acoustic guitar and banjo with some beautiful, piercing vocals reminiscent of Bon Iver. Some notable tracks are "We Don't Eat" and "The Sparrow and the Wolf," that while fairly pop-ey are also upbeat and hopeful. And while comparisons will be drawn between him and Fleet Foxes, Mumford & Sons and again, Bon Iver, have any of them taken 80s Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" and even Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" and made them into remarkable pieces that are deconstructed enough to make them almost sad and haunting? And while neither of these covers can be found on the album, I think they hint at what is to come for this very talented Irishman. I am looking forward to what is to come.

"Early in the Morning" is a beautiful combination of raw emotion, melancholy notes, and poignant lyrics. Perfect for a cup of coffee, rainy day or road trip. Buy it.

Listening to the Irish band Villagers supporting the wonderful Elbow in their huge hometown Manchester concert the other evening I was reminded of the fine talent that continues to stream out of Ireland and in particular the ability of artists from the Emerald Isle to produce debut albums of such assuredness and maturity that they really must make others green with envy. If you have yet to hear "The year of the Jackal" you should beat a path on to Amazon post haste where you will also find "Early in the morning" from the new Dublin troubadour James Vincent McMorrow awaiting to press your aural delight buttons. A slight pause however at this point since before going into detail there is a need to address the Bon Iver issue. This is a recent phenomenon which sees mostly male artists employing a propensity to beat a retreat into some desolate rural hinterland in a hastily constructed log cabin and pour out deep melancholy in their wretchedness. McMorrow has partially done this by recording this album near the sea in a cottage somewhere off the Irish coast, that said the smell of the seaweed and the stiff Irish breeze has combined to produce songs of very sombre delight but also an underpinning soulfulness on a number of tracks which keeps the wrist slitting elements down to bare minimum. In addition to prove that he has a real sense of humour McMorrow has recently produced a truly unique cover of that highly irritating pop imp Willow Smith's ode to luxurious locks, "Whip My Hair" which can be found all over the music blogs and is undeniably great.

"Early in the morning" has been released in the UK for well over a year but on the basis of "if at first you dont succeed" McMorrows label is giving it another shot which is commendable since this music deserves to be noticed.

I bought this as a gift for someone after originally downloading the album as an MP3 ( I heard one of the songs featured on Covert Affairs) and falling in love with the lyrics, music, and JVM's voice. Apparently JVM recorded this (and wrote a number of the songs) while holed up in a small house on the wild coast of Western Ireland. I'm now convinced that everyone thinking of making an album like this should go do the same. I love almost all of the songs, but especially "If I Had a Boat" (which was my ringtone for almost two years) and "We Don't Eat." Do yourself a favor and go find some of his live versions of those songs, as well as his live cover of Steve Winwood's "Higher Love." If I could pick one word to describe this CD, it would be "haunting." And if you're Irish, of Irish descent, or have spent any amount of time in Ireland, you'll hear those generations of Irish musical influences and lyrical brilliance in these songs. Buy it.
