Full name: James Morrison Catchpole
Latest album: Songs For You, Truths For Me
The loveable James Morrison has won a legion of fans with his raw bluesy music. We first saw him in a small London club in 2006; it was just him and his guitar, but the short set was simply mesmemrising. James has an inimitable voice with a wide vocal range. It soars and swoops over stings in tracks such as Wonderful World, but gently caresses simple piano chords on tracks such as 'You Make It Real'.
He reckons he developed his distinctive voice when he was just a mere baby. Apparently he developed a severe bout of whooping cough when he was a toddler and he believes that it was this illness that shaped his voice!
