James Morrison - Undiscovered Review

by Sherrill Fulghum

.
The latest musical import from Britain comes in the form of a 22 year old singing sensation by the name of James Morrison. Morrison's debut album is appropriately titled Undiscovered. As he states in the song he isn't lost just undiscovered.

Morrison is the middle child of three raised by a single mom. His album is filled with songs emotionally penned from his life. It is an autobiographical work in the truest sense of the word.

The opening track of the album is "Under the Influence" which is what Morrison does with his music. He has aptly placed the order of the songs. The second track and first single "Your Give Me Something" is also aptly titled. Morrison also gives his audience something an unmistakable voice, songs that rattle around in your head for days, and an album that keeps begging to be played again and again.

Morisson's unmistakable voice is the result of a bout with whooping cough as a child which scarred his vocal chords.

As his album title proclaims Morrison may have come onto the musical scene Undiscovered but that description is no longer true. The album sold 1.6 million records and debuted in the number one spot on the UK charts the week after it was released and Morrison took home the Brit Award British Grammy for est British Solo Male Artist for this year.

"I can't sing a song I don't believe in," says Morrison. That emotion comes through in his music. And Morrison believes so much in his music an outlet to express his frustration that Morrison turned down an offer in Hollywood to star opposite funnyman and actor Robin Williams. Hollywood's loss is the music world's gain. Morrison and his music will not remain Undiscovered; he has indeed found his place among the realm of pop/rock's young stars; a place he will not relinquish any time soon.
