James Morrison is an award winning BRIT singer-songwriter and guitarist in Rugby, Warwickshire. His debut single "You Give Me Something” became a hit in Europe, Australia, and Japan, peaking in the top five in the UK and New Zealand in 2006. His debut album, Undiscovered which was released on 31st of July, 2006 was debuted at the top of the UK Albums Chart. He achieved worldwide success with debut single "You Give Me Something", which reached #2 in Holland and the #5 spot in the UK.
The album received generally positive reviews with the The Sun, claiming "There isn't a bad track on it". The album sold over 1 million copies around the world by the end of 2006, making James the best selling male solo artist of 2006 in the UK.
An equally positive review by The Times stated that "Undiscovered may prove to be the least apposite album title for years".
James Morrison released his second album, Songs for You, Truths for Me in 2008, which entered the top five in the UK as well as topping the Irish Albums Chart. Songs for You, Truths for Me featured the top ten singles "You Make It Real" and his critically acclaimed collaboration with Nelly Furtado titled "Broken Strings". That’s one of my favorite songs from him. He has performed with Jason Mraz, Nelly Furtado, and others in concerts and in songs.
