The Basement in Sydney is getting ready to host an intimate acoustic evening with James Morrison and his fans on the 18th of April, this exclusive special event will feature favourite songs and songs from the new album The Awakening, which is available now through Universal.
2007 was the last time Morrison performed in Australia and since that time he has released two studio albums, toured the world and collaborated with artists including Jason Mraz, Nelly Furtado and Jessie J.
Recent events in Morrison’s personal life have lent an emotional depth to his songwriting that has impressed critics as well as fans. The Awakening has been declared Morrison’s ‘coming of age’ album after a tumultuous year in which the singer said goodbye to his father, and hello to his child. Experiences like these to draw on have certainly breathed new life into Morrison’s songwriting.
‘The talent, the substance, and the heart of this collection place it above a vast majority of the albums I’ve listened to recently. There is no gloss, nothing manufactured. This is soul, pure and simple. A fascinatingly resilient musician and inspiring album, not to be missed.’ – Relate Magazine
Fans were treated to trusty favourites like ‘You Give Me Something’ and ‘You Make It Real’ in shows across America and mainland Europe during Morrison’s extensive recent touring. These same shows saw fans introduced to new material from The Awakening, the songs included ‘I Won’t Let You Go’ and ‘Up’. Jessie J features in a unique collaboration on ‘Up’.
A host of new fans were collected across the world as they became as delighted with these intimate shows as the dedicated James Morrison fans that have been following his career.
James Morrison is an extremely talented musician, there is no denying that, but put him in front of an audience and the passion of his songwriting, and vocals, explodes with new life. This exclusive opportunity to be engaged by the live Morrison experience is one not to be missed, he will be performing songs from his new album The Awakening as well as old favourites and it’s one night only so get in quick before you miss out.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
