James Vincent McMorrow is an Irish singer and songwriter. McMorrow’s debut album, Early in the Morning, was released in Ireland in February 2010, and in the United States and Europe in 2011, to widespread acclaim. In January 2012, McMorrow received an European Border Breakers Award in recognition of Early In The Morning’s success beyond Ireland and in 2014, he released his second album, Post Tropical, which included the song “Glacier”, used in the 2014 Spanish Christmas Lottery advertising campaign. In 2015, he composed a film score for the short, “Martha”, directed by Sam Benenati. The film was part of the series Campaign4Change “Mix-Up Tradition” launched by Ray Ban with the idea of sponsoring emerging directors and composers collaborate as a creative team. In 2016, his cover of the Chris Isaak song “Wicked Game” was used in the first official full-length trailer for the sixth season of the HBO hit series Game of Thrones. In mid-2016, he was featured on the promotional single “I’m in Love” from Kygo’s debut album, Cloud Nine.


“Rising Water” is the first single and track from his forthcoming (to be released on September) album “We Move”, which is described as his most expansive, generous and ambitious record to date.
