James Morrison

& special guest: Matt Simons

The life of British singer and songwriter James Morrison almost lasted only a few weeks. As a baby he suffered from a severe whooping cough disease and the doctors had already written him off. Today, James says that this disease has shaped his voice. Morrison grew up in Rugby in Warwickshire, England – because of his difficult childhood and his exhausting teenage years, it was love which brought him to music. His story is proof that what doesn’t kill you can actually make you stronger.

At the age of 13 he took for the first time a guitar in his hands and covered all sorts of songs. Among his great idols are Otis Redding, Van Morrison and especially Stevie Wonder. James Morrison makes street music and plays in every pub that gives him the opportunity to perform. At some point he finally begins to write pieces himself, which reveals his huge talent.

His first single “You Give Me Something” immediately brought his international breakthrough, his solo debut promptly sold over a million copies. Morrison’s distinctive voice has been known to everyone since the international super hit “Broken Strings” together with Nelly Furtado.

Dear Tollwood-Visitors, please take note of the safety advice for the “Musik-Arena”. There will be body checks at the entrance and your bags will be searched. We generally advise our concert guests to refrain from bringing medium-sized and / or large backpacks and large handbags in order to accelerate access to the “Musik-Arena”.
