The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.
I wanted to mention that I don't always listen to music "out of the box", so to speak. I however like to try new foods, try give different art forms a chance, and with music I like hear different things. Some weeks are easy to find a new singer/music group, while other weeks are harder. In reality I listen to old bands/singers just as much as new ones. Old bands/singers are like having an old favorite sweater. I just love it too much to get rid of it. It's a classic that still fits.
This week I wanted to try and find an Irish band/singer I've never heard of before. The trouble was, is that I didn't know of any newer groups/singers. I had Daddy write some names down, I listened to them, but to tell the truth they didn't sit with me. We all have different tastes. He's into much harder stuff than I am.
I did find an Irish singer that was in the side bar of YouTube. His name is: James Vincent McMorrow. His voice reminds me of Cat Stevens. Maybe I'll feature Cat Stevens next week. I heard he's writing and singing again; under a different name.
Who is James Vincent McMorrow? He lives in an isolated house by the sea, his last album is a completely self recorded and played affair, filled with vivid stories, all the while retaining the environment and sentiment in which they were formed.
