James Morrison – definitely influenced by Stevie Wonder

This is the first time I’ve conscientiously listened to James Morrison’s music.  He released a new album this month called ‘The Awakening’.  The longer I listened to the songs, the more Stevie Wonder came to mind.

I have Stevie Wonder’s hits in my collection of tunes and I think the way James enunciates his words and holds the notes out at times is what reminds me of Mr. Wonder, but it could be something else.

Scratchy voice like Bryan Adams, inflections of Stevie Wonder and as far into the “soul” genre as I’ll go, I’m adding this album to my soft listening list.  He’ll be background music for reading and studying.
