James Vincent McMorrow is an Irish singer and songwriter. His parents come from Malahide, County Dublin. 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. He made his UK television debut on BBC Two's Later... with Jools Holland on 27 May 2011. He played with Lisa Hannigan on 8 December 2011 at Dublin's Button Factory for the Choice Music Prize event.
In 2015, he composed a film score for the short "Martha" by Director Sam Benenati. The film was part of the series Campaign4Change "Mix-Up Tradition" launched by Ray Ban with the idea of sponsoring emerging new Directors and Composers letting them work together as a creative team. In the short movie we see an old woman (Jenny O'Hara, the well known actress of "Mystic River" and "Matchstick Men", starring grandmother Martha) and her grandson Scott (Matty Cardarople, "Jurassic World" and "Dumb and Dumber To") meet for the first time in their life for real, in an unconventional, spontaneous, emotional way. Martha can express her sorrow and loneliness after the death of her husband (Scott's grandfather) and the young man can talk about his first sentimental experiences. Producers Filippo Nesci and Nima Shoghi worked together to make it happen on a tremendously tight schedule. The results are visible on Vimeo, where all credits are listed too.
