2014 was an incredible year, I’m so grateful to anyone who came to a show, bought/listened to “Post Tropical”, stopped me on the street to say hello and take a photo, or generally just made my life better.
We had some great people come down to my last show of the year, at the Theater at the Ace Hotel, Los Angeles. They recorded the entire show, it came out great, free to download for everyone who wants it. I’m incredibly proud of this show that we took all over the world for the last 12 months, and I want as many people to hear it as possible.

On a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border, ‘Post Tropical’ was born – a collection of sounds and ideas brought to life in rooms where the low frequencies of passing freight trains vibrated in the studio, briefly disturbing the birds in the rafters. And like most new ideas, ‘Post Tropical’ is hard to describe. It requires attention and engagement. It seduces you towards hidden depths.

McMorrow’s acclaimed debut album, ‘Early in the Morning’, reached number 1, went platinum and picked up a Choice Music Prize nomination upon its release in 2010. Along the way, there were shows everywhere from the Royal Festival Hall to Later…with Jools Holland, and a breakout hit in the charity cover of Steve Winwood’s ‘Higher Love’. McMorrow’s first record was the formative sounds of a songwriter who suddenly found people giving a damn. “I’m so proud of that album, but I never longed to be a guy with a guitar. You play these songs live as best you can, and suddenly you’re a Folk musician. But the texture of this record is completely different. This is the kind of stuff I actually listen to.”
