JAMES MORRISON

"I've got demons trying to get to me. . . “ Als James Morrison im Jahr 2006 mit seinen ersten Songs bekannt wurde, hätte der britische Singer-Songwriter wohl nie damit gerechnet, dass sein mit Soul- und Pop-Elementen durchzogener Sound schon wenige Jahre später als Blaupause – und er selbst als Wegbereiter – für eine ganze Reihe von gleichgesinnten Musikern dienen würde. Heute, knapp 10 Jahre später, tummeln sich Namen wie Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, George Ezra und James Bay in den Charts, und sie alle verfolgen einen ganz ähnlichen Ansatz wie Morrison: Es sind Solomusiker mit grandioser Soul-Stimme.

In the Arena

In 1973 the movie PLANET OF THE APES aired on television for the first time. I was ten years old. Until that night I thought of movies as a tedious, vaguely sleazy adult pastime -- spy movies, cowboy movies, people kissing, etc. Then came PLANET OF THE APES. A strange, desert landscape. An astronaut on the run. Ideas clashing with beliefs. Evolution, religious heresy, fanaticism, cynicsm, youth revolt. This was no John Wayne, that dreary macho cowpoke mired in run of the mill bully-boy heroics. In 1973 the movie PLANET OF THE APES aired on television for the first time.
