Get ready for the stirring appearance of Britain's favorite idol James Morrison at Dubai Media City Outdoor Amphitheater on the closing night of the Skywards Dubai International Jazz Festival, which is to kick off on Wednesday February 10th, 2010.

Best described as the British Stevie Wonder, Morrison's music incorporates a variety of elements from the soul music maters such as Ray Charles, Bob Seger, Rod Stewart, and Joe Cocker.

The chart topper and the preferred of today's Europe music scene accessed a global sales record of more than 2 million for his “Undiscovered", which became one of the top 10 best selling albums of the year in the UK classifying James as one of the leading pop singers and securing him the Brit Award for Best British Male Solo Artist that he received in February 2007.

2008 highlighted Morrisson's collaboration with Jason Mraz on the track “Details in the Fabric" releasing his second album Songs for You, Truths for Me was in the UK hitting #3 on the charts and certified platinum for sales. Broken Strings, an added single from Songs for You, Truths for Me was released: a duet with Nelly Furtado praised immense popularity and applaud and became James's biggest hit worldwide.

Morrisson had performed for thousands of fans and at some of the largest stadiums and arenas around the globe, and now adding Dubai to the list!

“We are really excited about adding such a star to our artists portfolio, James will surely attract a huge fan base, which he built in this region due to his unique style and voice" declared Anthony Younes, founder and organizer of the festival.

Although James Morrison hit the charts at the tender age of 22, his expressive voice sounds like it has been around for much much longer.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
