James Morrison goes for Fishman
Acoustic star uses Rare Earth pickups on recent US tour
Singer-songwriter James Morrison is using Fishman’s Rare Earth humbucking active soundhole pickup on his acoustic guitars.
With his latest single, Broken Strings already a fixture in both the national and international music and download charts, the young musician (pictured left with Chis DeMaria, Fishman’s director of marketing and artist relations) is also currently enjoying a welcome reception to his songs as he tours over in the USA.
After years spent playing cover songs in the earlier part of the decade, Morrison decided to push ahead with his own material, and in 2006 his distinctive vocal style found success with his self-penned debut single, You Give Me Something. This was followed by a huge response to the ensuing debut album, ironically titled Undiscovered, which by the end of that year had sold over a million copies, with three Brit Award nominations.
Continued single success with songs like The Pieces Don’t Fit Anymore and You Make It Real led up to the release of his second album, Songs For You, Truths For Me, with Morrison also fitting in some very popluar high-profile concert and festival appearances alongside his own tours in the interim period, making him a household name as a performing artist.
Re-voiced and fine-tuned for smooth treble response, the Fishman Rare Earth unit features cutting-edge neodymium magnets for a warmer and more natural full acoustic tone, with excellent string-to-string balance characteristics.
