Kevin Morby – one of the greatest American singer-songwriters of the decade – is here to share his rich, generous folk, carried by his personal penmanship and an eye (or ear!) for narration that never misses.
Album after album, tour after tour, Kevin Morby proves his mettle as one of the most robust American songwriters of our time in a highly competitive genre, a register of folk intertwined with all the boldness of Bob Dylan. His seventh album, This Is A Photograph, released in 2022, is just further exhilarating evidence of this. The album was named after Kevin Morby unearthed a photograph of his father, young and full of life, the very evening that he was in a touchy situation following a collapse. Morby wrote this album from Memphis, surrounded by the essence of Elvis Presley, Jeff Buckley and Jay Reatard. His songs bear the marks of this reflection on the passage of time and are tinged with the city’s musical heritage, particularly soul. Keyboards, strings, brass and vocals confer a striking depth to his work in this new exciting chapter of a discography which has seen folk take on a rainbow of colours.
