Su estilo se puede comparar a los trabajos de Tracy Chapman, Annie D’Franco, Antonio Caban Vale, Silvio Rodriguez y Nick Drake.

While fans point to the British influences in the songwriting of London born Daniel Morrow, their sound pulls influences from a diverse array of artists; a quirky guitar style fusing elements of Pavement, Jeff Beck and Lightnin Hopkins provide a lightness alongside the earnest but often playful lyrics and melodies reminiscent of Elliot Smith and Morrissey. It is these catchy tunes and complex layers that are attracting a growing fan-base on the East Coast of the USA. The Morrow are playing regular shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan and are gaining airplay in Boston and Rhode Island thanks to their regular visits to the north. With an EP release in November 2013 and a management company now behind them, you can expect to hear a lot more from The Morrow in the coming months, wherever you are!

He is currently working on a third, while performing live with his RETIRED CON ARTIST troupe. Slyly, his (at times dangerously addictive) music veers from the delicate to the explosive, and his lyrics from the fragile to the acerbic. But through it all - the albums, the texts, the clips - runs a single thread that tells the story of one, quirky, magically real world. Adaam James is a grad-student of History and Journalism and often writes for the Jerusalem Post and PoSham magazine. He's currently web-editor for Haaretz.com. Not an easy-going person at the best of times, he's notably zealous about coffee and irony.
