JEAN MORRISON TO LAUNCH DEBUT SOLO CD (article first published : 2008-08-9)

Jean Morrison to appear with new band at Dockyard for CD launch.

The evening promises to be a success as Jean Morrison and band will be accompanied by some of South Africa’s top musicians, namely Esjay from Stealing Love Jones, legendary guitarist Nibs van der Spuy and orchestral violinist Ant Cawthorn Blazeby (former Landscape Prayers). Jean describes his music as “neo acoustic romanticized ballroom rock” His distinctive blend of these usually separated styles seem to result in a masterpiece created with every song.

Jeans debut CD FAWE (*F*ire, *A*ir, *W*ater, *E*arth) was recorded and produced by Dave Birch at Tropical Sweat Studios. Dave has also produced the albums of The Parlotones, The Finkelsteins, Evolver, Perez and Sitter to name a few. Over the past two years Jean’s voice has been heard at various popular venues around Durban often alongside names such as Farryl Purkiss, Esjay and Squeel. Jean recently spent some time in January performing in a club in the Italian Alps where he was welcomed with a standing ovation.

When asked why the CD was titled FAWE, Jean responded: “I decided to use the four elements - fire, air, water and earth as a play on words, so when pronounced it sounds like the number four. This number is significant to me as I was born on the 22/04/1984. My music also possesses the main characteristic behind each element, as water is pure, fire has passion, air has an energy and earth has solidity. The songs I write are based upon these four characteristics”.

Now and Then is the first single off the CD and is set to hit most radio and television stations nationwide as this will be promoted with a music video. Jean’s CD will also be available at Rythmic Beat and Look and Listen stores nationwide later this month.
