Online PR News – 08-December-2016 – Los Angeles, CA, December 08, 2016 – James Patrick Morgan, the Atlanta-based pop-rock and soul singer/songwriter, releases the first single from his upcoming EP today. This single, titled âExpected,â is the first song on the EP âArt + Work = Love,â which will be released in early 2017 through Cloverland Entertainment. âExpectedâ is currently available to stream via SoundCloud and will be available to purchase on iTunes and all major digital outlets at the time of the EP release.
Morgan says that âsongwriting comes easilyâ to him, and itâs evident that is true from the opening notes of âExpected.â The Sony Southern Talent Expo winnerâs wide ranging influences from blues to soul to pop and soft rock are all given time on the track â from the acoustic verses to the catchy horn lines and soulful vocal harmonies on the chorus. The song features an infectious, danceable groove that carries the listener through the story of two people sharing âone night, two nights, three nightsâ and eventually falling in love.
âArt + Work = Loveâ is a five-song collection that James Patrick Morgan describes as one that ârepresents [him] better than most past recordings,â because it captures much more of âwhat [he does] in a live setting.â The EP was recorded in several legendary studios across the United States such as Los Angelesâ East West Studios, where the Beach Boys recorded many of their hits, and the storied Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN. Morgan says the goal of the EP, and of his artistry, is to âshow people that itâs okay to be present and feel.â This is something he does with remarkable success on âArt + Work = Love,â recalling classic artists such as Sam Cooke and Dave Matthews, but doing so in a fresh and exciting way.
