‘Expected’ is the new single from excellent singer-songwriter James Patrick Morgan, and on first listen it’s clear to see why it was chosen as the lead track on upcoming EP ‘Art+Work=Love’. Within four bars of its opening, the beat kicks in and the soul-funk genre is established. If, at this stage, your head isn’t nodding along as a listener then there may be no hope for you

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Morgan is a true talent, reminiscent of modern greats such as Paulo Nutini and James Morrison. The fact that he can be mentioned in this company not only gives you an idea of his quality, but his style – a soul based approach to pop that will never get old.
