His music career started out in the drumming department. By the time he'd hit university age mellowed some and discovered more acoustic-oriented sounds. like Sufjan Stevens and Band of Horses. At 19 he took up the guitar, inspired by Donny Hathaway's "I Love You More Than You Will Ever Know." He began writing songs heavily influenced by the music of the 1970s singer/songwriter era.

McMorrow began playing shows in local pubs and was well received.  Deciding to record Early in the Morning, which he'll perform on Thursday, he moved into a small house in Ireland, with his guitar, a keyboard, a microphone, a computer, and several other instruments. He wrote and cut what would eventually become his debut self-titled EP, and his first album, Early in the Morning.
