Artist Of The Day: Van Morrison

posted by Shane German on 11/01/2019

Equal parts blue-eyed soul shouter and wild-eyed poet-sorcerer, Van Morrison is among popular music's true innovators, a restless seeker whose incantatory vocals and alchemical fusion of R&B, jazz, blues, and Celtic folk produced what is regarded as perhaps the most spiritually transcendent body of work in the rock & roll canon; Having penned iconic songs such as "Gloria," "Brown-Eyed Girl," and "Moondance,"

Morrison has, from the very beginning -- as frontman for Irish blues rockers Them during the early 1960s to a solo career that has lasted more than 50 years -- been subject only to the whims of his own muse.

Morrison was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and is also the recipient of two Grammy Awards and has been Knighted to the Order of the British Empire.

Van The Man's latest album (and 40th!)  “Three Chords And The Truth” was recently added to the WYCE Music Library.
