If there were any doubts about the future of folk music, listening to Kevin Morby will make them disappear. Following the legacy of Dylan and many other North American singers, Morby belongs to a generation of folk singers that include Angel Olsen and Kurt Vile, amongst others. Before the start of his solo career he had a stint as part of a band, first with Woods and later with Cassie Ramone as one half of The Babies. This period would be essential for his artistic growth. When he left Brooklyn for Los Angeles he recorded a collection of songs dedicated to NYC, which began to shape his solo career. In 2013 he released his debut album as Kevin Morby, entitled Harlem River. His second, Still Life, would be released the following year. Morby gathered some friends and presented a riskier album, going beyond the intimate relationship between a man and his guitar. By then both public and critics had fallen at his feet thanks to his classic, beautiful songs. He thereafter earned acclamation with albums Singing Saw and City Music and he was repeatedly listed among the best by music magazines Mojo, Uncut and Pitchfork. His fans can rely on his work ethic and know that they’ll never have to wait too long before they have new songs to listen to. 2019 saw the release of Oh My God. In this album Morby shows his more mature self and explores his spiritual concerns in a constant dialogue with references such as Lou Reed and Bob Dylan in his gospel phase. Kevin Morby is today one of the best singer-songwriters in the world and he comes to the EDP stage at Super Bock Super Rock’s next edition in Portugal on July 16th.
