Van Morrison

1945 -

Origin: Northern Ireland

Genres: Blues, Folk/Country, Rock

Prolific singer and songwriter Van Morrison has produced one of the last half-century's most striking and diverse bodies of work, which continues to leave critics flipping through their music dictionaries for appropriate descriptions. In six short years, from 1968 to 1974, he enraptured audiences with a string of recordings that married autobiographical lyrics with lush compositions, elevating album tracks to epic song cycles. Over the next four decades, the artist's piercing musical vision has drifted across exotic soundscapes, touching on everything from traditional Celtic to gritty R&B to melancholic country.
