Morgan James, a renowned vocalist, Broadway performer, and Juilliard School alumna, has just released the first track from her upcoming album, Nobody’s Fool. The song is a cover of the iconic artist Jeff Buckley’s “Everybody Here Wants You,” and James has been praised as a “phenomenal talent” by The New York Times. Nobody’s Fool is set to be released on March 31st.

James has now revealed the complete tracklist for Nobody’s Fool, a 90s-style R&B album, which includes collaborations with renowned artists such as Raphael Saadiq, Memphis saxophonist Lannie McMillan (Silk Sonic, Al Green), and producers/songwriters Sam Watters and Louis Biancaniello (Kelly Clarkson, Anastacia). Her husband and musical collaborator, Doug Wamble, also co-wrote, arranged, and produced the album.

James explained that her first studio album, Hunter, was rooted in R&B, and while her subsequent albums leaned more towards classic soul, she knew that she wanted to return to her R&B roots at some point. As a 90s kid, that style of music has a special place in her heart.

James has a reputation for paying homage to artists who have influenced her career, such as Joni Mitchell, D’Angelo, and The Beatles. She covered Buckley’s entire album Grace a few years ago, and while recording Nobody’s Fool in Memphis, James was inspired to pay tribute to Buckley once again with the album’s sole cover.

James will begin a tour in support of Nobody’s Fool on March 25th, starting in Memphis, where the album was the third she recorded at Memphis Magnetic Recording. The two-month trek runs until May 23rd in Baton Rouge, followed by two Symphonic Soul dates in Florida. A full tour itinerary is included below.
