The versatile singer/guitarist Van Morisson is back again with new CD, Pay the Devil. ‘The Belfast Cowboy’ presents a selection of his favorite country songs, southern blues classics of artists such as Hank Williams, and his own new songs. Experts describe the album as having a typical relaxed Nashville sound, while, if you please, Morisson has never set foot in Nashville. Morrison, once declared one of the five most important pop poets of the world by Time Magazine, can look back on a music career spanning four decades. The merits of this Irishman are great. From 1960 until now he has been touring practically continuously all over the world. Moreover he has made an enormous amount of studio albums. Morrison’s music consists of elements of both American blues and Irish folk, with lyrics about mystic subjects, Mother Earth and his homeland Ireland. His unforgettable hits are: Brown Eyed Girl, Domino, Spanish Rose, Have I Told You Lately and Gloria.
