At 22, raw and soulful English singer-songwriter James Morrison has already experienced remarkable success. His first single, last summer's "You Give Me Something," made him an overnight success in the U.K., and he's likely to attract widespread attention here as the year wears on.

After being discovered as a busker in England, Morrison toured with Corinne Bailey Rae on her U.K. tour, and the quick success of his single snowballed into sales of his chart-topping debut album, Undiscovered. The disc became one of Britain's best-selling albums in 2006, selling more than a million copies worldwide, and it hits stores in America this week.
