“Recovering addict Sam Morrow releases his debut album and provides an honest account of his descent into alcoholism and his journey back to sobriety.” That’s what you may think the accompanying press release said about this album from Morrow, and if it did, then that’s because it’s true.

Funky ‘14’ outlines the first time Morrow tasted whiskey and liked it so much, he descended into a state of alcoholic despair. He could have remained there, but by his own admission, music was always part of his life, including the dark times, and as he soon realised, it would prove to be his redemption.

The title of this album could be referring to the one day at a time process recovering alcoholics subscribe to, enabling them on their journey to recovery. Addiction is nothing new within the music world and many artists have paid the price for whatever their poison happened to be, but Morrow has managed to deal with his demons and this album is his catharsis.

But “Ephemeral” also means no longer of the moment, transitory and existing only briefly which I suppose many things are; a thought, happiness, a kiss, a look, a drink, but not a set of songs – once recorded and out there, they’re around forever.

Melancholic brooding opener ‘War’ endeavours to set the scene of what this album apparently seems to be all about – all dark colours, drabness and lifelessness. ‘Old Soul’ does little to change the mood along with ‘Sure Thing’. Three songs in and there’s very little cheer available so far. In fact Morrow tells his audiences to come along to his shows as “It will be the most fun being sad that you’ve ever had.”

But through the morose material, Morrow’s soulful voice is what makes this album. It cuts through the instrumentation and constantly commands your attention. Ably supported by the rhythm section of drummer Anthony Biuso and Ian Walker on bass they give the songs plenty of bottom end oomph making the speakers rattle and hum.
