Giant Step is excited to introduce you to Vancouver-based artist David Morin. This DJ promo includes his debut album, Every Colour, out September 4th on Bombay Records. Morin’s unique, feel-good fusion of soul, hip-hop and jazz has earned early acclaim from industry heavyweights like Russell Simmons’ All Def Digital. His riffs bring to mind the licks of blues and funk masters. Playful hints of disco and pop add retro flavor to a contemporary aesthetic that’s as accessible as it is seductive. And his voice… melodic; smooth as honey; reminiscent in sound and vibe to the likes of John Legend and D’Angelo. Yet, his lyrics address protest: politics, justice, and inspiring social change.


The humble soul singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist busks regularly on street corners in his hometown and beyond. The guitar and loop-pedal virtuoso makes a solo performance sound like an entire band with beatboxing and vocal harmonies. Self-taught and passionately committed, Morin’s blessed with the ability to turn strangers into fans. As he travels the world, from the Santa Monica Promenade to SXSW in Austin to Barcelona & London, he pulls in a crowd wowed by his skills. Just watch his Music For The People video series and see for yourself.

Growing up in the rough area of Surrey, Vancouver, Morin found escape in his guitar and the hip-hop youth group he joined. He spent his high school years skipping class to sneak into the music room and take advantage of the KORG keyboard, which was a revelation to him, encouraging an interest in drums, synth, and keyboard sounds that he has continued to develop ever since. His lyrics tell of a life lived with highs and lows within his career and hometown. He sings of real issues we all deal with, be it on a personal or political level.

    Definite skills on display. I wish THIS was how pop music sounded now–no auto-tune, actual songs with grooves. Nice to hear a real drummer on some of this stuff, too. :)

    Some beautiful layering going on within these selections. “Life Goes On” has so much more going on within it than most pop music these days. David’s got an incredible voice. Top notch production as well.
