Morison je karijeru započeo kao tinejdžer 1950-ih svirajući u lokalnim bendovima obrade tadašnjih hitova. Slavu mu je sredinom 1960-ih donelo članstvo u R&B bendu "Them", za koji je napisao pesmu "Gloria", koja se smatra jednim od garaž rok klasika. Ubrzo je taj bend napustio i započeo uspešnu solo-karijeru, a već 1967. imao veliki hit s pesmom "Brown Eyed Girl". Nakon toga su sledili albumi "Astral Weeks" i "Moondance", albumi na kojima je eksperimentisao sa mešanjem različitih žanrova i koji se često smatraju jednim od najboljih u istoriji zabavne muzike. Morison, koji je tokom karijere dobio niz prestižnih nagrada, smatra se jednim od najvećih severnoirskih muzičara.

Van Morison ima šest nagrada "Gremi" 1993. bio je uvršten u "Rok en rol dvoranu slave" (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) a 2003. je uvršten u "Dvoranu slave tekstopisaca" (Songwriters Hall of Fame).[1][2][3][4][5][6].
