Sarah Morris is a Minnesota-born singer-song writer with a flair for songs about the highs, and lows of love. Her writing is evocative – a kind of melodic poetry that can make you sing along even when you don’t know the song. Sarah balanced her classical training with a 4 year immersion in Nashville’s singer-songwriter community, allowing her voice to transition easily from genre to genre, creating a sultry sound that’s all her own. She tackles a range from classic country to jazz standards, sprinkled with her own take on pop. A night with Sarah can bring you through a mournful Don Williams ballad to a fresh take on Whitney Houston. All the while, her originals carry the show.
With her soothing, yet captivating voice, Sarah Morris has established herself as one of the best kept secret singer/songwriting talents in the Twin Cities. With the release of “Ain’t Nothing Wrong,” Morris doesn’t plan on being so secret any longer.
Morris’ love for music originated from her parents record collection, with David Bowie, The Beatles, and Frank Sinatra songs helping to shape her musical DNA. After graduating High School, she began to lay the groundwork for her musical career at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music, as well as a move thereafter to Nashville, TN. Her time in Nashville helped instill a traditional songwriting sensibility that shines through in her music. In recent years, Morris has settled into life as a wife and mother, both of which have given a unique voice to her craft.
After releasing two albums in 2011 alone (Grateful Moon, Lonely or Free), Morris has been building a solid reputation with her honest and authentic songwriting and powerful performances. As a result, she has become a regular performer at prestigious clubs such as The Dakota, Aster Café, and Hell’s Kitchen in Minneapolis.
