Morris was originally going to call his masterful new album “Trump Songs for Leonard Cohen” as a tribute to the venerated songwriter, but when Cohen’s estate wouldn’t allow it, he came up with the perfect alternative – Psychopaths & Sycophants, which Morris calls the “paradigm of fascism.” “I started writing these songs in 2016 as Trump’s campaign gained traction,” Morris says. “Having grown up in the Deep South, and having studied the rise of Hitler, Trump’s fascist and racist agenda was not lost on me. I knew immediately how dangerous he was, and began writing warning songs about him and his campaign. But then everything took on a more direct meaning a year later, when the Alt-Right attacked my adopted hometown."<br><br> Morris’s first three albums, Songs From Candyapolis, Love Wounds & Mars, and The Dirty Gospel, received great acclaim from press and fans alike. Love Wounds & Mars and The Dirty Gospel both were included on several “Best Albums” lists-- from the likes of No Depression, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and others.
