Meeting Bill and Kasey Chambers at a local songwriter night on the NSW Central Coast led to the Chambers’ produced RUINS (Nov. 2014), featuring a kick ass country band playing Morris’s hard, swamp blues. RUINS struck a chord with country and blues lovers across the country. Here was a guy that could write a break up song and also shake the walls with his visceral, sonic power.
Morris musical chemistry with partner, Sarah Humphreys, led to their critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut record as a band, EAGLE & THE WOLF (Feb. 2016). Their lead single MAMA, SON & THE HOLY GHOST received national airplay and opened the door to national tour supports with Kasey Chambers, Charlie Parr, and Hayes Carll.
“Open hearted Americana from smitten Australian duo…Humphreys’ voice is mellifluous throughout…the pair’s sincerity and chemistry makes their first record together beguiling indeed.”
Morris himself has also shared stages with the likes of Corey Harris (USA), The Blind Boys of Alabama (USA), Dave Alvin (USA), Jeff Lang, 19-Twenty and many more.
Morris new record, HILLBILLY BLUES, produced by Bill Chambers, will be out in October 2018.
