HUFFINGTON POST: MORLEY'S MUSIC IS "STITCHED TOGETHER BEAUTIFULLY, UNDIVIDED AND COMPLETE"
Fresh from a November 2 sold out show at Joe's Pub, New York musician and teacher Morley will perform songs from her forthcoming album 'Undivided' January 6 at DROM. Born in Jamaica, Queens, Morley is also a teacher of young people from international conflict zones.
Most recently, Morley presented at TEDxWomen, on a day-long international conference bill with Barbara Walters, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, and others. Watch her performance here.
Rhythms and production on the uplifting new album 'Undivided' are influenced by Morley's experience as a teacher and time in the Sahara desert. The stunning new album features guests Raúl Midón, Joan Wasser (Joan As Police Woman), Dave Eggar, and David Amram (Thelonious Monk, Allen Ginsberg).
The Huffington Post recently posted Morley "Be The One" video, saying, " Morley's sound has always been large. Even with just a simple guitar and her elegant voice, the Queens, NY native has consistently conjured music that can barely be contained in the room that attempts to house it. The reasons are numerous: smart production, intelligent songwriting and -- especially in Morley's case -- poetry disguised as lyrics that immediately resonates with heartfelt conviction… In Morley, all factors are stitched together beautifully, undivided and complete":
The New York Times said, "Morley embodies modern-day New York femininity in all its multicultural finesse."
