Morley – the world-traveling singer-songwriter and peace activist – will celebrate the release of her new album 'Undivided' with a show at Room 5. Morley is also confirmed to perform at the Tadasana International Festival of Yoga and Music in Santa Monica April 20-22.
'Undivided' came about following a year of travel for Morley, who brought back rhythms and melodies from the Sahara and Morocco. Her video for "Wild Bird" debuted on National Geographic Music, which called it "a dazzling, sun-drenched voyage to the Sahara desert.
She also performed as part of TEDxWomen in December, alongside Dr. Mehmet Oz, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem. View her performance here.
The Huffington Post wrote, "She has the uncanny ability to make you feel good about yourself and life without you realizing that you're feeling good about these things. It's just the instantaneous contact that happens inside your headphones... The keyword here is community, something Morley is expert at creating, be it through her hospice work or teaching yoga in prisons. Yet none of her music is sacrificed for a message... In Morley, all factors are stitched together beautifully, undivided and complete." Read the complete review and view the "Be The One" video here.
Morley's concerts are exercises in unity, bringing audiences together. Born in Jamaica, Queens, the singer-songwriter teaches conflict resolution to teens from conflict regions such as Northern Ireland and Israel and Palestine, working with the organization Face To Face | Faith To Faith on three-week workshops. She is also a yoga instructor.
