Kristen Lee Morris has built a career on writing, singing and playing guitar in a raw and soulful fashion. It is blues music at its core but with a freedom and range that also draws on country and folk styles. From the blues masters to Chris Whitley, Neil Young to Steve Earle – you can hear it all in Morris’ special blend. In 2014 Morris released his well-received, Kasey Chambers-produced debut album Ruins. Morris shared stages with Chambers, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Charlie Parr, and Hayes Carll before he and partner Sarah Humphreys brought their Eagle & The Wolf collaboration to life with a rich and soulful Americana album of the same name. 2018 was the year of Hillbilly Blues, Morris’ second solo album and one that eloquently encapsulates the spirit and verve of the musician and songwriter; his raw swagger and charm in full flight. In recognition of Kristen Lee Morris’ songwriting, Henry Wagons chose the single ‘Cowboy’ as his local song of the year on Double J’s Tower Of Song.
