Kristen Lee Morris has forged a reputation as one of Australia’s most unique and captivating country & blues musicians. His songs cut to the heart and on stage with his rusty guitar he tears the house down.
Meeting Bill and Kasey Chambers at a songwriter night on the NSW Central Coast led to the Chambers’ produced RUINS (Nov. 2014). Featuring a kick ass country band (Bill Chambers, Jeff McCormack, Steve Fearnley) playing Morris’s hard, swamp blues RUINS struck a chord with country and blues lovers alike. Here was a guy that could write a break up song and, at the same time, shake the walls.
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.
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.
