Over the last five years, Americana singer-songwriter Sarah Morris has earned a reputation for engaging performances, with a voice both clear and lush. Sarah hails from Minneapolis, Minnesota, where from a young age, she immersed herself in her parent’s eclectic record collection before finally falling in love with the storytelling and songcraft in country music. Spending a few years in Music City instilled a traditional songwriting sensibility that has earned her latest album, Ordinary Things, international airplay, critical acclaim, and has propelled her into the national spotlight. The marriage between Morris’ captivating vocals, sharply crafted lyrics and her talented band, the Sometimes Guys (Thomas Nordlund, Andrew Foreman, and Zachary Schmidt) creates a signature sound steeped in folk-rock and alt-country, sprinkled with a bit of pop.

“Rootsy singer Sarah Morris offers a Norah Jones-like approach to Americana/alt-country, smoothing overs its rough edges with a butter-velvety voice and an intimate songwriting style.”
