Reflective of her diverse influences as a poet, dancer choreographer,
singer, Morley’s voice and music are a distinctive hybrid
of a range of artists from Roberta Flack to Sade to Annie Lenox
to Joni Mitchell, with a sound that is all her own.
Morley was signed to the Sony’s Work imprint and released
her debut CD, “Sun Machine”. Several songs from that
album (including “Just Like You”, also on the new CD)
were placed on TV shows, including the WB’s Dawson’s
Creek & Felicity (episodes & soundtrack CD), and on the
soap operas Days of Our Lives, As the World Turns, and General Hospital
(she performed three songs live on GH that season).
New York born Morley wrote, produced and arranged the album “Days
Like These”. (licensed by Universal Music France, released
January 2006). Co-produced with Ken Rich and multi Grammy®-winning
engineer Jay Newland.
Morley has toured with the widely-hailed Lilith Fair and has done
opening spots for Neil Finn and the Dave Matthews Band. She has
performed for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela in
Capetown, South Africa, and at Carnegie Hall with David Amram for
Eco-Fest. Morley participated in the Tribute to Joni Mitchell at
Symphony Space and sold out the Thalia Theater. She has toured Europe
in the musical, The Temptations of St. Anthony and sang alongside
Toshi Reagon and Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon on the soundtrack for
the HBO special, Beah Richards, A Black Woman Speaks.
Morley was the recipient of the Abe Olman Scholarship for excellence
in song writing, representing ASCAP and performed at the 60th anniversary
of the UN.
Morley & rsquo;s new signing to Universal France has resulted
in great tours with Amadou et Mariam and Simply Red. In NY she performs
at Brooklyn Academy of Music and sold-out shows at NYC’s Joe’s
Pub, one of the finest music venues in the city.
