Morley brings her unique blend of jazz, folk and soul all over the world.
Be it solo with her acoustic guitar or full band, her message is consistent and clear; love, justice and inspiration. Tonight Morley explores new terrain singing some of her favorite Jazz compositions in addition to her own originals.
Morley uses music as a tool for conflict resolution and dialogue facilitation when working with youth from international conflict zones. She has presented for TEDWomen, her song “Women of Hope” (video by Damani Baker “Still Bill” film portrait of the life of Bill Withers) has been featured in documentaries and has brought her before world leaders and policy makers such as His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Richard Branson and Ban Ki-moon.
