Multi-talented singer-songwriter Morley breathes sensuality into activism with her unabashed love songs, humorous takes on life, and worldly lyrical stance couched in her warm and soulful sound that ranges wide with influences from jazz, soul, and world music.
Undivided (to be released in the spring but available at her Blue Note performance tonight) is the latest collection of songs from this captivating performer. The thirteen songs on this self-produced album reflect a vulnerable journey of love, loss, and the willingness to begin again, with instrumental and vocal contributions by a stellar cast of musicians including Raul Midón, the legendary David Amram, Joan Wasser, and Dave Eggar.
Morley has performed all over the world and most recently had the distinct honor of presenting at TEDWomen. Her song "Women of Hope" has been featured in several documentaries and has brought her before many world leaders and policy makers. She has performed for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Ban Ki-moon, Mary Robinson, and Ela Gandhi. She has also written, collaborated, and shared the stage with renowned artists such as Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, Toshi Reagon, Raul Midón, Amadou et Mariam, Joan Wasser, Dave Matthews, Angélique Kidjo, Wynton Marsalis, and Cassandra Wilson.
