Richard Morris Short Info

"Smoky vocals and rustic, yet complex guitar melodies lightly linger to create warm and gentle folk. Having just finished a hefty European Tour, with his new ep "Await the Sunset" in-tow, Morris has been receiving notable attention worldwide, and rightfully so; this is a very charming little record" - The Flux Presents

"Portsmouth's answer to Jack Johnson" - Katie Martin, BBC Radio Solent

"Many singer songwriters get lost within the sea of singer songwriters, but occasionally you find one that sticks out. One of them is Richard Morris" - Fret-Buzz Magazine

"In terms of encores, this gig is up there with one of the most memorable I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing" - Kerrie Oaks, Portsmouth University Magazine

"His music is reflective of the work he puts in as an artist" - Strong Island

"Morris’ tone is so beautiful and the harmonies from his band allow him to slot perfectly into the music industry with his performance abilities to shine through. With the talent he possesses it won’t be long till we see Richard Morris sell out all venues across this city." - PureFM

Richard and his band are off to a soaring start in 2016 after releasing their debut video for the single “What Is Love” with Vevo. Taken off their debut ep “Await The Sunset” the single was supported by VevoUS and premiered by the world famous Vocalzone who invited them into the studio to record an acoustic session of the track after winning their 15 second cover competition on Instagram.
