Carrie Morrison - Songwriter, Vocalist, Pianist

Born and raised in Louisville, KY, Carrie Morrison has been playing piano since age seven. She moved to “higher ground” in 2004, and has been a denizen of local clubs and venues in and around Western NC for a decade. Music has always been part of her life, from improvisational and classical piano study to choirs and musicals. Morrison is known for melodically strong songs with personal, pithy lyrics. She has recorded and performed with many local artists: the late Tom Rogers, Steve Whiteside, Ellen Trnka, Andrew Thelston, Garry Segal, Rob Curtis, and the late Terry Wetton, who also produced Morrison’s 2013 release Carolina Blonde. Her new album, Miles and Miles, is produced by Chris Rosser (Hollow Reed Arts Studio) of award-winning ensemble Free Planet Radio and was released in November 2017.

Morrison is proud to be a teacher of Exceptional Children, English, and Reading at Brevard High School. Prior to serving at Brevard, she taught at East Henderson High School for 12 years. She is grateful to work with such caring professionals and wonderful students. In her free time, Morrison is an avid hiker.
