Carrie Morrison - Songwriter, Vocalist, Pianist

Carrie Morrison's music will break your heart - in the best way. Melodic and memorable, her songs make connections. The songwriter/pianist/vocalist, a native of Louisville, Ky., has been playing piano since age seven. She moved to “higher ground” in 2004, and has been a popular act at a variety of venues in the Western N.C. area for well over a decade. Music has always been part of her life, from a youthful obsession with musicals, to choral groups and improvisational and classical piano study. Morrison is known for melodically strong songs with personal, pithy, lyrics, ranging from the deeply emotional to the slightly silly. Her EP "Carolina Blonde" was released in 2013 and produced by the late Terry Wetton. Her newest album, "Miles and Miles," was produced by Chris Rosser, of Hollow Reed Arts Studio and award-winning ensemble Free Planet Radio, and was released in late 2017. Morrison has had airplay on WTZQ and WNCW, and enjoys collaborations with several area artists onstage and in the studio. 
Morrison is proud to be a teacher of Exceptional Children, Reading, and English at Brevard High School, where she is grateful to work with wonderful kids and colleagues. She is married to Mike, the love of her life, her champion, and best roadie.
