Carrie Morrison's music will break your heart - in the best way. Melodic and memorable, her songs make connections. The singer/songwriter/pianist, 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 venues in the Western N.C. area for more than 15 years. Music has always been part of her life, from a youthful obsession with musicals, to 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 album "Miles and Miles" was produced by Chris Rosser, of award-winning ensemble Free Planet Radio, and was released in late 2017. Her latest project, EP "The Neverwhere Sisters," produced by Andrew Thelston and Daniel Nisbet, featuring cellist JamieLeighBennett, was released summer 2021. Morrison has had airplay on WTZQ and WNCW, and enjoys collaborations with several local artists onstage and in studio. 

Morrison is a teacher of Exceptional Children, English, and Reading at a local high school. She is married to Mike, the love of her life, her champion, and best roadie.
