The Back Road

Carrie Morrison

Carrie Morrison breaks your heart in the best way - a deeply resonating singer/songwriter who touches her audiences with strong melody and personal lyrics.

Born and raised in Louisville, Ky., Carrie has been playing piano since age 7. She moved to "higher ground" in 2004, and has been a denizen of local clubs and venues in and around western N.C. Music has always been part of her life, from improvisational and classical piano study, to choirs and musicals. Carrie's former addiction to musicals and admiration of modern piano sirens such as Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos have given way to songs that are melodically strong with personal, sometimes whimsical lyrics. Recording projects include "Music from the Back Room" and "Journey of You," produced by Steve Whiteside, "A Live One," produced by Rogers, and "Carolina Blonde," produced by Terry Wetton of Hogrock Mountain Music in 2013, now available on CDBaby, Amazon, and iTunes; "Carolina Blonde" is also played on Pandora Radio. She is currently working on a new CD with Chris Rosser of Hollow Reed Arts. "...Louisville, Ky. native Carrie Morrison delighted a crowd of about 30 with her resonant vocals and keyboard play. Her pop-folk songs included from her latest CD, Carolina Blonde, produced by Wetton. ... Patrons were impressed with her passionate vocals and clever lyrics." — The Hendersonville Tribune
