New Single Out Now
Hunkered down in Corona-ville I've been teaching guitar as much as possible -- both on-line and in person -- and spending some of that free time writing and recording songs at home.
This new song is about the very thing we were not allowed to do this year -- touring with a band. The song is called "Playin' In an Old Country Band," and has a real traditional folk vibe with acoustic bass, mandolin, guitar and three-part harmony vocals.
Promise on the Moon - Nov 4th
This new song in the style of music I used to play is coming out November 4th -- complete with a music video. The song is called "Promise on the Moon," a 6/8 rock ballad about a man with some big ideas gone terribly wrong.
Blue Morris currently performs with country artist Taylor-Rae. Their first album "Backseat Driver" was released in June 2019.
Winners of the 2018 Roxy Breakthrough Project, Taylor-Rae and the Backseat Drivers are a versatile band performing a variety of different genres from Country to Classic Rock. The Backseat Drivers are a group comprised of Cody Fox, Ryan Brown, Blue Morris and James Zielke. These talented musicians are extremely versatile performers who amaze the audience with their vocal and instrumental prowess.
With her debut album ‘Backseat Driver’ topping the iTunes Country Chart at #6 and its first 2 singles ‘Take Me Out Dancing’ and ‘Nashville’ finding success at Canadian Country Radio, Taylor-Rae is paving a name for herself in the music industry with her heartfelt songwriting and powerful vocals.
The album has ten original songs and was produced by Red Heartbreaker. The music has a vintage folk-rock vibe, loaded with sweetly driven guitars, thick vocal harmonies and vintage organ. Each song tells a story about regular Vancouver people who are all unlikely rockstars in their own ways.
The band features the same talented people you see Blue performing with on a regular basis:
Red Heartbreaker - guitar, backing vocals
Alex Kelley - bass, keys, backing vocals
Eric Rasmusson - drums
