A graduate of the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music, Sarah Morris spent the first years of her career in Nashville, losing herself in the art of writing timeless Americana melodies. In 2016, Morris was a top four finalist in the NewSong Music Contest at Lincoln Center in New York City, 2nd place winner of the Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at MerleFest in Wilkesboro, N.C., and an Americana semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. In 2018, she went on to win the Kerrville New Folk Competition, collecting an honorable mention at the Telluride Troubadour contest along the way.
Scheduled for release on Feb. 21, Morris’s new album All Mine is an unapologetically obsessive tribute to the details she loves—rings of water on a dining room table, fingertips connecting in blush-heavy silence, the thrill-rush of wind in the seat of a swing. Anchored by the steady sweetness of her voice and the ready wink of her wit, All Mine leads us out of our hurry and into a stubborn indulgence in the intricate simplicity of it all. As a writer, lover, mother, and observer, Morris celebrates the trees that make up the forests of all of our stories, names them worthy of our attention, and invites us all to get just a little bit lost.
Here, we hope you enjoy the world premiere video for the title track from Morris’s new album, and then tune in Wednesday night, Feb. 19, at 11/10c to see the DittyTV Debut of the song on The Curve.
