The road from March 2020 to now has been full of twists, turns. With not much to do but worry or write, I chose the latter more often. There has been no shortage of things to write about, so a second album is underway, expected to be released in 2023. I'm being very meticulous. Out of the pandemic has sprung a new and improved Simone with a fresh take on life and love. I'm beyond excited to lay it all down on record.

In the meantime, live music is back (amen to that!), and I'm out performing for audiences all over the GTA, as much as humanly possible, alongside raising 2 kids, teaching voice & piano privately and acting as Musical Director in youth musical theatre.

ME...in a nutshell...

As a singer and a writer, I am devoted to expression and connection through music. To truly connect -- to music and to people -- authenticity should be felt both by the artist and by the listener. Great music is a sumptuous cocktail of soulfulness, subtlety, tenderness, spunk, depth of experience - expressed in a way that artfully squeezes every tasty bit of musical goodness out of a song -- never overdone, never underdone.  People gravitate to realness. There's a certain romance I feel with a melody, with a lyric and with my audience.  In craftily-spun musical stories, I aim to share an intimate musical experience wrapped in velvety grooves and poetic charm. 

SINCE you've read this far...

Perhaps you'll enjoy my all-original album Settling Up". Widely-acclaimed, it burst onto the scene at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart in Canada and has received extensive radio airplay, interviews and reviews like these... (though there are more in the Press section of this site)

    "Toronto jazz vocalist Simone Morris’ debut album Settling Up is an absolute treat to the listener, a pop of delicious and sultry goodness in an otherwise dull & dreary day."
   ~  Kati Killaspea - THE WHOLENOTE MAGAZINE

 

   "SETTLING UP will delight jazz aficionados and newcomers alike."
    
~  Kati Killaspea - THE WHOLENOTE MAGAZINE

 Featuring performances by Adrean Farrugia (piano), Mike Freedman (guitar), William Sperandei (trumpet), Bill McBirnie (flute), Chris Adriaanse (bass) and Max Senitt (drums), the songs are reflective, poignant and personal to me.

 

LOOK for me...

I can be regularly found singing across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond at notable clubs, festival stages, and private events.

As a featured Jazz Artist on the roster of the award-winning CURBSIDE CONCERTS CANADA, you can also find me delivering a concert at your local Cadillac Fairview Shopping Mall all across Southern Ontario.
