Upcoming Shows

The road from March 2020 to now has been full of twists, turns and struggle. With not much to do but worry or write, thankfully the latter was chosen. There has been no shortage of things to write about, and a second album is firmly underway, expected to be released in 2022.

In the meantime, live music is slowly coming back.

Simone exudes an original blend of soulfulness, subtlety, tenderness, technique and a touch of spunk. Artfully luring listeners into her craftily-spun musical stories, she treats her audiences to an intimate  'dig-deep' musical experience, delicately wrapped in poetic sweetness and velvety charm.

After years performing the Toronto jazz circuit, Simone delved deeper into writing resulting in her debut all-original jazz album "Settling Up" (2018). 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.

    "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

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.

   "SETTLING UP will delight jazz aficionados and newcomers alike."

Simone is a regular performer across the Greater Toronto Area and is at home playing a duo concert as she is leading a full band. She has been featured in notable jazz clubs such as The Jazz Bistro, Manhattans, etc., as well as on festival stages.

Plans are firmly underway for a second album alongside raising her 2 children, teaching privately, and working as Musical Director in children's musical theatre.
