"Smooth and soulful"

"Smooth and soulful, this singer/songwriter's organic, heartfelt vibe comes across like Bob Seger in a low-key mode. "California Blue" and "Hollywood" express yearning and disillusionment. Perhaps most affecting, though, is Morris' "My Name," which addresses a child's abandonment by his father. This artist seasons his tracks with arrangements that include not only acoustic guitar and piano, but some banjo textures, as well. Nice stuff, skillfully rendered. - Music Connection Magazine

"Noelle Lysdahl"

"Similar to a good friend who will "tell you like it is," with insightful sincerity, here is a blues-pop artist that's real, down to earth, sweet and sensitive. Transcended from the depths of his soul, Darryl Morris formed a tangibly introspective lyrical masterpiece. Backed with equally rhythmic and wise musicians, Morris sounds like a cross between Dave Matthews and Tracy Chapman. "Were he a photographer, Darryl Morris would be compared to Ansel Adams, speaking of today's generation through a new lens" - Thomas Ball Entertainment. He has found within himself that uncanny ability to speak of deep truths in a musically authentic, simple way. - Malibu Monthly Magazine


"Hollywood" displays an incipient brilliance. Morris writes art songs. Flowing,
Melodic and wordy, they are notable for their love of language and richness of imagery. Such as 'Kimmy' and 'Rainy Days,' paint precise, moody pictures of places and times."
- The Boston Herald, MA


CD - My Name



Darryl Morris is a gifted minstrel who offers a blend of acoustic music that is introspective and reflective of life's deeper meanings and mysteries. Through his music, Darryl shares with his audience thought-provoking perspectives, like the bards of old but with fresh insight. He strives to offer everything one would crave in a songwriter - passion, originality, and important message that encourage listeners to know themselves a little better.

Were he a photographer, Darryl would be compared to Ansel Adams, speaking to today's generation through a new lens, with the clarity of a camera, exposing rarely considered angles. A man of great talent, perseverance and passion, Darryl is aiming to do for the American consciousness what Adams did for the national parks.

A transcendent singer-songwriter, Darryl has been influenced by those who have a message. The primary and spiritual sources of his music come from such activists as Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Angela Davis. He has also been musically influenced by the brilliance and the melodic imagery of Jimmy Hendrix and Freddie Mercury of Queen, and the lyrical perseverance of James Taylor, Tracy Chapman, Bernie Taupin, and
John Waite.

Darryl has been welcomed and received as a solo acoustic artist in various venues and some of the finest Colleges and Universities throughout the country. Darryl would like to have the opportunity to perform music that can be experienced by all people of the world regardless of age, sex, color and/or ethnic origins. His main goal is to make a positive impact on an individual's consciousness by creating music to be enjoyed and remembered.
