Morrikel

BandRockSinger/Songwriter

After listening to Morrikel once, you will find yourself humming the songs after the show. After hearing the CD several times, you will struggle to get the melodies out of your head. Tight harmonies with exceptional lead guitars in original rock/alternative rock songs.

Biography

Morrikel plays original music from all three songwriting members, and sings harmonies on songs that are all clearly identifiable. We play 50 or more original songs per night 2-4 times a week in the Kenosha area. Our influences are quite diverse ranging from Incubus to the Eagles to Pink Floyd to Led Zeppelin to the Beatles, musically, and mostly LIFE.We do double lead guitar solos and frequently bring the crowd to applause before we get to finish songs. Glenn is such a prolific songwriter that he can write a song as the show goes on from 5 or more words given from the crowd. This amazing section of our show is called the Game, and when you see it you will be quite entertained and impressed.
We met at open jams in the Kenosha area and have been playing live as Firebutter, then Morrikel for nearly 2 years.

Lyrics

Inside Out

Written By: Glenn Morrison Jr.

I can't go where I have never been before
Will I get there before the end of time
We know we're addicted to
love can't see and we're all
messed up
Stressed out and we can't get up
Fall down and we're lifted up
We can't be there it's everything we've got
Will we stay there before the end of time
We know we're addicted to love
can't see and we're all
messed up
stressed out and we can't get
up
fall down and we're lifted up
I love the way you look at me your eyes connecting to mine
The way you feel I feel it too
I wanna say that I love you
We know we're addicted to
love can't see and we're all
messed up
stressed out and we can't get
up fall down and we're lifted up

Where You Know We'll Venture Off to

Written By: Glenn Morrison Jr.

And we are barefoot in city streets
and I'm so glad that we could meet
like confetti fireflies
heart pounding
your ready blue eyes
ray of light
cutting through the clouds
listen to the sound of the ocean crashing down
into the sand
You're like a diamond in the sky
and the moonbeam's so high
and when I hold your hand
it just makes me wanna fly
Save an empty chair and I'll be waiting right here
never wanna leave your side
