"Jenny Feniak"

As a seasoned musician and confirmed high - mileage soul, Morrison knows how to appreciate life’s finer points - and how to communicate that love through her music...her vibrant and colourful arrangements have a warmth and integrity youth will never know - Vue Weekly

"Peter North"

Armed with a large volume of original work, Morrison sings from the heart and writes material that finds her voice and acoustic guitar enveloping the crowd. Deep sounding, and smooth but imaginatively delivered vocals, make here one of the better solo acts in town.

Morrison has good reason to feel her music is finally reaching more and more folks via the grassroots promotion approach. Many of us feel it’s about time she got her due
- Edmonton Journal

"Roger Levesque"

“Her vocal dynamics ran smoothly from whispers to husky undertones and soaring quavers, with delicate pacing and simple, but effective, chord progressions. A new road tune suggests her pen is churning out some gems, as well.”

“....one of the most intellectually compelling songwriters in town...”

“ Morrison’s gift for painting aural pictures gives way to an aching intensity at points... ‘High Mileage Soul’ is the best testament yet that Morrison’s acute musical observations should be heard”
- Edmonton Journal

An accomplished guitar player, Morrisons unique sense of melody and phrasing create her own inimitable brand of contemporary roots music. Delivered in a rich sensual voice, her songs reflect a compassionate and innate intelligence. Spanning the range from jazzy folk to country, her music both soothes and cuts to the quick.
