3 song EP "An Appointment with the Optimist" released by Emerald City Ruins 2007

10 song LP "You Me and God" released by Future Destination Records, 2008



Formed in late 2005, Y/Our Sparkle Heart is a indie/folk/rock band that hails from Greenwood, South Carolina. The band is fronted by husband and wife Ian and Sarah Morris who have melded their love of world music into a folk/rock format where catchy melodies and instrument hooks are spiced by an unusual array of instruments from around the world. Chinese lute, cello, violin, and melody horn are just some of the unique instruments that compliment the more expected four piece instrumentation of guitar, electric guitar, bass and drums.

This four piece band is intent on delivering inspiring and hopeful messages within their songs. Their fans include everyone from young children, teens, and elderly who are uplifted by the positive lyrics and upbeat style of Y/Our Sparkle Heart.

Y/Our Sparkle Heart put out their first three song EP - "Appointment with Optimist" in 2007 under Athens, GA label Emerald City Ruins. They have since been signed under the indie label Future Destination Records and have released their first full length album "You, Me and God" in January 2008.
