In this Jammerzine Exclusive interview, we talk to a true multi-instrumentalist. I stress multi-instrumentalist because, I think anyway, that they make the best songwriters. And George Morris is a great songwriter. Hands down. And here you get, not only a preview of that in a track off of his upcoming album, you get a glimpse into the mind behind the machine that is George Morris and the Gypsy Chorus. To like an artist means even more when you appreciate an artist and, after this interview, you will be the latter when it comes to George Morris.

About George Morris
Raised by musical parents, George Morris was born to write and perform music. He began making an impact on the Detroit music scene in the mid 2000’s with the Satin Peaches. In summer 2007 the Satin Peaches were included in the lineup of Lollapalooza.
The band gained international exposure when they hooked up with Oasis manager Marcus Russell and signed on with the major label Island Records. Citing “lack of collaborative inspiration” the band called it quits in 2010 and George immediately focused on writing new material, expanding his guitar chops, piano skills and strategizing the next move.
In 2012 he recorded a solo record entitled Organ Solos. In mid-2013, Morris, along with the Peaches bassist, Aaron Nelson got together with Helena Kirby (keyboard) and Zach Pliska (drums) to form the current line-up, George Morris & the Gypsy Chorus. Each member of the group is a seasoned musician and together their recordings and performances are captivating and timeless.
With this solid lineup, George Morris is now ready to continue his musical quest with renewed spirituality, passion and a zest for finding the perfect musical soundtrack for our human experience.
Playing venues such as Saint Andrew’s Hall that November opening for the likes of Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas, The Crofoot Ballroom with Flint Eastwood, the Royal Oak Music Theater with Ben Sharkey, the Traverse City Film Festival at the Opera House & The State Theater. The list goes on and on.
They were tied for “Best Indie Band” & “Best Live Performance” for Real Detroit’s Best of 2014 Issue after having been a band for less than a year!! They were deemed Detroit’s “Best Live Performance”!!
