Artist Spotlight: Matt Morris

A good friend of mine (Teia B) told me to check out Matt Morris and i must say i love the tone of his voice. I actually spent another hour listening to several live performances and i love his lyrics and his embrace of personal experiences, politics,romance and spirituality. GUESS WHAT!? Morris used to be a Mouseketeers! So of course he's worked with a few of his mates. Morris and Christina Aguilera co-wrote five songs on her Stripped album, including the hit “Can’t Hold Us Down”; they also wrote Kelly Clarkson’s hit, “Miss Independent.” Morris teamed up with Timberlake to craft “The Only Promise That Remains” – a duet performed by Timberlake and Reba McEntire for the Reba Duets album. The pair also wrote “(Another Song) All Over Again” produced by mega-producer Rick Rubin, for Justin’s 2008 FutureSex/LoveSounds. Most importantly Matt has his own album titled " When Everything Breaks Open" Not to mention he just appeared on the George Lopez show and will appear on Ellen as well.
