Terry Morrison - one of the most intellectually compelling songwriters in Edmonton

Welcome

Hey Folks!
Well it’s been a while since I’ve visited my own site so I thought I’d take a few minutes and catch you up.
This year’s been racing by and while I have continued to do some playing and singing, I have been spending it doing music with other folks.
I have however been digging around in the files finishing and resurrecting tunes of my own, as well as penning a few new ones. I hope to get out there and do a little performing of my own music in the coming months.
I have had the pleasure of singing with Asani over the last couple of years and it has been a great experience. Literally touching base with my roots.
John Gorham and I continue working on new duo material and are making plans to take it on the road more.
We are also doing work with The Pleading Hearts and are working towards getting our live recording in the ‘can’.

Terry Morrison and John Gorham ‘First Waltz’ was produced by Canadian musician and songwriter Stephen Fearing and recorded by Scott Franchuk of Edmonton’s Riverdale Recorders. The recording is a combination of Terry and John’s original compositions as well as tunes from some of their friends in the Canadian songwriting community. It features some great playing from both musicians as well as; Maria Dunn, Cam Neufeld, Byron Myhre, Bob Blair, Paul Martineau, Keith Rempel and Stephen Fearing. From the quirky to the poignant it is a great testament to the combined talents of this powerhouse duo.

This is their first album together, and hopefully the first of many more to come.They are perfect foils for each other, Gorham with his friendly, gravelly voice, Morrison with her rich, jazz-inflected set of pipes, and both with their timeless poignant tunes that pay great respect to the past times in Alberta.
The album is full of old fashioned charm – Penguin Eggs

Terry’s recording ‘riches and grace’ was produced by Edmonton musician Mike Lent and features some fine playing from some of the best players in Edmonton. It’s a real showcase of Morrison’s vocal prowess that combines a jazz sensibility with Terry’s own inimitable muscial style.

Songs From The Avenue is a project that features the songs of 11 songwriters and bands from the Alberta Avenue Community in Edmonton. The songs were all written about some aspect of the neighbourhood, both historical and social. Terry’s song 1942 was written from the viewpoint of a young woman during WWII. Edmonton was a major staging ground for troops, the majority of whom were posted in barracks which flanked the Alberta Avenue community.
The CD is released on Six Shooter Records

The Smithsonian Folkways has released an album featuring the songs of Alberta artists. Terry’s song, ‘Long Dusty Road’, from her ‘High Mileage Soul’ CD is one of the tracks included on this disc. It is a good indication of the high regard awarded to Terry Morrison as a songwriter.

Carol Project

The ‘Christmas Carol Project’ , a stage show that has featured the same musical cast members for 20 years, wrapped up this past Christmas as this ensemble. It was a memorable run.

The Carol Project is like one of those tiny presents off in the corner under the tree that you almost ignore. But to do so would be a big mistake, for the true spirit of the season shines within it. Toronto Star Review

Carol Project Video Clip

I have recently been asked to sub in for Sherryl Sewepagaham of the Edmonton vocal group ‘Asani’. It’s been a pretty challenging learning curve but with the huge benefit of getting to perform with these wonderful women. Sherryl is off to Vancouver to further her education in music therapy. Asani
