On Thursday July 20, 2017 at 8:00 PM the soulful and stunning Daje Morris will join Loch Brown on the first stop of his Afro-à-Go-Go tour. Daje is a wandering poet, and a truth-telling, story-seeking singer-songwriter. She is often found toeing the lines between introversion, extroversion, and shamelessness. She is deeply devoted to exposing beauty in all of its messy and inarticulate forms.
In the Spring of 2016, she released her first EP, “The Bloom Project”, which granted her a placement in Knoxville Music Warehouses’ “Knoxville’s Top 16 Album/EP Releases of 2016”. Her style is a subtly soulful approach to Americana and Folk. Her influences include Regina Spektor, The Weepies, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Billie Holiday.
As a spoken-word poet, she has performed with 5th Woman, a team of poets who write, teach and speak on the souls of women and their diverse expressions in culture (2016 – 2017). She is now working alongside the 5th Woman as a creative director writer, contributor, and sometimes mentor to younger poets in the Greater Knoxville area. She released her first printed and bound collection of poems, “On Becoming Gold” in June. Her music can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Google Play. For all things Daje Morris connect at:
