About the Speaker:

Morley - Singer-songwriter
Composer, singer and producer Morley breathes sensuality into activism with her worldly lyrical stance.

Why you should listen

Morley’s warm and soulful voice often gets her compared to Annie Lennox and Roberta Flack. And she uses that gorgeous voice as an instrument of change. Using music to facilitate dialogue, she works with teenagers from domestic and international conflict zones, as well as organizations such as Face to Face/Faith to Faith, the Door, the Lower East Side Girls Club, Code Pink, and the Fortune Society (a program that facilitates reentry into society from prison), to name a few. Her music has been used in an array of films, including Burma and the Media: Amplifying Voices for Democracy.

Morley's next CD, Undivided, will be available in spring 2012; until then, check out her albums Seen, Days Like These, and sunmachine ... She has collaborated and toured with artists such as Angélique Kidjo, Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, Toshi Reagon, Dave Matthews, Raul Midón, Amadou et Mariam and Queen Latifah.
