San Diego, CA, January 26, 2017 --(PR.com)-- San Diego based Singer/Songwriter Chris Morris' latest release, “Recollection,” compiles 12 handpicked soulfully inspiring songs that represent his style, soul and essence. Though some of the songs have been previously released, each track was remixed and remastered from the ground up. The result is depth, clarity, punch and more importantly vibe. “Recollection,” is a positively inspirational reminder of the road traveled while appreciating the journey on the pursuit of happiness.
Pocket Records, a record label based in China, recently contacted Chris about promoting and distributing his music in the surprisingly untapped Chinese market. Though he is still in production on an all new album, he pitched the idea of remixing/remastering 12 handpicked songs from his vast catalog. He went into the vault and remixed songs that represent the style, soul and essence of his creations. The songs sounds have new life and the mixes are full of depth, punch and clarity unheard on the original single releases. The results prompted the release of "Recollection" in the U.S., Europe, Asia and other territories prior to its April 2017 release on Pocket Records. "Recollection," is now available on Chris' official website: www.theartofchrismorris.com
Chris has been fortunate to have his music reach fans worldwide. In recent years, he composed music for many major commercials in China including compositions for the mobile giant “Huawei,” famous dermatology brand “Dermes,” and “Coke Ice Dew.” In 2013, along with his band “Roots Covenant,” toured Taiwan as part of the Ghost Festival celebration. His music has been played on countless Internet Radio Stations in countries like Ireland, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia and many more. Roots Covenant's latest album, "Divine Light," was released in 2015.
Among the highlights on “Recollection,” are “Higher,” which is an energetic ode to his appreciation of the healing powers of music. “Let Your Hair Down,” is instant vintage at its finest. An upbeat groove with a nostalgic yet currently accessible vibe that sounds like a cross between Curtis Mayfield and Justin Timberlake. “Another Day To Run,” is a dramatically inspirational song which musically reflects his rekindled passion for reggae. Its anchored by a haunting trombone melody, shredding organ solo and soaring vocals wrapped around classical chord progressions. “Love Speaks Louder Than Words,” was written as the soundtrack to his wedding. It’s a heartfelt tribute to his wife with its message of action more than words. “Kid,” is a posthumous collaboration with his Father. Their shared passion of artists like Chicago, Steely Dan and Earth, Wind & Fire are instantly noticeable. “Child Of The Universe,” is a unique reminder that anything is achievable if you are willing to tear down the walls and start right now.
A devoted Husband and Father, Chris is pouring his life experiences in an all new album currently in production and slated for release in 2017. He is a co-founder of "Avant Garde Music Company," San Diego's premier school for music and multimedia education which opened in January. Also on the horizon in 2017 is a summer tour with his all star band 'Roots Covenant' as well as dates with the acclaimed band 'Stranger.'
