Mini Bio (1)

Matt Morris is an artist with extraordinary talent, whose music blurs the lines between acoustic soul, folk and mainstream pop. This 28 year-old, Colorado native transforms the audiences who witness him sing. His voice has the power to bring stillness to a noisy room. There is an intangible quality about Matt; a special spark that shines only in the eyes of genuine stars. Matt's performances have been seen around the world, both on stage and screen. In 1998, Matt's music was showcased in a PBS documentary on Art and Music shot in Moscow, Russia, and more recently in December of 2002, Matt appeared as a featured performer on the Scott Hamilton and Friends NBC Christmas Special. As co-headliner for the largest free 4th of July celebration of 2003, he performed with his band to an overflow crowd of more than 85,000 people. At age 12, Matt began a 4 year stint on the nationally syndicated, prime-time cable show, The New Mickey Mouse Club, along side superstars Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. His fellow cast members respected Matt for his musical abilities, and invited him to collaborate in their recording projects. He and Aguilera wrote 5 songs off of her sophomore album "Stripped", including the hit single "Can't Hold Us Down". The pair also coined the Chart-Topping smash, "Miss Independent", sung by American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson. "Stripped" received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Vocal Pop Album; "Can't Hold Us Down" received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Collaboration, and "Miss Independent" received a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal. Matt released the album "UnSpoken" in 2003. "His music is so beyond the last generation," says longtime friend Justin Timberlake, who co-wrote one song on Matt's debut album, UnSpoken. "Matt's stuff allows people to be creative while they're listening. It's just good music." In 2007, Matt was signed to Tennman Records, a joint venture between Justin Timberlake and Interscope Records.
