Composer and singer Morley breathes sensuality into activism with her unabashed love songs, humorous takes on life, and outspoken lyricism. Be it solo with her acoustic guitar or with full band, her message is consistent and clear; love, justice and inspiration. Tonight she presents “Witness” a special song journal inspired by her global travel, bearing witness to the diversity of resilience in the human spirit.

Morley uses music as a tool for conflict resolution and dialogue facilitation when working with youth and adults from conflict zones. She has presented for TEDWomen and a string of TEDx events. Her song “Women of Hope” (video by Damani Baker “Still Bill”) has been featured in Nobel Women’s Initiative documentaries and has brought her before many world leaders and policy makers such as His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Richard Branson and Ban Ki-moon.

She has written, collaborated, and shared the stage with such distinguished artists as Yungchen Lhamo, Dr.Bernice Johnson Reagon, Toshi Reagon, Angélique Kidjo, Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow, Queen Latifah, Wynton Marsalis, Joan Wasser, Amadou et Mariam, Raul Midón, and Cassandra Wilson to name a few. Morley has released five full length recordings under the auspices of Sony, Universal, Polydor, Sunny Side Records & independently.
