Houses in the Sky
The Gregory Morris Group (Cincinnati, Ohio) combines fundamental elements of a traveling storyteller, jazz influenced dynamic percussion, bittersweet folk roots and east coast horn creating a bastion of invention that shanghais the senses into a hyper real environment rich with [un]savory characters. One part jazz, one part folk, one part punk, one part rock, but it's really all about the songs. Bank robberies, pregnant pirates, time travelers, voodoo spells, allegory and plain old sex drugs and rock n roll conspire to reveal a world of simple feelings in exotic places. A broken heart by any other name... A genuine enjoyment of the art and the opportunity to play together keeps the music and the performer fresh and sincere and the songs, like any good story, can never really be told the same way twice. With their first full length album 'Houses in the Sky' (May 2005), GMG is expanding their regular local rotation to include regional and national venues, continuing to focus on the balance between compelling songs and entertaining shows.
