Darrin Morris Band
The power and passion of great music coupled with an exciting live performance is what moves listeners and audiences. And the Darrin Morris Band delivers both in spades.
With a show that has been forged in the fire on stages across the country and in their home state of Texas, the group’s hard work is paying off as their debut single “Where Will I Be” climbs the Texas Music charts and they solidify their reputation as one of the premier live Country acts on the scene. And the band continues to build momentum performing at clubs, casinos, fairs and high profile events including the Longview Cattle Baron’s Ball, the Great Texas Balloon Race and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
With “Where Will I Be” the Darrin Morris Band take a major leap forward in capturing fans everywhere. The song is a powerful tale of deep love lost and radio is raving. On Air personality, Katie Dixon, from KFYN 104.3FM The River, in Paris TX says, “Where Will I Be” is a song everyone can relate to – with his deep, soothing voice this band has a very promising future. When a listener can relate to a song it's sure to be a hit and I think they've hit the nail on the head.”
Lead singer Darrin Morris first began singing as a teenager in the church where his father pastored. It was his love of Gospel combined with the influences of Country artists such as George Strait, Garth Brooks and Keith Whitley that helped to shape the soulful vocal style that has become his trademark. Morris is joined in the group with the exceptional talents of Jeremy Moore on drums and backing vocals; Blake Watson on bass guitar; Michael Olson on lead guitar, and Josh Smithers on rhythm guitar.
The Darrin Morris Band began performing together in October 2012, with just a few friends getting together to play at a local restaurant near Gilmer, Texas where the group is based. Soon, their camaraderie and common musical vision lit a fire and during the last four years the group has played across their home state of Texas, as well as Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Wyoming, Kansas, Nebraska and in Nashville, Tennessee.
With the success of their current chart-rising single, and a well-received 2015 debut album Country To The Bone under their belt, along with a mantle of awards from the East Texas Music Awards and the Nashville Universe Awards, the Darrin Morris Band are making their mark and all signs point to a very promising future, indeed.
