The Morrison Brothers Band
Drawing on their musical roots in Nashville, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C., The Morrison Brothers Band play a unique brand of country/rock music. Founded in 2007 by brothers Truman and Willie Morrison, the group's award-winning sound took form in their hometown of Washington, DC with the additions of brothers Matt and Kevin Nolan. The band is currently based out of Nashville and is performing regularly in the Eastern, Mid-Western, and Southern U.S. In the last few years, The Morrison Brothers Band has opened for Merle Haggard, Leon Russell, Frankie Ballard, Maggie Rose, Old Dominion and Big Smo, and shared stages with many of the biggest acts in country music today from Alan Jackson to Alison Krauss to Tim McGraw. In 2014, with over 8,000 submissions worldwide, the band won 1st place in the country category in the "Unsigned Only" music competition for their song "Little Miss Whiskey" off their album State of the Union. The band also recently wrote and recorded the new theme song for The Washington Capitals for Comcast Sports Net, and their video for the song can be seen on television prior to games. The Morrison Brothers highly anticipated new EP, produced by nationally renowned recording artist Maggie Rose, is due to be released in April 2016.
Jenny Leigh's sound is an electric combination of the singer's city girl lifestyle and country girl background and her songs are fused with hints of soul and pop. Inspired by relationships, ups and downs, and lessons learned along the way, her original heart-felt lyrics paired with her unforgettable voice ring clear and true.
After releasing her self-titled EP in 2009, her song "Set Me Free" fell into regular rotation almost instantly on Washington DC's WMZQ 98.7 and Baltimore's WPOC 93.1 radio. She has been a featured Artist on WPOC 93.1 and a regular on their Charm City Country show.
In recent years, she has shared the stage with national country acts, including: Randy Houser, Lo Cash Cowboys, The Eli Young Band, Josh Gracin, Hootie & the Blowfish, Gloriana, and Dierks Bentley and has worked with John Rich on CW’s singing competition show, “The Next” in which she was a finalist.
Jenny’s music video for her single "Crossroads" currently has over 130,000 views on YouTube and captures the fiery heart and soul of this liberating song. This song along with "Break Free", which was co-written with Mark Bryan of Hootie in the Blowfish, are a couple of the tracks that make up her EP, “Falling Forward” which is in regular rotation on local radio.
Not only has she been making a splash in the country world, spending a lot of time in Nashville working on a new release but has caught attention across other genres of music. She recently recorded vocals for the making of Under Armour’s commercial “Cam’s Night Out” with DJ Araabmuzik and has been tracking vocals for pop, hip hop, and country songwriters from Baltimore to Nashville.
Artistically, Jenny draws inspiration from a wide variety of female performers: Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride vocally, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift lyrically, Sheryl Crow and Grace Potter musically. You’ll find that her sound takes country music to a whole new level with a delicious edge!
As a musician, Jenny's goal is simple: to move people through music. "There's no feeling that compares to hearing a song, letting it in, letting go, and dancing with no reservations!" says Jenny. "That's a gift that I want to give music lovers everywhere.
