Austin Texas veteran roots music producer, songwriter, and performer Gurf Morlix is touring the country in support of his new release, ‘The Soul and The Heal.’
Perhaps one of Morlix’s newest and most recognizable fans, film star and writer/director Ethan Hawke remarked about this ninth and newest studio release: “If you are serious about music, you might want to get serious about Gurf Morlix. Part Alt/country, part blues, part literature- every one of Gurf’s albums are excellent- but The Soul & The Heal is the best.” (Morlix recently appeared in a bio-pic about his friend and musical cohort, the late Blaze Foley, directed by Hawke.)
Buffalo born and Texas bred, Morlix has provided countless indelible musical moments in the last 40-plus years-his exemplary guitar and production work with Lucinda Williams, his instrumental accompaniment to artists ranging from Blaze Foley to Warren Zevon, his production of watermark albums for artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen and Mary Gauthier – and a series of eight solo records that have a singular worldview, both harrowing and heartening, often at the same time.
The record’s title, The Soul and The Heal, gives a clue to the songwriter’s signature way with words, bending and shaping them to communicate in a voice both clever and insightful. The songwriter says that the title speaks to “the healing of the soul from all the damage we inflict on ourselves.”
This batch of songs yields the expected Morlix darkness and humor, but woven between are numbers imbued with a warm light. The call to positive action on "Move Someone," the mindfulness of "Right Now" and the sensitive finale "The Best We Can" balance this focused collection, an album that manages to run the gamut of emotions without being cloying or obvious. With "The Soul And The Heal" Morlix continues to create his own singular musical universe, but the yin and yang of his outlook has never been as in sync as it is now. The Soul and The Heal is available for sale on Amazon.com, iTunes, CD Baby, and at every show. For more information about Gurf Morlix, visit www.gurfmorlix.com
