Mike Morris

Acoustic music with a groove. Progressive folk. Heavy Wood. Mike Morris defies the stereotype of the solo acoustic musician. With bluesy vocals and bass-heavy guitar playing, performed on 6- and 12-string guitars, his sound moves effortlessly from folk and blues to rock and rap. With a distinctive percussive style that sets him apart from other solo artists, Mike turns the guitar into a kick drum, using slaps, pops and harmonics in a way few solo performers do. “The acoustic guitar is an incredibly expressive instrument,” he says, “and yet there’s something so simple about it. The electric guitar may have changed the world, but the acoustic guitar keeps it turning.”
