Born on the Mason-Dixon Line, Lisa Morris grew up in the hometown of Ryan Adams - Jacksonville, North Carolina. Classical music, opera and jazz were her earliest childhood musical influences. With an eclectic taste in music, Morris was influenced early on by great vocalists of previous generations; Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Billy Holiday, Dina Washington, Judy Garland and Barbara Streisand. She went on to pursue classical music and an opera career. As her voice matured, she discovered a rich, soulful sound and spent much time listening to R&B artists Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Diana Ross and Teena Marie. Jill Scott and Marisa Monte are two of her favorite female artists. Classic Soul is one of her favorite genres and “Time Goes By So Fast” is a nod to those sultry “between the sheets” tunes made famous by Barry White, Isaac Hayes, Teddy Pendergrass, The Isley Brothers and Al Green.
