"Jeff Morris has created a sort-of 'remember when' power pop gem here on his debut as it intermingles, quite intimately, the most classic sounds of such early 80's bands as The Hawks, The Producers and Rick Springfield… with the more modern touches of the 2002 reunion of Fools Face, The Candy Butchers, The Elms and The JTG Implosion.
Almost all these songs sound like they're ready to take on many different radio formats”

“Jeff Morris has caught the ear of many Maritime music-lovers with his penchant for catchy guitar riffs and soothing vocals. Now the talented singer-songwriter is making his way back to the capital region for a performance on Canada Day. And since he just released a new album, titled Far Away, he’s got a few new tunes to play. Morris said he allowed some of his influences to shine through on his latest single — Photograph. “I liked The Police a lot when I was younger so there’s a little bit of that sound in there, and maybe a bit of Maroon 5,” he said. “But the chorus is a straight-ahead, power-pop chorus. We were able to get a bigger, larger studio sound out of the small studio we used for recording. We’re really happy with this song and with all of the songs on it.”
Morris’ Canada Day performance will take place at 8 p.m.”

“PEI singer-songwriter Jeff Morris shows he still has a keen ear for hooks on his second CD 'Far Away', packing more melody per bar into each song than your average pop rocker.
The tracks have a stronger sense of melancholy and the guitars are a shade tougher than on his debut 'afterglow', but that only makes them dig in deeper after Morris' deft song construction grabs your attention.”
