"Jeffrey Joe would most readily be described as a balladeer, favoring the gems of the Great American Songbook. At any of his performances you’re likely to hear the songs of Hank Williams, Rodgers and Hart, Marty Robbins, and Cole Porter. He sings the hits of Broadway as well as the musical favorites that have spilled out of all the juke joints and honkytonks of this country’s back roads and byways. A tenor, Morin never seems to put much effort into singing. The lyrics and melody seem to flow from him very easily. Surprisingly, even when he doesn’t have a microphone and his guitar isn’t amplified, as it is for some house concerts and smaller performance venues, both his voice and guitar have a great deal of presence and fill a room without any trouble."
