Ten Tall Tales
Charlie Morris is not your typical Blues rocker. Yes, there are red-hot solos on guitar, slide and organ. Yes, there are solid grooves to get your feet moving. But it's Charlie's original songs that set him apart. Rootsy, hook-based tunes with witty lyrics about the usual bluesy topics - drinking, gambling, cheating and other fun stuff. A few covers by the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf and Ray Charles complete the mix. Charlie has released 5 CDs on the BluesPages label, and regularly tours the Southeastern US and Europe. Recent Comments: "Tasty guitar, pleasantly relaxed vocal, good entertainer, fun songs." - Bruce Iglauer, CEO of Alligator Records "Charlie writes like a man who has been down the road more than a few times." - Music writer and DJ Norman Davis "Mr. Morris has the sound that I love. He knows how to pick a guitar and make it sing. There is that down-home blues/rock and roll quality about his songs that makes my feet begin tapping as soon as he hits the first note. In concert, he and the band have that funky tightness that might remind you of bands like Little Feat.
