Singer, songwriter, keyboardist Nancy Morris is a dynamic performer who has been entertaining audiences for decades with her powerful, silky smooth voice. A member of a highly talented musical Massachusetts family, Nancy fronted a popular Boston band and was an active studio singer while still in her teens. After high school, Nancy studied at Berklee College of Music, and was hired to teach at the famed institution. Nancy married fellow Berklee teacher Mike Morris, and the two decided to move Nashville, Tennessee. Nancy quickly gained notice as an accomplished keyboardist/singer and songwriter. She toured with legendary performers Brenda Lee, singer/songwriter Radney Foster, and served as the opening act for MCA recording artist Lee Greenwood. Performing at numerous Nashville venues, including the Grand Ole Opry and the Bluebird Café, Nancy's days were spent in the recording studio singing demos for publishing companies, singing jingles for regional and national broadcast, and serving as the featured entertainment aboard the General Jackson Showboat. After the birth of their second daughter, the family returned to New England where Nancy has rejoined the Berklee faculty, and continues to write songs and perform.
