Description

Come join us at the Wanderlust Coffeehouse and Wine Lounge for an evening of music!

"Music was central to the Morris sisters as they grew up amid the flat farmlands of Cleveland, Mississippi, because, Natalia jokes, “all our friends in elementary school played soccer and football — and none of us was ever any good at sports.” She started piano lessons at age 6. Then, at age 10, when she began playing her dad’s old guitar after finding it in his closet. Her younger sisters were inspired to get into their own instruments, with Christina (“Tinka”) choosing drums and the youngest, Hannah, getting into bass guitar.

Being children of the Delta, they were inspired first by the blues artists they heard in nearby venues. They rehearsed, with Christina leading the way in fashioning their vocal blend. By ages 9, 10 and 12, they were being booked to appear at nearby blues festivals. But, they also listened to and learned from other genres, especially harmony-oriented groups such as The Beach Boys, The Mamas & the Papas, The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac.

Ultimately, they gravitated toward the Country genre. “We related to its storytelling,” Hannah explains. “You can get more passionate with country music because it allows you to really get your story out.”

“But country music is also like the blues,” Christina points out. “Both genres are really great at letting you express the inside story of your life.”
