"Morris has one of those all-too-rare voices that are made to order for the type of supercharged pop music he plays, with sweet high notes, a dirty midrange, and enough power to take either of them anywhere he wants them to go" (The Guardian)
Award winning recording artist Jeffrey Morris is a purveyor of pure pop. A MacEwan University graduate in Jazz Studies/Guitar Performance, Morris has internationally released and toured two critically acclaimed albums afterglow, and Far Away, sharing the stage with artists such as Bryan Adams, Steve Earle, Tom Cochrane, The Tragically Hip, and Randy Bachman. His numerous single releases have received heavy commercial radio play, national film festival features, and garnered top recognition from The John Lennon, and UK International Songwriting Competitions.
Whether it's penning modern rhythmic pop, or 'remember when' power pop nuggets, Morris is well recognized for his unique ability to craft intelligent, radio ready pop music.
"PEI singer-songwriter Jeffrey 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"
Steven Cooke - The Chronicle Herald
"Jeffrey 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…"

"... Power pop can be wickedly good when everything comes together the way it's supposed to, and it came together for PEI's Jeffrey Morris Thursday night in Halifax... Kicking off Much Music's Rock Stage, Morris and his bandmates managed to deliver a nearly flawless set of radio friendly pop tunes from his most recent album...
"...with a strong first album afterglow, Morris shows an ear for listener friendly rock, lots of melody toughened up buy solid, crunchy guitar. He's a fine singer too, able to drive the tunes along on the strength of his voice..."
Bob Mersereau - Backbeat
" Morris's latest project...Far Away, like its predecessor, strikes a nice balance between upbeat guitar-driven pop tunes and Beatlesque ballads. Morris' vocals are solid here and his music is well crafted with plenty of hooks..."
Doug Gallant - The Guardian
" POWER POP IS BACK... thanks to singer-songwriter Jeffrey Morris. His solo debut afterglow is a feast of melodic hooks, big guitar sounds and radio friendly tunes that recall the Heyday of bands Raspberries and Cheap Trick as well as latter day practitioners Weezer and Matthew Sweet.
