Craig Morrison Receiving Positive Response To U.S. Debut Release

(Nashville, Tenn. – July 9, 2012)  Australian-born Country artist Craig Morrison continues to receive positive feedback from critics and reviewers in response to his self-titled U.S. album release and debut single, “Fences.”

Respected MusicRow contributor and music critic, author and historian Robert Oermann wrote, “This Aussie cracks the U.S. country marketplace with a gently rolling social statement about the nature of barricades in our lives.  Well written and expertly produced, it’s a mighty promising debut.”

Popular Country and Roots music website Roughstock.com noted that “‘Fences’ is quite honestly, a lyrical gem.  The kind of song that any artist, let alone a new one, wants to record.  The metaphor of fences being obstacles in one’s life is something that is vivid and certainly true.  Morrison has a strong singing voice that recalls Rodney Crowell.”

Billboard.com and Music News Nashville’s Chuck Dauphin says, “There’s a lot to like when it comes to the debut disc from Australia native Craig Morrison.  His album is full of deep and thoughtful lyrics, guitar riffs and some very fine guitar hooks throughout this disc.  He’s got the vocal chops, the instrumental skills and the confidence.”

Produced by Grammy-nominated record producer Mark Moffatt, “Fences” is Morrison’s debut single release in the U.S.  An accomplished and award-winning artist back home in Australia, the Sydney native moved to Nashville in 2011.  The self-titled project was released May 1 in the States through Morrison’s own Lucky 53s label and Nashville-based digital record label GMV Nashville.

Morrison has been on the road visiting radio stations for the past several weeks in support of “Fences,” which shot into the Top 5 of the Australian Country Tracks chart earlier this year. 

“I’m doing as many radio tours as I can right now, which I think is very important,” Morrison told Country website Nashville Love last month during CMA Music Festival.  “I want people to get to know me, then they can understand my music more as well.  I just want to have that opportunity to get out and meet people.”

In 2012, Morrison became a volunteer artist with the Nashville branch of Musicians On Call, a national, non-profit organization that provides musical entertainment to patients in local hospital facilities.

A Toyota StarMaker finalist in 2010, Morrison was chosen as Male Artist of the Year at the 2012 Central Coast Country Music Festival.  His “Hot Kinda Love” single was named Country Song of the Year at the 2011 Australian Songwriter’s Awards and is also included on the singer’s new album.  Morrison is the son of renowned Australian artist Lucky Starr, widely regarded as a founding member of Australian Pop music and the first to record “I’ve Been Everywhere” and make it a No. 1 hit on the Australian charts.

Craig Morrison is available now at iTunes, Amazon.com, GMVNashville.com and major digital music retailers.  For more information about Craig Morrison, visit www.CraigMorrisonMusic.com.
