Tim Morrison new EP is Weight

Tim Morrison says it was a heavy day when he realized that "life is short and death is long." Once he realized as much, Morrison decided to leave a corporate career in Manhattan and turn to a life of music.

Morrison says his songs have been described as "David Gray channeling Jeff Buckley while covering Queen at an Eels concert." They are soaring tales filled with questions, hope, pragmatic defeatism and romantic promises.

Morrison writes, records and performs all the tracks himself and says he's becoming more confident as a songwriter. "You can't deliver the emotion if you don't believe the message," Morrison said.
