My Interview with Joseph Morris:
Q:When did you first start singing?
A;: I was about 5/6 years old, and never looked back really!
Q: Why did you first start writing?
A: It was more of a coping mechanism to put my feelings down in the best way i could express them, and it still is even today, so i hope the honest and sincerity comes across in my music.
Q:Did your family encourage you, and what did they do to encourage you?
A: They’ve always been wonderful, few words but all encouraging!
Q: Who are your music inspirations?
A: I don’t want these answers to sound cliched but people like Michael Jackson, who was a huge icon, others like WHAM, The beetles…
I guess today’s inspirations for the music i like to listen to and write, would be guys like Ed Sheeran, James Arthur (Who Joseph recently performed at the same show as James Arthur), I love Boyz To Men – such great voices!
Q:What kind of music do you listen to?
A; Again such a cliched answer potentially but I have a range of taste, going from some conventional pop t more RnB, soul, it varies.
Q:Where would you most like to perform?
A: It’s every musicians dream to play around the world, venues like Wembley,, Maddison Square Garden in America- who wouldn’t want to sell that out and perform.
Q: Who would you most likely to perform with?
A: I’d love to perform/collaborate with James Arthur.
Q:If you wasn’t singing, what would you be doing now?
A: Music runs through my blood, I will always want to create sound so perhaps studio engineering/producing, still could be a side project.
Q:Do you enjoy music and singing?
A: Without a doubt Yes.
Q:What kind of vibe were you going for when writing ‘This is my truth’?
A: As the title indicates- the truth, honest lyrics and relatable content.
Q:What can we hear from you in the future?
A: I will be releasing “This Is My Truth” as my 1st single (Date to be confirmed), followed by an album/Ep this next year.
Q:What are you most looking forward to in 2016?:
A: The journey, the creation of my sound, I’m very much looking forward to seeing the reaction to my single!
Q:What is the genre of this is my truth?
A: You’ll have to wait and see on that.
Q: What was the message behind the single?:
A:The best way to describe the song, is by simply saying, it’s reality.
And finally a message from you to the fans:
A: And a massive thank you for everyone supporting me, the wait for this music I promise will be worth the wait
So watch this space guys, Joseph is going to be doing amazing things!!!
