About Sarah Morris

Hello!

My name is Sarah Morris!  I'm a Minnesota-based singer-songwriter (also Mama/bread-maker/crime show enthusiast/dream-chaser).

For the last 5 years I have been writing songs and posting videos of these brand new songs in their most raw state to Facebook and YouTube.  Most of these songs have been written as part of a prompt-based writing group, but some have been strikes of inspiration that I felt like sharing.  Some of these songs have been recorded on my last two albums, Ordinary Things (2015) and Hearts in Need of a Little Repair (2017).  Some of these songs have won fancy awards (Kerrville New Folk 2018! Yay!).  Some of these songs have hopefully touched your heart in some way and that's why you're here! (that's my favorite)

I've done this long enough that if you were to go onto Facebook or YouTube you would see over 100 #brandnewbabysongs!  Back in 2016, I started recording my song demos in my bathroom because 1) there were two locked doors separating me from my sweet children who want snacks 2) the acoustics are awesome and 3) my husband painted it my favorite shade of bright green, and we all look pretty decent against a jewel tone, you know?

People seemed to be intrigued by this singing in the bathroom thing because soon I had requests from other musicians to COME AND SING IN MY BATHROOM!  WHAT?   And because of this - Toilet Tunes was born!  Toilet Tunes - where I invite fellow musicians to come and sing a cover song of their choosing in my #biggreenbathroom. Toilet Tunes has been a huge heart-filler for me because it's given me a chance to collaborate with so many different artists, and because it seems  to bring the people who watch the videos a little happiness.  AH!  That is such a wonderful thing.  Joy is the best kind of contagious!

With all this songwriting I've been doing, I'm getting ready to go into the studio in June to record my 5th album!!!!!  (Tentatively titled, All Mine).

In planning for this album it occurred to me how much I've enjoyed the way my creative process has developed over the years where I feel like I am writing these songs FOR YOU.  The YOU who comments on my video that 'it was just what you needed to hear', the YOU who has come to see me play at bars, brunches, breweries, and theaters.  The YOU who meets me out and about and says "I love to watch you in your bathroom" (and I don't even think twice about that comment!).  I want to make this arrangement a little more official.  I want to write and release some material just for YOU the subscriber.

When we go into the studio, some songs won't make the album, but I'll still want to share them with you.  Or maybe after a Toilet Tune, a guest will record a bonus Toilet Tune and I'll want to share it with you.  Or maybe it's September and I need to write a song and so I turn to y'all for a prompt and then I want to share it with you! 

In the past I have crowd-funded albums, and it has been both scary and also really magical.   This is a bit like that, but the difference is this - because of the continuing nature of your subscription, I can offer you exclusive music on a monthly basis.  Songs or videos that I only share with subscribers.  Singles released to you before anyone else.  You know - once an album is released, anyone can buy it (yay! I love that) or stream it for free (yay, I want people to hear the album), but with Patreon, the songs and videos keep coming!

I'm so excited about the idea of creating a community here.  Patreon allows the artist to work toward a sustainable income, while also cutting out a bit of the middle man - on other social media and music platforms, much of what a follower sees is determined by ye olde algorithm.  With Patreon I am able to share EVERYTHING directly to you!  

I subscribe to things I love that I want to keep going - PBS, NPR, other artists, my meditation app, NETFLIX - and it would mean the world to me to be a part of that situation for you!  But here's my thing - if you've read all of this and feel kinda 'meh' - don't subscribe.   Or wait.  There are other ways to support me (come to shows, bring your friends to shows, buy CDs, stream me for 24 hours straight on your favorite streaming site).  In my own life, I've been working to operate under this principle: If it's not a HELL YES, then it's a NO!  And I encourage you to do that here.  I want you to subscribe if you've read this entire wayyyyyy too long pitch and you are saying HELL YES!  MORE SARAH!  

Thank you!  For your consideration, and for your support in any and all ways.

Big Love,
Sarah

  • You can stop or start your subscription at any time!
  • You will be charged upon becoming a subscriber, and then on the first of every month!
  • After fees, roughly 90% of your dollar(s) goes directly toward the costs of me making new recorded music.  Nothing else.  Just to making music!
  • I might release more than one song to you per month, but you are still charged only once per month.

Cover song recording!  I'll go into the studio with the band to record one of the covers we've been doing for years OR something from the Toilet Tunes archives!  I'll want your help in deciding which song, so we'll put that up to Patron vote!
