MEEKER PRESS & BIOGRAPHY
In the year 2000, Tom E Morrison created a tour de force called Meeker, featuring Rachel Morrison on vocals. The first 3 singles (Save Me, Mountains, Let's come together) were signed to independent UK Label
Underwater, hit the top 5 of the UK Dance Charts and were played extensively on mainstream radio. These tracks were also compiled
on Platinum selling Albums worldwide.
Touring UK Universities, Clubs and Major Festivals in the same line up with bands
like Moby, Underworld, Primal Scream, Meeker won over crowds wherever they played.
"...they are poised for even greater greatness. Fusing traditional song values and sinuous, charged soul vocals with breaktech house "Mountains" adds a dash of personality to a particularly faceless scene."
"Tom's bluesy guitar snakes beautifully around Rachel's gospelized vocal over Underworld-esque beats - One to watch for the millennium."
As the late nineties dance scene waned, Tom got back into the studio to produce a more widescreen sound that has been enthusiastically taken up by television and movie producers.
TOM E MORRISON guitarist, songwriter, producer, engineer
Award-winning producer and composer Tom E. Morrison has worked in an eclectic musical arena ranging from mixing and engineering for legendary UK band Underworld, remixing for Puff Daddy, writing and producing with Futureworld Funk UK, to composing and producing for Playstation, TV scores and film trailers.
As a composer he has already worked for such well known movie names as Ken Loach, Jackie Chan (Tuxedo), Rowan Atkinson (Johnny English), William H Macey (The Cooler), Dirty Sanchez (Dirty Sanchez, The Movie) and provided music for the award-winning British feature London to Brighton.
RACHEL MORRISON singer/songwriter
Enjoying chart success in Europe and Brazil in the early nineties, Rachel's band Bliss were refreshingly genuine at a time when authenticity
in the music business was in short supply. Recently re-formed, their new album has been produced by Tom and new single Mercy is featured in the new movie Sparkle, released in August and starring Bob Hoskins.
EMI have also re-issued the Bliss back catalogue in digital format over iTunes and other download sites.
The excitement and intensity of her live performances earned
prestigious support slots with such highly acclaimed artists as the Gypsy Kings, The Neville Brothers, Van Morrison, Paul Simon, and Chris Isaac.
"Rachel Morrison is grandiose! Blonde, pale and spellbinding this
fragile English woman possesses the voice that can break down
barriers...the highs and lows of human emotions..."
"Morrison's swoon-and-croon of a voice sounds like it's truly testified to the
blues of soul and the soul of gospel."
Q magazine London
Her voice is deeply rooted in influences ranging from Van Morrison, to Grace Slick
to Nina Simone...
