Andrew Maxwell Morris

Meet Andrew Maxwell Morris, a singer-songwriter and composer, a full time criminal lawyer and a well travelled soul. Andrew has just released his debut album “Well Tread Roads”. It is a project that explores the highs and lows of creating music with the demands of a full time job, giving up evenings and weekends and being dedicated to the task. The album was written and arranged in Andrew’s bedroom. It was taken on, mixed and post produced by Jordan Critz, in Dallas, Texas.

Andrew was born in Melbourne, Australia. His love for music began age 5, placed at a piano and brought into the world of traditional folk music. He wrote his first song at 12, taught himself the drums and guitar when he was 13. Songwriting always came easy. He developed a love of 7O’s Laurel Canyon artists, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Eagles and later a fascination with Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen.

“Well Tread Roads” explores depression, a longing for family and a desire to carve out his own path through the title song, “Well Tread Roads”. It is a rollercoaster of driving pop-folk and acoustic songs, each with its own identity. As well as his album and two EP’s, Andrew has had success with music placements in TV adverts for two major brands, ‘Thatcher’s Cider’ and ‘Vodafone’. He has written for production music companies and films around the world.
