Jon Morris Back From Nashville

By Jennie McKeon

After recording his first professional album in Nashville, Tenn. in March, Jon Morris is ready to serenade the local coffee houses again.

Morris has been playing music for eight years. What started out as a casual hobby – playing along with friends, has turned into a dream job.

“It was when I started writing songs that I thought I could do this for a living,” he said. “Now, I have more of a drive to make a career or sustenance out of making music. It’s my dream.”

Morris’ day job is a language arts teacher at a local middle school, but being settled with a job and a wife hasn’t made him stop dreaming big. Just last October, Morris signed up for a Kickstarter account to help fund his four-day recording session in Nashville, Tenn. He was astounded when 70 backers showed their support by donating a collective $6,030. One aspect of Morris’ dreams will be realized when his CD releases in early June.
