less than seven years, Kay Morris and the
Jewels, symbolically representing the
spiritual riches found within the band's
soul, have been able to break many
religious, racial, and cultural barriers
with her music. The group's musical material
demonstrates a positive message and is
voiced through Kay's energetic delivery. A
commanding voice which displays a beautiful
balance between soft and reverent whispers
to emotionally charged pleas.
Metaphorically, the music of Kay Morris
& the Jewels is somewhat
"non-denominational" in its style,
yet remains focused and fresh in its
Morris & The Jewels' debut album,
"Live Again" was first released in
Canada in December of 1995 and featured two
original compositions written by Kay.
"Live Again" received quite a bit
of airplay here in Canada as well as
internationally, and is still being played
by a number of radio stations well into the
present. The success of their first album
resulted in the band performing in various
cities across Canada in addition to playing
at various venues within the United States
(New York, Detroit, South Carolina,
Chicago, New Jersey, and Atlanta).
on the group's growing popularity, Kay
Morris & The Jewels were awarded the
1996 Canadian Reggae Music Award in the
"Top Female New Comer" category
during March of 1997. One month later in
April, the group performed on City TV's
popular morning show, "Breakfast
Television" aired in Canada.
beginning of 1999, Kay Morris & The
Jewels released their follow-up CD entitled
"ARMAGEDDON". Despite its
apocalyptic title, the band's album is
fueled even more by Kay's positive spirit:
exclusively she wrote eight out of the nine
tracks found on the CD.
"ARMAGEDDON" has received many
great reviews and has received airplay at a
number of radio stations in Jamaica,
Germany, Australia, Switzerland, Italy, the
U.S., U.K., the Netherlands, France, Sweden,
Spain, Africa, and the Caribbean, as well as
the Summer of 1999, the song "God Can
Turn It Around" was used as part of the
theme song for the "Revival Time T.V.
Ministry, which airs on the AIB Christian
Network in Atlanta, Georgia.
During the Fall of 2000, Kay Morris &
The Jewels released a "Praise &
Worship" song on a compilation CD in
South India, during the same time they
released their hit single "PRAY A
PRAYER FOR ME" in North America.
the group's growing popularity &
fan-base, the "Electrifying" Kay
Morris & The Jewels was awarded the 2000
Canadian Reggae Music Award in the "Top
Female Reggae Gospel Artist" category,
they also put on a stellar performance at
the award show.
With this as an example, the 'branches' of
Kay Morris' music is proof that her message
of a global spirituality is upon us and has
taken root in the hearts and minds of many.
