New York-based singer/songwriter Kendra Morris is gearing up for the release of her debut album, “Banshee.”
The record of all-original material is due August 28.
Morris has been sharing covers of songs each week, including versions of tracks by Pink Floyd and Chris Isaak.
Her latest cover is Metallica's "Ride the Lightning," produced by Jeremy Page.
While performing solo around New York City, Morris met and began collaborating with producer Page and released a self-titled EP in 2010.
She’d been conscientiously working on her craft as a songwriter, which was acknowledged by ASCAP and the Songwriters Hall of Fame the following year. The institutions awarded Morris the 2011 Holly Prize, which recognizes new singer-songwriters whose talents honor the legacy of Buddy Holly by way of excellence in songwriting, performing, and musicianship.
