Matt Morris' Debut Album When Everything Breaks Open Lands On The Top 10

In its second week of release, musician Matt Morris' debut release When Everything Breaks Open has catapulted into the iTunes and Amazon Top 10 album sales charts. Music fans are reacting to his triumphant appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, CBS Second Cup Cafe and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. For Ellen, Matt was joined by a very special appearance from the album's co-producers, Justin Timberlake and Charlie Sexton.
The critical acclaim continues to pour in for When Everything Breaks Open. American Songwriter Magazine calls the album "Phenomenal...[Matt Morris] is a soulful singer and richly expressive...songwriter." Relix Magazine says Matt is an artist “on the verge”, and BlackBook declares, “[Matt Morris is] a name you're about to know.” “If you're interested in hearing some modern pop music that has some meat on its bones and some substance in its soul,” says The Buffalo News, “Morris is your man.”
When Everything Breaks Open is available on iTunes and The album of original songs is a sonic tour de force that contains elements of rock, soul, pop and folk music and displays Matt's uncanny ability to connect with audiences, not only through passionate live performances, but also as a recording artist.

Matt Morris began his musical career at age seven when he joined his father, Broadway and country music star Gary Morris, onstage to perform "Blue Suede Shoes" to a crowd of 15,000. Stage-savvy since an early age, Matt was cast as a member of “The All New Mickey Mouse Club” from 1991-1995 and has written songs for Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire and Justin Timberlake. He signed to Justin Timberlake's Tennman Records label and has toured with Grammy award winners The Indigo Girls and Joan Osborne as well as performed at The Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits Music Festivals.
