Sarah Morris describes her forthcoming (it’s out tomorrow!) album, ‘Here’s To You,’ as a collection of gift songs. Written to family and friends, these songs have us eavesdropping on an intimate conversation.  ‘Longest Night’ waxes nostalgic about an evening with two friends before an accident, an illness and a pandemic change the world forever.

Here’s To You’ is acclaimed Minneapolis Americana artist Sarah Morris’ fifth album, and was recorded in two sessions in 2021 and 2022.  Produced by multi-instrumentalist Dave Mehling, and featuring long-time bandmates Thomas Nordlund, Andrew Foreman, and Lars-Erik Larson, ‘Here’s To You‘ sees Morris explore a more lush, celestial flavor as she sheds some of the country swagger she’s known for. With layers of harmonies and synths orbiting the terra firma of her band’s guitar, bass, and drums, Morris’ clarion voice shines brightly.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
