George Morris and the Gypsy Chorus
Welcome back, Detroit Proud music fans, to this week’s edition of the Detroit Proud Playlist. We’ve done something special this week, featuring only a set of songs from one album. Why only one album, you ask? Well, this isn’t your typical album – it’s 40 Detroit artists collaborating in 10 groups to make 10 original songs…all about Detroit. Needless to say, it has more than sparked our interest…
Week after week we’re committed to searching, listening, and bringing you the best of what our city has to offer…in terms of music, that is. This week, in our playlist,we’ve brought in a few new names, sprinkled in some well-known favorites, and explored other tracks from local bands we’ve seen before.
From old favorites with new-releases, to brand new artists…we’ve compiled a list set to start off anyone’s New Year right.
This week’s Detroit Proud playlist is a flashback to this past weekend’s Fallout Fest 2013 – Detroit’s newest music festival featuring an eclectic set list of some of Detroit’s best! Our playlist is jam-packed with some of the highlights from the night…So, in case you missed the Fest this past Saturday – or if you just want it on repeat – this playlist is for you!
“I think you can be inspired by anything.” George Morris has been writing music since he was in high school, first in a style known as “bedroom pop.” Why? Well, he would write and record it all in his bedroom, all on his own. “Everyday interactions, books,” George says. He pulls inspiration from everything around him. He jokes “even romantic comedies. You just have to keep your eyes open.”
