Jim Morris: Singer-Songwriter, Recording Artist

Jim Morris is perhaps the most popular independent singer-songwriter and recording artist making island-inflected music.  To say he is a Jimmy Buffett clone is not completely accurate.  Although influenced by Jimmy Buffett, Jim Morris was very influenced by singer-songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker and much of his songwriting seem to be lyrical.  He’s a storyteller first and foremost.

This interview was recorded in an empty bar in Key West, Florida several years back.  He told the story behind several of his popular songs and how he came to be the Jim Morris people travel very far to see and hear.
