ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gritty. Passionate. Idealistic. Intense. These are only a few of the words people have used to describe \"Chasing Miracles.\" Sam Morris, despite a serious setback, strives to live life with no limits, and his work fully expresses this attitude! These five powerful and distinctly different songs encourage the listener to transcend problems and find one\'s inner power.

The title track, \"Chasing Miracles,\" is a rock anthem about following one\'s intuition on a journey against the odds. Its driving groove and soaring melody deliver a personal challenge to overcome any obstacle and see a dream all the way to the finish line.

\"I Pray,\" reflects upon the disappointments Morris has seen in himself and the world as he seeks the determination to not give in and to rise above them. Its gospel-country-rock feel recalls the mixture of pathos and hope heard in 70s artists such as Jackson Browne and The Band.

\"I\'m Cryin\' Too\" is an intimate, classic, bluesy torch song that expresses an attempt to sooth the emotions of an upset lover. This sparse, piano-laden song pays homage to the styles of Mark Knopfler and Billy Joel.

\"American Dream\" is a social commentary about those who have let their obstacles defeat them and settled for lives of quiet desperation. The mournful lap steel guitar underlines this theme of resignation.

In \"Got a Reason,\" Morris attempts to shed the dark feelings of his past by finding a renewed vision and passion for life. The dramatic contrast between the verse and chorus reflect the eternal conflict between dark and light.

Morris\' deep classic rock and blues sensibility expertly fuses seemingly different influences into a provocative stew. This deeply introspective CD is not for the weak of heart!

Sam Morris is the singer, songwriter and guitar player. In the Fall of 1999, Morris, then a 24-year-old athlete and musician, had his life change in an instant. Only two months after leading a 4,000 mile bicycling tour for a group of teenagers, he was paralyzed from the waist down in a car accident caused by a drunk driver. His music is a testimony to his healing process.

Morris is donating 10% of the sales of \"Chasing Miracles\" to Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization that provides programs and services to seriously wounded veterans.
