EDITORS’ NOTES

Carla Morrison doesn’t hang around the surface. On her second indie-pop album, introspection reigns. First she plunges into her feelings, then pulls up to soar over delicate sonic textures crafted by producer Natalia Lafourcade. Morrison doesn’t need crazy props to elicit emotion—tender, piano-backed lullabies (“Compartir”) and naked ballads wrapped in nothing but a ukulele (“Este Momento”) do the trick. Next to an actual harp, her voice gets you as close to heaven as is humanly possible.

About Carla Morrison

Raised on a diet of Patsy Cline and José Alfredo Jiménez in Tecate, Baja, California, Latin Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/indie pop singer Carla Morrison played in numerous rock bands before striking out on her own in 2009 with her debut EP Aprendiendo a Aprender. A deluxe edition of the EP followed one year later, along with her debut full-length Mientras Tú Dormías..., produced by Natalia Lafourcade. Another EP, Jugando en Serio, appeared in 2011, leading the way for her second studio album, Déjenme Llorar, in 2012. The album went gold in Mexico, and earned a pair of Latin Grammys. The inevitable deluxe edition of Déjenme Llorar was released in 2014, and Morrison debuted a new single in September 2015, "Un Beso," in anticipation of the release of her third studio long-player, Amor Supremo, later that October. Amor Supremo Desnudo, an all-acoustic version of her prior outing, followed in 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger
