Artist of the Day: Darryl Morris Re-releases a Thought-Provoking Sound “My Name”


We wanted to take a moment today to flash back to a song that was released on Youtube over 10 years ago. It’s called “My Name” by a courageous singer-songwriter Darryl Morris. The song that was originally released in 2007 has been released again this past June. It’s a song that brings awareness to growing up without a father, growing up impoverished, and growing up oppressed. Even though the honest song has really sad lyrical and musical moments, there is a sense of hope in the song. Darryl Morris comes off as a grateful man, appreciating the opportunities and experiences he has had, and speaks about continuing to move on and climb up the ladder. This is Darryl Morris first public release since uploading the music video in 2007. Enjoy!
