2015 sees Tom release a trilogy of albums, all with no promotion and available in limited handcut vinyl and CD with individually handprinted sleeves and with unique 35mm photo covers. LOST is available now, with And Now Of That Second Kingdom Will I Sing following in June, and finishing with Newfoundland and the accompanying 8mm short film in December.
Tom is also currently releasing his first serial novel entitled An Unknown Island that includes two albums with overlapping tracks. It concludes in late 2015.
“We Were Animals is confessional, an open statement of private struggles and private sins; it does not hope for redemption or for help—it simply asks to be heard.” – The Bomber Jacket
“At his best, Morris sounds fragile, brooding and melancholic, his voice haunting. Having an impressive vocal range certainly helps, and he uses it to forge an atmosphere of quiet intensity.” – Whisperin and Hollerin
“His mind is fully saturated with ideas, something affirmed by his prodigious output” – GodisintheTV
