On July 30th, Wax Poetics Records will release “Mockingbird” the anticipated sophomore long player from rising NYC soul-siren Kendra Morris. Mockingbird finds Morris giving a soul-infused makeover to 14 classic songs that span the past five decades. The first single off the forthcoming LP is the Pink Floyd classic “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” which brought Morris to the fore due to its inclusion in the trailer for the 2013 Colin Farrell film, Dead Man Down. In addition to Pink Floyd, Mockingbird finds Morris and her prolific band—headed by guitarist/producer Jeremy Page—infusing their distinct soul into songs by Radiohead, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Bettye Lavette, Lou Reed, Soundgarden, the Proclaimers, the Beach Boys, Metallica, and more. Listen to Kendra Morris here.
