An extract from Lena Morris’s first album ‘New Blood’ (due for release in March 2021), ’Little Bird’ is an upbeat girl power rock, fuelled by Morris’s first collaboration with French rock producer/drummer Jerome Levasseur.
As usual in Morris’s songs, this song relates to a modern social topic. This time the young lady delivers her views about women’s sexual emancipation and ownership, in a bluntly explicit statement.
The song started during a jam session, with guitarist Lou Bell coming up with a riff that Morris later decided to turn into a song. The lyrics came to her naturally as she wrote them in the context of the feminist ‘Metoo’ campaign.
‘Little Bird’ is Lena Morris’s first resolutely rock single and a nice interesting curve in her musicianship. Her previous ‘Never (Is An Awfully Long Time)’ was 100% Blues-Rock, a musical style she has been identified with since 2017 and the release of ‘Secretly Jacked’.
Lena Morris is a French (of Armenian/Russian descent) Blues-Rock singer-songwriter and bass player, raised in Hong Kong and based in Brighton (UK).
Lena Morris mixes Blues, Rock, Soul and Jazz. Her authentic music and gravelly voice are well suited to her lyrics with social and political views. Massively influenced by The Beatles, Queen and David Bowie, Lena Morris adds a special ingredient to her blues in the English scene: a hint of French accent.
