In 2012, she released a self-titled, alternative country EP produced by Pinto Bennett. In 2014, she released “Dancing Through Medbury” a full length collection of original folk songs highlighting her rural roots & incorporating hints of old time country-blues and western.

Morrison is also a Speaker for the Idaho Humanities Council’s, Speakers Bureau. She presents stories and songs programs including “Historical Idaho Women Stories & Folksongs”, “Country Ballads and Early Blues” and “American Folkmusic Revival”.

“Doing no-frills traditional country is tougher than it sounds. Many times, musicians who try come off as staid, corny, self-important or reclusive. With her indelible melodies, warm voice and spare, winningly plain-spoken lyrics, Pinto Bennett protégé Tracy Morrison gets it just right.”
