Kevin Morby

The Kansas-born singer-songwriter Kevin Morby first gained prominence as a member of the New York indie bands Woods and The Babies, with whom he played noisy psych folk in the vein of contemporaries like Animal Collective and Fleet Foxes. After 2013, he focused on his solo career, debuting with the album Harlem River that year. With a heavy influence from Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, he amped up the dose of Americana-style earnestness on his following albums, returning from serenading New York (Harlem River) and Los Angeles (Singing Saw) to create languid portraits of his native Midwest. His most recent records, 2022's This Is a Photograph, saw Morby documenting a trip to Memphis and contemplating its faded mythos, making universal points about mortality and nostalgia.
