Shellie Morris - Simple Things

Shellie Morris - Simple Things
Shellie Morris is one of Australia’s finest Indigenous singer songwriters.

Her song Li-Anthawirriyarra A-Kurija (Saltwater People Song) sung with her aunties and grandmothers, the Borroloola Songwomen, is the 2013 winner of the National Indigenous Music Award Song of the Year.

The album, Ngambala Wiji Li-Wunungu (Together We Are Strong) was a 2013 ARIA finalist following its release by ABC/Universal in June 2013.

Shellie won a 2013 Deadly Award for Cultural Advancement in 2013 and the GR Burarrawanga Memorial Award at the 2013 NIMAs for her work in remote communities over more than 15 years.

As a featured singer with award-winning Black Arm Band, her collaborations with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, as well as her intimate shows, she has shared her life and stories to delighted audiences.
Shellie grew up in Sydney and reconnected with her family in Northern Territory 15 years ago with the encouragement and support of her adopted family.

Since then she has worked with over 40 different communities, performing singer-songwriter workshops and learning different languages and styles.

Firmly rooted in community and sharing her songs of life, Shellie has been a huge inspiration and role model for Indigenous musicians.
