Daje Morris is a singer-songwriter and poet based in Knoxville, TN.
She's a wandering poet, and a truth-telling, story-seeking singer-songwriter. She is often found toeing the lines between introversion, extroversion, and shamelessness. She is deeply devoted to exposing beauty in all of its messy and inarticulate forms.

"Rhythm N’ Blooms is a festival that’s just as much about the city of Knoxville as it is about music. That’s not to say it lacks premiere music or a premium listening environment, but It blends a top-notch music festival experience with the identity and spirit of our rich East Tennessee history. Knoxville’s story has always been set to music. Rhythm N’ Blooms highlights that soundtrack and celebrates the crossroads of this city’s varied music history.
Whether the music is nationally known or local favorites, Rhythm N’ Blooms only showcases the most preeminent artists.
With the Great Smoky Mountains as our backdrop and The Historic Old City as our stage, we create a unique theater-like experience set in our city that is sure to deliver a music festival experience that cannot be found anywhere else."

Now that it's coming to the end of another year, how about we all come together to celebrate the holidays?!? We'll have a multitude of musicians performing their own, special take on holiday and Christmas tunes at The Central Collective in North Knoxville. They'll be performing "in-the-round" style, playing with others they may never have performed with together before!
Not only will it be a wonderful evening of music, but we'll also be giving all of the proceeds to help The Love Kitchen here in Knoxville. They have been working hard in order to help the folks of our community. We'll even have some baked goods available for purchase to help raise as much as we can. Now's our chance to give back!

2. we're praying that the Lord will use the work of our hands and your love of quality pastries and good music to get our friend's car from the wrecker!

Thankful to the Lord to share this journey with strangers and friends. Alexis and I met at a worship gathering that I had originally planned on not going to because I felt burnt out and tired of "worship gatherings" that might be more performance than worship of our King. That night was--indescribable. That night we found ourselves sitting next to the Tennessee River, about six of us, and we prayed to the Lord and worshipped him in excess--hours after the event was done. We encountered Him like well-loved children, and he met us with love.
Come join us this time!
An intimate night of worship through music and poetry.
