Americana Songstress Cashavelly Morrison Releases Debut Album 'The Kingdom Belongs To A Child'

Americana singer and songwriter Cashavelly Morrison has released her debut album 'The Kingdom Belongs to a Child'. Combining traditions of Appalachian ballads and melancholic lyrics that deal with her deeply held values, The Kingdom Belongs to a Child is a sorrowful album full of beauty and profundity. Backed up by acoustic guitar melodies played by her husband Ryan MacLeod, Morrison's lyrical voice perfectly delivers the emotional depth of her songs. Digital downloads, CDs, and double vinyls are available here:

As demonstrated in her single releases 'Long-Haired Mare' and 'Pink Dress', which deal with women's and children's rights, The Kingdom Belongs to a Child is about giving a voice to those who are unheard or unseen. The lyrics also draw from Cashavelly's personal experiences through themes of loss, and are laden with imagery inspired by her childhood in a coal mining town in West Virginia. With her music, Cashavelly wants to explore the shared grief and ultimately emphasize compassion, empowerment, and healing.

The album has already garnished positive reviews, with Indie Minded describing it as a "deeply intelligent piece of Americana that represents the universality of human emotion." Indiemunity posited it as an instant folk/country classic, and Famous Last Words characterized it as commendable, and noted that the entire album was played out exquisitely.
