    Chris Morrissey is a songwriter, a bassist, a singer, a leo, an uncle, a lover of most cats and some dogs, a New Yorker, a Minnesotan, an avid yoga practicer, a coffee, beer and wine drinker, a restaurant frequenter, and joke teller/appreciator.

    As a bassist, he's logged hundreds of thousands of miles touring five continents with the Jim Campilongo Trio, Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet, Beat Music, Dave King Trucking Company, Margaret Glaspy, Boy George, Ben Kweller, Andrew Bird, Dosh, Mason Jennings, Gretchen Parlato, Trixie Whitley, Rosanne Cash, Matisyahu, Gabriel Kahane, Amy Helm, Tony Scherr and with five-time grammy nominee and multi-platinum selling artist Sara Bareilles, for whom he also acted as music director. In his time in that role, he's shared the stage with Sir Elton John, recorded with Cyndi Lauper, coproduced Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher" for the Oprah Winfrey Network, and penned the arrangement of Charlie Chaplin's "Smile" for the in memoriam segment of The 66th Annual Emmy Awards.

    As a leader, Mr. Morrissey has released four records to high praise: "Laughing and Laughing"(2018), "The Morning World" (2009, Sunnyside), "Cannon Falls Forever" (2011, self release) and "North Hero" (2013, Sunnyside).

    In 2014, he was featured in Bass Player Magazine, joined the adjunct faculty at The New School For Jazz and Contemporary Music and received a residency commission from The Jazz Gallery resulting in the creation of "Standard Candle".

    He performs regularly in New York City and lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in a room that a landlord would call "cozy".
