Terrell Morris, known among friends as “City”, is a lyricist turned singer hailing from the west end of Toronto. Making marks on the scene with his smooth vocals and poetic lyrics, Terrell has found his own wave in the midst of Toronto’s new world order.

Following a brief hiatus a few years ago, City returned to the scene with producer duo Free n Losh. After teaming up for The Right Song on the duo’s 5th & Ghost EP, they discovered a new unprecedented sound that they were eager to build on.

Releasing a joint LP with Free n Losh (Molasses, 2018) to much praise and success, Terrell continues to pave his own path in uncharted territory. Gaining growing recognition as one of the brightest young performers out of the city, Terrell intends to take his show to a bigger stage and have his name ring out across the world.
