Artist Profile: Young Morrie
My real name is Ralph Giralao also known as "YOUNG MORRIE". I am a singer, rapper, songwriter and drummer. But I prefer writing and rapping over the other stuff.
I am currently working with Mr. Sandro Dominelli, a composer/music teacher/drummer/producer. Sandro has received rave reviews and accolades for his work. His first recording as band leader - Cafe Varze Jazz - went on to receive top honours at the Western Canadian Music Awards as Outstanding Jazz Recording of the Year and was also nominated in 2004 for a JUNO in the 'Best Traditional Jazz Album of the Year' category. Sandro's follow-up album - Meet Me in the Alley - brought him more success including a Canadian Music Week award for 'Favorite Jazz Artist of the Year'.
I have two albums on iTunes which are Flight '11 and Peripeteia (available only in North America), both recorded and mastered in St. Albert at Sandro Dominelli's studio.
