About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

  1. “Morley’s sound has always been large. Even with just a simple guitar and her elegant voice, the Queens, NY native has consistently conjured music that can barely be contained in the room that attempts to house it. The reasons are numerous: smart production, intelligent songwriting and — especially in Morley’s case — poetry disguised as lyrics that immediately resonates with heartfelt conviction.

    Social consciousness has always been woven into her songs, and Undivided is no different. She has the uncanny ability to make you feel good about yourself and life without you realizing that you’re feeling good about these things. It’s just the instantaneous contact that happens inside your headphones: “Be the One,” “On My Way” and the soulful “Thank You,” featuring the inimitable Raul Midon, offer hope and light in a time when our political system has none to champion. The keyword here is community, something Morley is expert at creating, be it through her hospice work or teaching yoga in prisons. Yet none of her music is sacrificed for a message, as sometimes happens with troubadours so intent on a message that they miss the music. In Morley, all factors are stitched together beautifully, undivided and complete.”
