Early life and career beginnings

Maren comes from Arlington, Texas. Her parents, Greg and Kellie Morris, owned a hair salon “Maren Karsen Aveda,” where Maren spent a long time as a child and teenager. She later worked as a front desk clerk and guest coordinator in the salon.

Morris got into singing from a young age. She joined the school choir in elementary school, where she also played soccer and performed in the theater.

Her parents discovered she had a talent for singing when she was 9, during a barbeque party at their salon, in which Maren sang karaoke. Her father encouraged her to perform publicly. Her first performance was at the country music revue Johnnie High's.

Maren’s biggest inspirations were LeAnn Rimes, Sheryl Crow, the Spice Girls, and N*SYNC.[2]

Maren signed with the independent label Mozzi Bozzi, under which she released her debut studio album “Walk On” at 15 years old.[3]

Her mother, Kellie, recounted how they had to sell furniture from their home to finance her first album.[4]

Morris’s second album, “All That It Takes,” was released two years later in 2007. She also auditioned for music competition shows such as “American Idol,” “America's Got Talent,” “The Voice,” and “Nashville Star” but was rejected from all of them.

Maren enrolled at the University of North Texas but dropped out after only one semester. In 2011, she released her third album, “Live Wire,” under the same label Mozzi Bozzi.

Her first three albums didn’t get much recognition. However, all that changed when she moved to Nashville, encouraged by her friend Kacey Musgraves, a famous country singer.

She met successful songwriters and producers, including Carla Wallace, founder, and co-owner of Big Yellow Dog Music. Maren signed a contract and started co-writing songs with other established songwriters.
