Southern Halo’s Nata and Tinka Morris.

Mississippi-born sibling music group Southern Halo has now transitioned from a trio to a duo, following the exit of former member Hannah Morris. Tinka and Nata Morris will continue on as a duo, with Cliff Downs producing their music.

“We love and respect each other so much,” notes Nata Morris, lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter for the group. “When Hannah decided she wanted to pursue her education and her passion for Interior Design, Tinka and I celebrated with her and re-dedicated ourselves to our passion, which is music.”

Southern Halo released their debut EP in 2014, followed by two full-length albums in 2015 and 2018. Their 2018 project included the singles “Anything Is Possible” and “I Think Too Much,” which each hit the Top 25 on the MusicRow CountryBreakout Radio chart.
