Eliot Morris (born in Mobile) is a singer-songwriter currently based in Birmingham.

Morris grew up in a family of eight in Mobile. He earned a bachelor's degree in finance from Auburn University in 1999. While there he started writing and performing his own songs. In 1995 he recorded over 80 tracks with Servier Productions. Their third limited release brought attention from record distributors and his music caught the ear of Gary Gersh, who signed him to Strummer Records, a subsidiary of Universal Music. His major label debut was self-titled album released in 2002. The track "No One Has to Know" was included on the Joe Muggs' Coffee House CD Volume 1 in 2003.

Morris began recording his What's Yours Is Mine album in October 2004. Soon later Strummer fell victim to a reorganization at Universal. With the record project sidelines, Morris went on the road, opening for John Mayer, Counting Crows and James Taylor among others. The new record What's Mine is Yours was eventually released on August 15, 2006 in Universal Motown. The single "This Colorful World" gained wide exposure in a television commercial for Crayola crayons.
