Neil Morris is a Yorta Yorta man, born and raised on Yorta Yorta country around the towns of Shepparton and Mooroopna. He has a very powerful connection to the landscape and his culture. It is central to his being and how he functions in this world and led him to return to Shepparton in 2010 after a number of years away, and to start working on projects, on country and with fellow Yorta Yorta peoples. A musician, who performs as DRMGNOW, Neil regularly performs across a range of venues and festivals. Neil also hosts an incredible program on Triple R called Still Here which showcases some of the best indigenous music on the airwaves. It is a strong passion of Neil’s to provide a platform for non Indigenous people to be exposed to Indigenous culture, and also have an appreciation of this fostered. He has actively pursued this endeavour and has been involved in this through work with organisations like Multicultural Arts Victoria, SheppARTon Festival and more.
