With a painter's eye for detail Matthew Morgan sketches his sonic canvas combining his lyric tenor voice with evocative tales that stem from the heart. He skillfully weaves together glimmers of American folk, country, rock and blues to create a unique sound that is sophisticated and poignantly contemporary while remaining firmly rooted in acoustic tradition. With a keen social insight and poetic skills his stories conjure tales of courage in the face of adversity merging his own life experiences with historical footnotes. Matthew grew up in Ohio where he attended music school, majoring in vocal performance. With this strong musical background he quickly realized that his passion for music was more than just singing. So, he set out to discover his true voice as a singer/songwriter. Matthew's debut CD “Red Silhouettes” is a tour de force in “Do It Yourself” recording. Entirely self produced and engineered he performs nearly every instrument himself with a few notable musicians and friends adding exuberance to the mix. Featured guest musicians on the CD include Kurt Baumer and the irrepressible duo of Anita Chase and Sheela Reddy of the Chicago-based rock band ½ Mad Poet. Kurt is a former Nashville fiddler who has toured with groups including Lonestar, Ricky Lynn Gregg and Brett James, while ½ Mad Poet has performed at Lilith Fair and shared the stage with bands as diverse as Joan Jett, Sugar Ray, and Smash Mouth.
