Description

MORGANWAY live in Bristol

East Anglian rock / Americana collective Morganway released their debut self-titled album on August 2nd 2019, and are playing a selection of tour dates around the UK in support of the album.

Morganway was founded in 2016 by twin brothers Callum (vocals/bass) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar), and genre-defying keyboard player Matt Brocklehurst. Their numbers quickly grew as their sound developed, with singer SJ Mortimer, whose growling vocals were a perfect complement to the Morgan brothers gritty guitar work, and fiddle player Nicole J Terry joining the ranks. The last member to officially join was drummer Ed Bullinger, whose diverse playing adds an urgent, yet tactful texture to the fray.

Inspired by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac and other classic guitar bands such as The Eagles, Morganway have quickly built a name for themselves on the UK live circuit. They have already received accolades from Radio 2’s ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, swathes of recognition from the country press, two nominations from the BCMA awards, support slots with The Shires, CC Smugglers, Wildwood Kin and an Under The Apple Tree session, slots at Cambridge Folk Festival, Black Deer, Wood Festival, Country 2 Country, The Lovefields @ Glastonbury and Lakefest.

Peppered within their classic rock influences are aspects of country, Americana, pop and even bits of indie. Their ability to dance around genres yet keep a cohesive sound has been one of the principal reasons Morganway have such a captivating live show. Fans are taken on a journey through vastly dynamic soundscapes at their concerts.

Bolstering the sextet’s superb arrangements are vocals that deliver depth and character barely heard these days. Three part harmonies are the band’s bread and butter, and at times everyone chips in to support SJ and Callum’s masterfully crafted melodies. Lyrics on the other hand are less conspicuous, in that the band prefer to leave their interpretation up to the listener.

Currently touring across the UK, Morganway play a selection of venues and festivals in 2019, with a 2020 headlining tour currently being booked.

Their incendiary live shows have been blowing attendees away, and it’s hard not to come away a Morganway convert once you’ve seen what people are describing as "One of the best and most exciting prospects to emerge in a long time." – Maverick Magazine –

"A six-piece, superbly talented collective... Morganway’s intoxicating mix of Americana and all its contributing influences takes the breath away." – Rock’n’Reel – ★★★★

"The key thing that strikes on the album is the level of musicianship… Morganway have it all" – Maverick Magazine – ★★★★★

Reviews from Country 2 Country 2019

"Their blistering set on the Icon Stage certainly drew in the crowds, making them one of the most exciting prospects to appear on the scene since The Wandering Hearts." Gaz Williams

Review from Black Deer 2019

"Morganway demonstrated real crossover appeal and have a sound that should appeal to classic rock, pop and Americana fans. A great show from a band who should go far." Red Guitar Music
