Born in Eastbourne, England, in 1956, Richard Morgan grew up listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. In 1981, he put away his turntable before going off to study in Canada and he only tokk it out again twenty years later in Switzerland. Discovering himself a singer/songwriter in 2005 was therefore something of a surprise.
A warm voice, melodies that swing, witty lyrics: Richard Morgan's songs remind one of the standards of the Golden Age of jazz.
Also a documentary film-maker (www.invisipics.com)
He has just brought out a new album, 'The Less You Do' (March 2010), available at CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon ....
Englishman Richard Morgan is a published poet and has also been
documentaries for Swiss TV for the past 15 years. Recently, he decided to
embark on his third creative career, writing and singing songs in a
blues/jazz vein. Recently, he released an EP called Letting Go (invisipics).
Morgan wrote all four songs and is accompanied by pianist Leo
The four songs are in the style of ’30s to ’50s jazz/blues and show
to be a talented lyricist with wit, charm, and intellect. “Life’s A Roller
Coaster” is a song of optimism that we can all relate to, about how the
times in life are soon supplanted by good times
