BIO: Since early 2012, Matt Morgan has been pouring his energy and soul into music, sharing the stories and sounds of his heart with the world. Born in New Mexico, and currently based out of Las Vegas, Nevada, Morgan is an Americana singer/songwriter that evokes the truest emotions and is as vulnerable and honest as they come in his music. He says, “I can’t recall ever wanting to be a rockstar or a famous musician, I just needed an outlet for my heart to express itself, and writing songs and music has been the only way I know how ever since I was a little kid.” Matt had his start in his hometown of Las Cruces, New Mexico, by attending local open mic nights, but his passion and drive for music continually take him further. Over the past couple years, Morgan has shared the stage with Brett Young, Lee Brice, Montgomery Gentry, Gavin DeGraw, Darryl Worley, Love & Theft, Chase Bryant, Aaron Watson, 3 Doors Down and Tyler Ward among others. He says “I’ve been blessed to be able to tour across the United States, as well as perform consistently around the Southwest. His latest single, The Rest, was recorded at Rivergate studios in Nashville and is available everywhere. His musical influences include artists and songwriters such as Damien Rice, Nanci Griffith, Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Tracy Chapman, James Taylor, John Prine, Ben Howard and Kacey Musgraves to name a few. Throughout Matt Morgan’s life, his heart and soul have been deeply impacted by the music of these artists, and his hope is that his music might have the same effect on someone else one day.
