UK newcomers Morganway are set to release their debut album in the summer of 2019. The first taste of what to expect from the band is available now via their excellent single ‘Frozen In Our Time’. Inspired by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles the band bring a dash of classic 70s rock to their take on Americana. Morganway are going to be busy this year touring in the UK with many dates already on the books and additional shows will be added along the way. More about Morganway, those tour dates and the video for ‘Frozen In Our Time’ follows:
East Anglian rock/ Americana collective Morganway announce their first official single ‘Frozen In Our Time’ along with a selection of concerts and festivals across the UK. The single is a first listen at what to expect from their upcoming debut album, due summer 2019.
Founded by twin brothers Callum (vocals/guitar) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar), and 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. With accolades from Whispering Bob Harris, two nominations from the BCMA awards, support slots with The Shires and an Under The Apple Tree session already under their belt, there is no doubt Morganway are heading on a skyward trajectory.
The first single is a perfect introduction to their expansive sound and captivating harmonies that have been wowing audience members. It’s a journey through a musical landscape rarely visited in contemporary music, as the harmony of musicianship, arrangement and overall compatibility of a large group of performers meld flawlessly. As founding member Callum puts it, “I am the main songwriter, although each one of us plays a vital role in the overall sound and experience of Morganway.”
It’s a sentiment that rings especially true when you consider the components that make up Morganway. As three and four piece harmonies complement a classic band set up with additional support from keyboard and fiddle, the 6-piece each bring their own divergent musical upbringings to the mix. Ensembles of this caliber provide something often thought to be a thing of the past, as the whole is most certainly greater than the sum of all parts. Together under the leadership of the Morgan brothers, Morganway stands as one of the most formidable live and studio acts of the past decade.
Standing beside Kieran and Callum Morgan are violin maker and former circus performer Nicole J Terry (fiddle/ vocals), longtime musical collaborator and lead vocalist on ‘Frozen In Our Time’ SJ Mortimer (vocals), part time DJ and genre-defying keyboard player Matt Brocklehurst, and rhythm keeper Ed Bullinger (drums).
