Songs like “We’re Gonna Make It”, “Just Jane”, “Hey Yo T.O.” and “Pashmina Girl” have been released but not to a world wide audience. Morgan’s plans and goals are to attract and gain a bigger audience with the R&B/Soul sound that has been missing in music for the last decade.
“Carlos Morgan” will explain Morgan’s life journey and experiences and the beginning of new self discovery through his love for God …. and in doing so finding himself, the life and love that he never had.
From all the many life challenges, changes and triumphs, the new CD will give insight and light into his life story, which signifies and represents where it all started. Some of the topics Morgan addresses are his vulnerabilities, sensitivities, pain, love, intimacy, fear, guilt, lies and abandonment that has played a large role in Morgan’s life, development and relationships. Having the creative control he desired, Morgan’s vision to fuse the diversity of music genres that inspires him melding them with his R&B signature so there will be no mistake interpreting which genre Morgan calls home.
Using his sizable vocal gifts, arrangements and ability to deliver multi-layered harmonies while utilizing his sing writing and production skills, Morgan will succeed at making “Carlos Morgan” an album with international impact and appeal.
