Striking six-part harmonies, energetic rhythms, catchy songs and a fiercely formidable live act – Morganway have made quite the impression on the UK’s rising Americana scene. Part country, part rock, with sprinklings of folk and something else entirely, it’s not easy categorising the band’s “delightfully unconventional sound” (Desperately Lost City).

 

Founded by twin brothers Callum and Kieran Morgan, the shared lead vocals of Callum and SJ Mortimer, along with the band’s love of ‘70s west coast rock, have drawn comparisons to Fleetwood Mac. SJ’s powerhouse voice is at the centre, part-angel, part-banshee, while Nicole Terry’s stomping fiddle creates darker, folkier undercurrents coupled with Kieran’s distinctive guitar sound. Matt Brocklehurst (keys) and ‘Steady’ Eddy (drums) complete the lineup.

 

The band released their self-titled debut album in August 2019 to widespread acclaim. With a summer of festivals including Glastonbury, Black Deer and Millport Country, sell-out shows in London, a national tour with CC Smugglers and praise from Whispering Bob, they were described by Maverick Magazine as “One of the best and most exciting prospects to emerge in a long time.”

 

The Coronavirus pandemic saw the band take stock and focus on writing. However, the live scene is their forte and during lockdown they signed with booking agent Midnight Mango.  As the world opened up the band followed a vibrant festival season with a headline UK tour in the autumn.

 

Capping off a successful year, they won the ‘Best Duo/Group’ at the 2021 British Country Music Awards.

 

With the release of brand new music and their most extensive UK tour yet, 2022 promises to be an even bigger year for Morganway, joining and celebrating the resurgence of a live music scene we've all been waiting for.
