Morganway are a six-piece from East Anglia founded by twin brothers Callum (vocals, guitar, bass) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar, backing vocals). Throughout their early years the boys played in various bands but struggled to find a box to fit into. Too rock for folk, too pop for indie, too indie for country, or so it seemed. Choosing to follow their instincts rather than convention, they became Morganway and suddenly people started listening.
Joined by SJ Mortimer (vocals), Nicole Terry (fiddle), Matt Brocklehurst (keys) and Ed Bullinger (drums), the band has developed a sound built on a love for multi-layered vocal harmonies, driven guitar riffs and distinctive fiddle flourishes, bound by raw, honest songwriting. They've built this into a live show that in one moment is classic rock and the next mystical folk, catching the attention of Whispering Bob Harris and many others in the rising British Americana scene. Their collective obsession with ‘70s West Coast rock is also met with a love of Brit Rock, folk and modern Americana.
They have performed at Country 2 Country Festival at The O2 in London to acclaim by reviewers and fans as well as having a number of great festival bookings for this summer including Black Deer, Wood, Leestock, LakeFest Festivals and a number of others.
A storming set opening the second stage at Cambridge Folk Festival in 2018 brought their music to hundreds of new fans and really set the tone for the energy that they bring to concerts.
Debut Album out August 2nd.
"Their blistering set on the Icon Stage certainly drew in the crowds, making them one of the most exciting prospects to appear on the scene since The Wandering Hearts. But whilst The Hearts bring a distinct country flavour to their brand of Americana, Morganway infuse theirs with a whole lot of rock, creating an explosive, sometimes ethereal, sound in the process." - Building Our Own Nashville
"An incredible local band that are making a well-deserved name for themselves in the country music scene" - Norwich Evening News
"The Morganway sound is not easy to define, taking inspiration from many sources yet remaining to be refreshing and unique" - W21Music
