Alternative soul tunesmith Morgan Bain is a multi award winning songwriter, performer and vocalist whose live performances are talked about long after he leaves the stage and showcase his skills in a fusion of style that is unmistakably his own.
Growing up with parents who had an extensive music collection, along with a close relationship with his Grandmother who spent years as an opera singer and in her eighties still teaches music and directs a Choir, Bain recalls “the house was always filled with music and when I was really young my Nan would teach me a few things on piano and how to project my voice....she has the most beautiful voice, its haunting.” He started learning guitar at 8 from a family friend and penned his first song at the age of 10. “My songs are definitely a way of getting out whatever I’m feeling about different experiences. I love making music that makes people feel something, whatever that feeling is and how they interpret my music is up to them, just as long as they’re feeling something...that’s what’s really important to me.”
The twenty year old multi-instrumentalist seems to be achieving that by continuing to blow audiences away with his talent. With several recordings under his belt produced at The Wastelands with ARIA award winning producer Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe)
This year his music has taken a new direction with him launching his latest single and video ‘Why Don’t You Stay’ self described as an ‘alternative moody soul sound’ and the release saw him hit the road with his band for a successful National Tour, after showcasing his music on the main stage at the prestigious West Coast Blues’n’Roots Festival. ‘Why Don’t You Stay’ spent weeks dominating the AMRAP/AIRIT Top 10 Metro and Regional Charts and has been embraced by radio around the country including high rotation on Double J. “The dark, soul, moody, cinematic sound is probably the most comfortable I’ve been musically and where I’m heading with my next release” he explains.
Winner of multiple W.A. MUSIC INDUSTRY awards, his song writing talents have also been acknowledged on a global level several times reaching final status in the INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING COMPETITION (US), UNSIGNED ONLY (US), JOHN LENNON SONGWRITING COMPETITION (US), INTERNATIONAL ACOUSTIC MUSIC AWARDS (US) and winning the SINGERUNIVERSE “Best Vocalist ” (US).
