MORGANWAY | DAN RAZA | SATURDAY 12 MARCH 2022GUEST LIST FULL | Doors 19:00 | Live 19:30 | Finish 10:45
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, has 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.
They released their self-titled debut album in August 2019 to widespread acclaim. With a summer of festivals including Glastonbury, Black Deer and Millport Country festival, sell-out shows in London, a national tour with CC Smugglers and a British Country Music Award Nomination for UK Band of the Year; Morganway have caught the attention of Whispering Bob, and were described by Maverick Magazine as “One of the best and most exciting prospects to emerge in a long time.”
The unforeseeable Coronavirus pandemic saw the band take a step away from the live scene to focus on writing. Now with new music and shows on the horizon, 2021 promises to be the next exciting chapter for Morganway.

Anyone fortunate enough to have been in the audience when LRB hosted the band back in September 2019 will know what a truly awesome experience Morganway are live.
Paul Carr, revPACman, picked Frozen in Our Time, filmed and recorded live at Little Rabbit Barn last September as his top song of 2019. Paul wrote "Frozen in Our Time is an instant classic, has an anthemic mystery attached to it and is such a mature song for a young band, S.J. Mortimer's vocal are sensational too!"
Here is the video of the award winning song and performance.
"This band are truly something special and surely destined for much bigger, they generate such electricity and atmosphere and tonight was
an absolute pleasure to watch.”
Chris Farlie (W21 Music, Buckle & Boots 2018 review)
"Heralding euphoric choruses and electric riffs Fleetwood Mac and The Strokes, the harmonies of icons ELO meeting The Magic Numbers somewhere along the way, and the modern female vocal of Haim, Morganway are quite the tour de force soup, but let’s be frank here: this Norfolk outfit doesn’t sound like anyone else."
