Morgan's stories are raw, stark depictions of his life and experience. His hope is to bring further understanding and enlightenment that we are all the same in what we want and need. We all bleed red blood and we all need to love and be loved. We have created a mess of the land, oceans, and air. We have unbalanced the plant, and animal population. And we have created divide amongst ourselves, whether it be race, religion, economic status.... whatever. "It's time to get our shit together." Morgan says. "Maybe my music will become a small part in healing ourselves and healing our world."
Morgan Englund is a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, California. He started out as an actor in New York city where he landed the role of Dylan Lewis on the long running daytime series, Guiding Light. Morgan wrote and performed several songs on the show during his six year tenure. Morgan writes and performs his experience of love, loss, and the human condition. His indie country/rock style adds depth and soul to the stories he tells. Morgan grew up in the 1960's and 70's and was heavily influenced by the music of the time. From the Eagles to CSN to Bad Company, Elton John... But the night he saw Garth Brooks perform in Central Park was the moment his own songwriting career found a direction.
In the late 1990's, just when Morgan had finished recording his debut album in Nashville, his marriage fell apart. He decided to do whatever it took to provide a stable, loving home for his kids. Morgan switched gears entirely and became a firefighter/paramedic for the city of Los Angeles. After almost fifteen years and raising his two kids to adulthood, Morgan chucked it all to follow his dream: To make music that will bring the people of the world closer together. As a firefighter/paramedic Morgan was able to heal the body. As a songwriter and artist, Morgan heals the soul.
Morgan has always been a risk taker. Flying off cliffs on a pair of skis, launching off steep mountain peeks and soaring thousands of feet higher in his paraglider. Having the courage to leave a lead role in daytime television show that brought fame and fortune, but did not satisfy his soul. Morgan helped thousands of people as a firefighter/paramedic and saved countless lives and limbs. He is proud of the help he provided and the effort and sacrifice he made. But it is music that draws him.
