Denroy Morgan

b. c.1947, Spanish Town, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. Morgan embarked on his musical career in March 1965 when he emigrated to the USA, although his initial musical experience was gleaned in Jamaica through his association with Toots Hibbert of the Maytals. Morgan is acknowledged as a pioneer of the Jamaican music industry having introduced roots rock reggae to New York City. Initially he formed a band known as Mad Creators who performed US chart hits on the live circuit. By the close of the 60s Morgan recorded his debut, ‘Cheating’, which led to the formation of the Black Eagles, who released ‘I Come From Jamaica’. The group’s varying line-up performed throughout the 80s, although in 1981 Morgan began concentrating on his children’s musical career. While he nurtured his offspring he concurrently worked with the Black Eagles who released, ‘I’ll Do Anything For You’, written by Bert Reid of Crown Heights Affair. Reid has since stated that he had been inspired to compose the hit after witnessing and being impressed with Morgan’s vocal style. The band followed the hit with the equally popular, ‘Sweet Tender Love’, which signalled a series of hits including, ‘Reggae’, ‘Last Change’ and ‘Make My Day’. In 1992, Morgan took a hiatus from recording to promote his offspring as Morgan Heritage. Morgan’s success with the group led to the formation of the Heritage Music Group label, and the heritage continued with Dredz and Miriam Morgan who later evolved into LMS. In the same year he and Morgan Heritage performed in West Africa. Having enjoyed success with his progeny, Morgan returned to his solo career and re-recorded ‘I’ll Do Anything For You’, in both reggae and hip-hop styles. The song later featured on the release of the sublime Salvation. Notable tracks on his independent debut included, ‘Words Of The Most High’, ‘What Can I Do’, ‘My Time’, and ‘God Is Man’ in combination with Morgan Heritage. While accomplishing significant success with his children, Morgan has so far been unable to emulate their achievements, although his family’s success in Africa led to him being crowned an honorary king in the district of Brokust on the Ivory Coast.
