About Phillip Lee Morgan's Music

PHILLIP LEE MORGAN has taken inspiration from the most familiar American musical traditions and found common ground enough to develop a style wherein genres cross almost inperceptively. On the new album "The Sky & the Road" you will hear Morgan on the electric guitar with powerful rhythm tones and imaginative solos, or finger picking on an acoustic flattop perfectly complimented by Phil Jones' always driving, tastefully innovative drum style and Rick Rosas' fluid, soulful bottom on the electric bass. But it is the telling of stories that is central here, and Morgan has found a thoroughly universal voice in his lyrical style. His search for a personal philosophy is told in layman terms and is expressed in a way that the listener might take it for their own.
The deceptively simple style is not the result of fluff however, but rather a means to give complex issues broad accessibility. The characters are easily recognized and relationships are explored from almost every side. And like the music, what can be found in common is the theme. The songs are full of heroes who absolutely refuse to give up on love and cling to a faith in it that can find no situation hopeless... So put on your thinking cap and ready your soul, expect to move and to be moved, what ever your age or disposition this music is for you and one thing is certain, when you experience a music your inner fabric will get a workout that you will want to remember for a long, long time...
