Morgan GuerinNew York City-based multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, and engineer Morgan has achieved much in his young, burgeoning career. From composition to appearances on significant stages, Morgan has spent his life exploring new and exciting ways to navigate sound.
Born right outside of New Orleans, LA, Morgan gravitated towards the drums when he was just a few months old and started playing the saxophone when he was seven. He moved to Atlanta in 2009 to complete middle and high school where he also began playing more instruments and getting deeper into engineering and production. He then moved to New York City in 2016 for college and to fully pursue his career.
Morgan is skilled in several instruments, including bass, saxophones, electronic wind instrument (EWI), drums, and keys. Notable collaborators include Terri Lyne Carrington and Kassa Overall, both with whom Morgan played bass, sax, EWI, and drums; Esperanza Spalding, with whom he played bass, sax, and synthesizers; and Tyshawn Sorey, with whom Guerin played tenor and soprano sax and EWI.
Dubbed a "wunderkind saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist" by The New York Times, Morgan was born into a musical family with a pianist mother and bassist father. Later, he went on to study at The New School in Manhattan. In 2016, the Huffington Post named his debut album, "The Saga", one of the best Jazz albums of the year. In 2017, Stereogum highlighted his sophomore album, "The Saga II", as one of the best new albums. He was featured on Terri Lyne Carrington & Social Science's award-winning album, "Waiting Game". He was also a songwriter and co-producer of Esperanza Spalding's 2019 Grammy-winning record, "12 Little Spells". His third album, "The Saga III", was released on September 18, 2020.
