Born in Eastbourne, England, in 1956, Richard Conrad Morgan grew up listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. In 1981, he packed away his turntable before studying in Canada and only took it out again 20 years later in Switzerland. He wrote his first song in 2005 after moving into a house in the country. Six months later, he had enough for an album.
A warm voice, melodies that swing, witty lyrics : Richard Morgan’s songs recall the standards of the golden age of jazz.
Also a documentary film-maker, Richard Morgan has lived in the French part of Switzerland for the last twenty years with his wife, Brigitte.
