Rhythm and blues artist Carlos Morgan's first audiences were from the Church of God of Prophecy in his native Canada. When he was a teen he moved on to perform with a number of R&B groups before going solo. His musical career has been one as a singer, songwriter, session artist, and even producer. After his first album was released in the '90s, he earned a number of awards, including a Canadian Urban Music Award for Best R&B Male Vocalist, a Juno Award for Best R&B/Soul Recording, and a MuchMusic Video Award for Best R&B Video.
Carlos Morgan grew up listening to artists like Nat "King" Cole and Stevie Wonder. Morgan's taste for music was versatile, moving freely between gospel, jazz, pop, rock, and even classical. A couple of the early R&B groups he worked with were Blue Zone and Lypstick.
In 1996, Morgan completed his debut album, Feelin' Alright. The recording was released under the D-Tone Records label -- a record label that Morgan formed with two friends. The independent album sold well, and music reviewers took notice; so did Universal Music Canada. Feelin' Alright was soon released again, this time under the Universal label. Some of the tracks on the debut are "Give It to Me," "Baby C'mon," "Whatcha Got," "Forever for You," and "April Flower."
After a break from solo recording for a few years, Morgan entered the studio again in 2001 to work on a long-awaited sophomore offering titled We're Gonna Make It. ~ Charlotte Dillon
