A few years ago, Aileen Morgan was going through something we've all been through: heartbreak. In trying to heal, the singer-songwriter spent time on Folly Beach reflecting on her experience. Part of that process was writing a delicate song called "Love Alone."

"It's about being in love with someone who so deeply changed my life," Morgan said by phone from New York City, where she lives. "I expressed all that pain through that song. I really put my heart in it."

She made a video of the song on Folly Beach and posted it on YouTube. The beach and the song go hand in hand, she said: The throbbing ache of "Love Alone" could only be appeased by the hypnotic, tranquil hush of Folly's rolling surf.

"Folly is my favorite place in the world," she said. "It healed me. There was such a deep connection to the person I sing about. I was going through a lot of pain. I could heal by being on the beach."

The pain is gone now but the video continues to connect with people. On YouTube, the New Jersey native said, she can reach people all over the world far better than she can even on MySpace. You can see the video at "Love Alone" can also be found on iTunes in two versions, acoustic and studio produced. For more, go to Morgan's website, —John Stoehr

“What has risen to the surface along my journey is that I write, sing and play my music as a form of healing and self-growth.”

With her upcoming album, “Room To Grow” Aileen says, “Something magical is happening with each new song that I write. Through this deeply honest and revealing medium of self healing and expression, a beautiful reaction has occurred; my listeners have found my music healing too.”

There are the facts: a singer-songwriter, an Irish-American daughter, born in an old farm town on the outskirts of New York City, a uniquely talented musician who has studied with legends in their fields, a performer equally gifted in command of both voice and guitar. There are the impressions, left on anyone who sees her perform: the smile, the depth, the soul on display in a three-minute song, and of course that voice. But somehow more important than all of that is the music. Her music may be described as pop, folk, blues, or rock, but behind the inevitable labels there is a music that is formed by her own experiences and distinctly her own.

Aileen's desire to enrich her journey began at age 11. She was drawn to live overseas, in a mystical oasis set in the highly secluded mountains of West Ireland, thus beginning her formal musical education in voice. Although mostly self-taught, Aileen thrived in her new musical environs, earning a vocal scholarship to attend the University of South Carolina at the age of eighteen. While in Charleston, Aileen absorbed and interpreted the new sounds and styles of music around her, in a fashion that has continuously marked her musical career.

Flourishing artistically, Aileen taught herself the guitar, began to write music and perform with bluegrass artist Seth Morrison, study with renowned jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, and record with Southern folk phenomenon Frank Carlier. The songs from this early period in her songwriting are astounding, often epic works of emotion that demonstrate an innate ability to communicate ideas and feelings through song. Today, Aileen has grown this gift into an unmatchable bounty of music, capturing the experience of love, growth and the essence of life through song.

No matter the size of the audience Aileen plays to, she relishes in her ability to connect with them emotionally. As an artist, Aileen heals, inspires, enriches lives, and provides comfort with a sense of community through her music.
