Biography

Morgan Shaker was raised in the Ocean on the shore of Cape Cod and grew up Listening to the waves crashing and the gulls howling. From the reel to reel tape recorder, he learned distance, from the church organ he learned patience, from the fishing boats bells he learned chances, from the stories of his family, he learned how to entertain. A typical Morgan Shaker show consists of introductions, invocations, and allusions, Songs drift in and out of the ether as vibrating sonic sculptures transform and trasnport the audience. Whether thundering through the damp pine woods or digging for truth from the piles and piles of human words left to the elements, Morgan Shaker combines chance, fidelity, and solid songwriting, to create a sonic experience like no other.
