"The Less You Do - Richard Morgan"

"What's New"

Englishman Richard Morgan is a published poet and has also been making documentaries for Swiss TV for the past 15 years. Recently, he decided to embark on his third creative career, writing and singing songs in a blues/jazz vein. Recently, he released an EP called Letting Go (invisipics). Morgan wrote all four songs and is accompanied by pianist Leo Chevalley.
The four songs are in the style of ’30s to ’50s jazz/blues and show Morgan to be a talented lyricist with wit, charm, and intellect. “Life’s A Roller Coaster” is a song of optimism that we can all relate to, about how the bad times in life are soon supplanted by good times. “Falling Down” is a lively and humorous little love song, and “Big Bad Man” is a harrowing, yet hilarious tale of encountering a fearsome chap in France. The title cut is a reflective track about growing old and letting things go that have held you back.
Morgan has a warm, engaging voice that suits his material well. He should only improve with more experience. As mentioned, his lyrics are first-rate and sometimes remind you of those mid 20th century jazzy standards. Chevalley provides excellent, sympathetic fills and the occasional solo.
Fans of jazzy piano-driven blues will find Letting Go to be a pleasant listening experience. Go to for more information on the disc and on Richard Morgan.

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 Morgans 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.

His new album, 'The Less You Do,' is available at iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby,, and various other digital distributors too.

A song from the album has just been accepted for inclusion on the compilation albums 'Goa Chillout Zone No. 4' from WOA Records, India, and Songsalive CD Sampler 11.

The song 'Unemployed' was a semi-finalist in the 2010 100% Music Songwriting Competition.
