After blazing a trail with two hit EPs, Novocastrian singer/songwriter Morgan Evans is set to launch his much-anticipated debut self-titled album through Warner Music Australia on Friday 14 March.
The album was recorded in Nashville with an all-star cast of players and produced by ex-pat Aussie producer/musician Jedd Hughes (Keith Urban, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss). Evans had a hand in writing nearly every track on the album – some on his own, some with local artists and many with A-list Nashville songwriters.
The album tells the story of perseverance through life’s toughest blows by holding on to childhood innocence. From the thrill of infatuation in I Wanna Go, the deep devotion of Love You Home and the seductive Make You Feel Like A Woman to the romantic turmoil and betrayal in lead single One Eye For An Eye and opening track Like A Tornado, the glories and heartbreaks of love are laid soulfully bare. The final tracks are Morgan’s take of The Triffids song Wide Open Road and the Guy Clark classic The Cape, another story of the childhood spirit, with country and roots star Kasey Chambers providing vocals on the song.
