Clair Morgan heads into the studio with engineer T.J. Lipple in Arlington, Va to record a collection of songs in his first solo effort.
My name is Clair Morgan. I'm a singer/songwriter/guitarist heading into the studio to record an album for the first time in my life without being in a band. I haven't had much luck with keeping bands together over the last ten years but for the last few have found myself playing and writing songs on my own.
I've gotten married and become a father (with #2 on the way!). Life has never been busier, more intimidating or more rewarding. Slowly, between diaper changes, naps and jobs I have grown a collection of songs and ideas I feel very excited about. It's time for me to record this album. I want this recording to be an honest documentation of where I've been musically and mentally for the last few years. The timing for me is right for me to do this.
I've had aspirations to record a solo album for a very long time. I've been lucky to play with great musicians and friends in a few different bands but I'm very excited about this chance for me to grow on my own as a musician, songwriter and person. I finally have a chance to record an album I've been daydreaming about for years. I can't wait to share it with you.
I'll be recording my first album "NO NOTES" in June/July with engineer T.J. Lipple in Arlington, Va. I've recorded with T.J. before to document a band I was in called Langley Holland and have co-engineered a couple of projects with him as well. I'm looking forward to getting to work with him again. It's going to be fun time.
