morgan city is a band of Austin studio musicians who recorded the album 'down town' between 1997 and 2003 at Flashpoint Studio in Austin, Texas. Stylistically Americana music, 'down town' delves into flourishes of alt-country, blues, pop, Cajun and Zydeco layered with a creative variety of instruments including saxophones, pedal steel guitar, mandolin, accordion, fiddle and Dobro. The album features original material as well as songs from renowned writers such as Bobby Charles, Doug Yule, Eric Andersen, Larry Lee, Norman Greenbaum and Randy Newman. The name 'Morgan City' comes from a town on the "Cajun Coast" of Louisiana; there's also a Morgan City in both Mississippi and Alabama.
I want to thank all the music professionals who shared their talent and enthusiasm in shaping this endeavor and in particular Marvin and Flash who were so literally instrumental in seeing this dream become a reality.
