Someone forgot to tell Morgan Bernard that she should be a typical student – studying for exams, hanging out with friends. Instead, Morgan spends her time playing concerts, writing songs, going to interviews and performing on TV shows, and living the life of a typical rock star!
Morgan has always been one who stood out from the crowd. Her parents, Alain, a world-renown custom motorcycle designer and builder who’s featured on the Discovery TV Show “Café Racer” and Christine were born and raised in France and moved to the Tampa area shortly before Morgan was born. Alain and Christine realized at an early age that Morgan had a special musical talent. She started playing piano at age 6, guitar at age 8 and began singing and performing on stage by the age of 10.
Morgan’s stage show is an eclectic blend of straight ahead rock, hook-laden pop rock originals with some fun rockabilly thrown in for good measure. You can hear her diverse influences from Lady Gaga and AC/DC to Brian Setzer and Elvis in every song she sings. Morgan and her band also cover a number of classic rock songs, but also picked new songs from the radio.
It was at one of her performances at the famed Wednesday night Jam at Gaspar Grotto Bar in Ybor City where Morgan met Mike Pachelli, the world renown guitarist and producer. Pachelli immediately saw the enormous talent in the young Morgan and invited her to record in Nashville. The resulting collaboration is her debut CD, “Give It All”.
The band is working now on new songs to be recorded and produce in LA by Rami Jaffee (pianist of the Wallflowers and Foo Fighters) but also writing new songs and going more to a Garage band style. The new album will be released by the end of 2015.
Morgan and her band were touring in France and Belgium in June and July 2014 and went back in November for an acoustic tour, they are currently booking the summer European tour that is scheduled to kick off in late May 2015. In the meantime, her days are spent attending virtual classes on line(where she’s a straight A student) and all her spare time is dedicated to her one true love – music!
