Nathan Morgan - Burning Road - 2010 - Nathan Morgan

Nathan grew up in Rex, Georgia among a family of devoted music fans. It was through his parents that he experienced the music of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd for the first time. Picking up guitar at the age of 11, Nathan rapidly began his quest for his own style, playing in every group from gospel and country, to rock and punk music. It was at the age of 16, however, that Nathan found his true passion in the music of the blues. Already accustomed to the music of Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Nathan began searching for inspiration in the music of Freddie King, B.B. King and Johnny Winter. Drawing upon these inspirations, Nathan has further developed his own blues style, emphasizing the passion and feeling of the music, rather than speed and flash. His original work with the Nathan Morgan Trio has truly brought a new sound to Atlanta, earning Nathan a well deserved role among the blues scene here in the Atlanta area. Nathan has played with the likes of John Mcknight of Delta Moon, Andrew Black, Mike Martin of Fozzy, Barry Richman of the Barry Richman Band, Nathan Nelson, and Yonrico Scott and Todd Smalley of the Derek Trucks Band. Nathan plays both Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars mixed with amplifiers from both Fender and Vox. Mark Wilson grew up in Stockbridge, Georgia and first began playing bass at age 13. His first band, Hourglass, was a collaboration with his brother Brian Wilson. After high school, Mark played in the band Steel Horses for about four years. During this time, he opened up for the likes of Confederate Railroad, Trace Adkins and Mark Wills. Playing with the band Peachtree Station, Mark had the opportunity to open for the Zac Brown Band as well. Recently, Mark has played with the likes of Andrew Black and Barry Richman. Along with his primary role in the Nathan Morgan Trio, he has also worked with up and coming country singer Barry Michael, opening for John Michael Montgomery and Joe Diffie in the process. Mark’s preferences for equipment are Fender basses played loudly through Ampeg amplifiers. His influences include Allen Woody of Gov’t Mule, Sting, Barry Oakley of the Allman Brothers Band, Stu Hamm, Donald “Duck” Dunn, John Entwhistle of the Who, and Marcus Miller, just to name a few. Lee Tyler began performing in the band 5th Wheel, performing throughout the Southeast in venues like Anderson Music Hall in Hiwassee, Georgia. Working with the Children’s Miracle Network, Lee also opened up for acts like John Anderson, Charlie Daniels, Kathy Mattea and many others. Lee has also in recent years toured with his own band, the Lee Tyler Band, and has opened up for the Zac Brown Band at the Georgia Theatre. Also, Lee has become a committed drum teacher through his business Drum Star Studios in which he teaches students of all ages how to play and read music. Lee exerts an intense and energetic stage presence, which is on display throughout the show and especially during his amazing solos. Lee’s influences include Artimus Pyle of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mitch Mitchell of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. © 2007-2012 Jango http://www.jango.com/music/Nathan+Morgan+trio?l=0

Influenced by artists like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nathan Morgan's "Burning Road" is a good, earthy album with soul, jazz, blues ,and Southern rock influences, and a refreshing change to the commercial crap out there at the moment masquerading as music. In 2008, after Nathan and his band had finished playing a gig at Blind Willie's, Atlanta, "Big Bill" Morganfield came up to Nathan and said, “You know kid you have a lot of talent. I've seen a lot of white kids play the blues, but you really got something.” Nathan later said that, “His words really influenced me, coming from someone who plays the national circuit and notices something about me and my music.”
