MORGAN HERTIAGE

Born in Brooklyn's tough Bushwick neighborhood, raised in Springfield, Massachusetts and Jamaica, Morgan Heritage, the 5 offspring of the famed reggae vocalist Denroy Morgan, have been making music for over two decades now. The band has garnered: a cult-like following due to their electrifying stage performances, several #1 hits ("Let's Make Up," "Don't Haffi Dread," "Down by the River" & "What We Need Is Love") in Jamaica and abroad, as well as an extended stay in the Top 10 on Billboard's reggae albums chart for 2001's More Teachings and 2005's Full Circle. The Morgans are known for their fusion of Rockaz music (traditional one drop reggae with a blend of rock, popular in the 60's and 70's) with a modern day sound, which allowed them to penetrate new markets and fans. For example, the group has performed on the Vans Warped Tour, a haven for harder-edge bands, especially punk acts, and the most consistently successful festival in the States over the past 10 years. Today the band continues to diversify their sound, which will be showcased on their highly anticipated album "Mission In Progress."

Expected in late Winter, "Mission In Progress," produced by Morgan Heritage (with a few songs helmed by Shane Brown and longtime friend and supporter Bobby Digital), cooks organic roots reggae with a dash of rock, hip-hop and r&b soul, creating a whole new dynamic for the famed sibling group. "The main point in Mission in Progress," says Gramps, "is that we're on a musical mission, trying to take reggae to the next level, and put our stamp, and mark our history in reggae." The album features their infectious first single, "Brooklyn Jamaica" (representing both their old New York neighborhood and their home for the past 11 years: Jamaica), their new politically-conscious single "Headline Fi Frontpage," as well as the love song "Love You Right" (expressing romantic antics and pure devotion).
