Biography

Steve Morgan, a St. Louis MO native, was primarily an acoustic blues guitarist until 1978, when he was asked to play slide guitar in a just forming southern rock band named Easy Street. He stayed with the Easy Street Band for the next 9½ years.

Beginning in 1988, Steve filled in occasionally on guitar on an as needed basis for several St. Louis blues performers that included Silver Cloud, Johnny Johnson, Henry Townsend, Ron Edwards, and Doc Terry, as well as with other St. Louis blues players. 

Also in 1988, Steve formed No Money Down, which played the St. Louis scene until 1990, when Steve formed Twilight Jump, an eight piece blues/R&B group featuring two female vocalists as well as Steve on vocals.

In 1992, seeking a change, Steve moved to Wellfleet MA, and shortly thereafter formed Steve Morgan and the Kingfish, a band that is still playing today.

In 1996, Steve and the Kingfish recorded “Boppin’ the Blues”, a CD of blues covers.

Between 1996 and 2008, Steve stayed busy with the Provincetown Jug Band, Skeeter and the Buzztones and Willy and the Po' Boys as well doing occasional gigs with the Kingfish.

Steve went into the studio with the Kingfish in 2008 to record Hurricane, a CD of Steve’s original tunes which was very well received both nationally and internationally.

Several of Steve’s tunes have won awards in song writing festivals in St. Louis and on Cape Cod.  Steve's tunes manage to defy exact definition. Somewhere in a zone between blues, jazz, the islands, and rock,...For want of a better term, Steve has referred to his tunes as modern blues and R&B...Call 'em what you want, they ain't the same ol' blues. 

In 2009, Steve began hosting The Thursday Morning Blues Cruise with Steve Morgan on 92.1FM WOMR and 91.3FM WFMR, a community FM radio station based out of Provincetown MA and Orleans MA, and airing on alternate Thursdays.

In August 2013, the newest CD by Steve Morgan and the Kingfish was released: Blues In Paradise.  Steve Morgan and the Kingfish are alive and well and playing out often.
