Dave Scott-Morgan, aka Dave Morgan, has a musical history stretching back to the 60's in Birmingham, including being part of THE UGLY'S (guitar) and MAGNUM (bass). His songs brought him wider notice when recorded by the groups THE MOVE and WISHFUL THINKING and the song 'HIROSHIMA' was a hit twice in Europe, reaching a high of No.4 in the German charts in 1991, sung by the artist SANDRA. In the 80s, Dave was in the stage line-up of the ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA (guitar, synth, vocoder + back-up vocals). He is credited as a musician on ELO's album SECRET MESSAGES and Jeff Lynne's ARMCHAIR THEATRE solo album (1990). Dave's long time collaboration with Richard Tandy (ELO's keyboard player) resulted in the concept album EARTH RISE and the single BERLIN in the mid 80s and later with guitarist Martin Smith, the charity single ACTION (produced by Jeff Lynne) and the compilation CD ‘The BC Collection'. (In 2011, the album EARTHRISE was remixed, repackaged and re-released on the ROCK LEGACY label).
Life changed completely for Dave in June 1988 when he became a born-again Christian and began composing inspirational songs. The CALL Compact Disc released in 1997, includes a track titled GOD'S GOOD TIME, produced by Jeff Lynne. Two further inspirational CD albums, LONG WAY HOME and ANGEL LIGHT were released in 1999 and 2002 respectively, and for 10 years (until December 2009), Dave was lay pastor at a free Christian church in South Birmingham. Together with his wife Mandy, Dave sings at churches and concerts in England and abroad, as well as the occasional rock’n’roll gig.
Now in 2013, Dave is promoting the album 'ACROSS THE DIVIDE', with 11 original songs,produced with Martin Smith.
