Dave Scott-Morgan, songwriter, singer and guitarist from Birmingham, England. Back in the day was with The Uglys, Magnum and the Electric Light Orchestra. Dave is the front man of the band and music creation tribe known as 'MOrganisation' which is Dave plus three, five or more musicians that include Alex Lowe (lead guitar) and Mandy Scott-Morgan (backing vocals and percussion), also Alan Smith (keyboards), Jack Rosa (bass & cajon). Their usual shows feature toe tapping originals, rock n roll classics and quintessential ELO hits.
Dave's musical past hails from the 'brum-beat' groups of the 60's - including MAGNUM (bass), THE UGLY'S (guitar) and the spin-off BALLS (with Steve Gibbons and Trevor Burton). His first album 'MORGAN' was produced by Lou Reizner in 1971 while Dave toured America as a folk singer. Dave’s songs brought him wider notice when recorded by groups such as WISHFUL THINKING ('Hiroshima') and THE MOVE ('Something' the B-side of their number one hit 'Blackberry Way'). The song 'Hiroshima' sung by the German artist SANDRA, became a pan-European mega hit reaching No.4 in the German charts in 1991.
In the last century Dave was part of the stellar Birmingham group ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA, and is credited on ELO's album SECRET MESSAGES plus Jeff Lynne's ARMCHAIR THEATRE solo album.
Many of Dave's songs have been recorded in collaboration with ELO keyboard player Richard Tandy: the concept album EARTH RISE; the single BERLIN and, together with guitarist Martin Smith, the compilation CD BC COLLECTION and charity single ACTION produced by Jeff Lynne.
Dave began composing inspirational songs in 1988: the CALL Compact Disc (1997) includes GOD'S GOOD TIME, produced by Jeff Lynne. Two further inspirational CDs, LONG WAY HOME and ANGEL LIGHT were followed by the newest release WALL TO WALL.
In 2012 Dave published his autobiography PATTERNS IN THE CHAOS and ACROSS THE DIVIDE, an album with songs that were written over several decades, covering an array of genres recorded with a wide range of musicians. This was followed with a digital album BUBBLES (only a few demo CDs have ever been manufactured), EP Highland and latest release Seven.
