Morgan Taylor Reid is a modern day "piano man" who's as passionate about creating music as he is about performing it. When asked to describe his musical style, Reid said he'd rather pick a guitar and play for you, or pull up his latest recording session in his studio, than try to describe his music in words.
Born and raised in Santa Rosa, California, Reid showed undoubting musical talent at a very early age. He has a deep love for the piano, an instrument he began to pursue at the age of four. Over the years he has developed a talent for guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, synths and drums, among many other percussive instruments. As he grew up he was exposed to his mother’s love of Top 40 hits as well as his father’s passion for classic rock bands such as The Beatles and Eagles. This exposure led him at the mere age of eleven to dabble in a bit of songwriting of his own.
Nowadays, as a multitalented singer, songwriter, record producer and musician, Reid has his own recording studio and is primarily based in Los Angeles. Recent artist collaborations which include Joseph (White Flag), Max (Gibberish), Grace Mitchell (NoLo), Shane Harper (P.O.W.E.R.) and Backstreet Boys (Show 'Em What You're Made Of). His much anticipated single with DJ Marshmello entitled "Ritual" dropped on November 1st.
Forthcoming cuts for the BMI affiliated writer include co-writes with artists as diverse as Chromeo, Colbie Caillat, Wrabel, Conrad Sewell, Cardinox, Mickey Guyton, Steve Moakler, and Warner Bros. Records' newest artist Mikey Mike. Morgan's song "Made For You", written with artist Alexander Cardinale, can be heard in an upcoming international Coca-Cola ad campaign.
In recent years Morgan’s music as a solo artist has been featured in various TV shows including ‘House M.D.' and ‘Grey’s Anatomy'.
