Morgan Sadler writes beautiful disasters. Or, that's how she likes describing the songs - to most everyone else, they are simply beautiful. Her structure may be all over the map, her lyrics thoughtful yet sometimes obscure; it is her voice and the emotion that drives it which will stay with you.
If you have ever seen Morgan perform live, you will attest that the connection she makes with every soul in the crowd is true and rare. She will look you in the eye and then close her own, connecting and then shielding you from the outpouring of raw emotion that she experiences with every song she sings. She has been compared to everyone from Janis Joplin to Norah Jones - wild bluesy soul to sweet, smooth and thoughtful.
Morgan has been performing and writing for years, getting her start at The Merchant, in Kingston ON. After haggling the owner (she was a waitress at the time) she started playing every Monday while going to school. She grew quite a following and soon other doors started opening. It was at that time that she decided to move to the city to create her first EP (Turn, 2009). Since then she's played everything from corporate galas to cozy jazz clubs, fundraisers and cottage parties and everything in between.
Morgan released her first EP, Turn in October, 2009. You can listen to all songs on her CBC Radio 3 page.
Morgan fronts the Morgan Sadler Trio (Ryan Grinnell - bass, Daniel Gillespie - drums). Most recently having played The Drake, The Gladstone and The Opera House, they are building momentum, and will be scheduling shows in the fall.
Morgan Sadler won a Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Song 2009-2010 (Go On, Turn).
With the TIMA she was given a prize of national radio distribution (Yangaroo sponsored). She was able to pick a single of her choice to send out over the airwaves! Morgan worked with producer Bill Bell on her single, "Perfect".
This is the start to an enduring career in writing and performing.
