Una Morgan makes Break Through Progress with new Solo Album 11 FEB 2K10
Una Morgan is the sole female sibling of the Reggae band of this decade, Morgan Heritage. Despite having ten studio albums under her belt with her family band, having performed for stadium-sized audiences across the world, and having garnered much of the success and longevity that many artistes can only hope for, in 2006 Una took a step back from the limelight. “I wanted to take time to recreate and develop myself physically, mentally, and spiritually.” During this time she also focused on building her production company; SIA Entertainment, strengthening family ties, improving her physical health, and connecting with her spirituality. Yet as a true performer, Una could not sit back idly.
Now as a solo artist she has developed with her own distinctive sound. Una Morgan’s signature sound is a blend of Reggae, Dancehall, Pop, Hip Hop and Soul fused to be appropriately called Raggasoul. With this distinctive sound, an excellent voice and great studio production Una’s single “Giving” produced by Lenky ( Sean Paul, Nina Skys etc) perfectly captures her sound.. She is also excited about the contribution made on the “Tribute to Haiti” track produced by the great Handel Tucker. (producer of Maxi Priest – Close to You, Shabba Ranks – House Call, and Just a Little bit longer, hits with Sly and Robbie and Beenie Man) [Maybe get a quote from Una about what it means to her to contribute to this charity song]
Una has is also working with acclaimed local and international producers on her debut solo album. She is very excited about working with multi Grammy Award winning producers Commission Gordon [Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone) a collaboration that was set up by Rubikon ENT who list Gordon among their clients.
Her solo album presents collaborations with established and new names in the industry. On her album she has worked with other established producers and writers, such as, Stephen McGregor, Jimmy Cozier, and Taj from the 90’s group The Boys. However, Una has also returned to her hometown of Springfield, Atlanta to work with rising stars such as Kiana India, ME, and producer “X”,[ in the hope that she can give these young talents the launching pad for their careers that they have been looking for
The Raggasoul songstress, Una Morgan hopes that with her new album, entitled Just Me, she can show her evolution in music, life, and spirituality, while continuing to uphold her family’s legacy.
To address the rumors, Una ensures her fans that her solo venture is not signaling the breakup of Morgan Heritage. “We always knew that we would build as a group, use that foundation to take things to the next level, and then come back to the family.” You can even find some more Morgans on the credits, with brothers Mr. Mojo and Gramps assisting in mixing and production, a true testament to the strong bond that keeps their family together.
Looking to fully capitalize on her groups’ international success, Una has recently signed to Gary George Inc. (GGI) and Rubikon Entertainment management companies to use their pooled wealth of resources for management and legal services to propel her development. Rubikon is a UK-based management and legal firm that provide management and legal & business affairs to a slew of prominent artistes and producers amongst other entities
Una Morgan has undoubtedly been blessed, but don’t be fooled; Miss Morgan has not let her accomplishments go to her head. She remains humble and has made it her personal mission to use her celebrity, as well as her music, to champion issues such as health, weight management, self-esteem, and other issues plaguing women around the world. “I’m very concerned that many young women today are doing things to please everyone else. We need to work on being one with the Creator first, and I hope my music can inspire young women to do that.”
