Dave Scott-Morgan leads his 3-5 piece band MOrganisation in a stage show featuring toe tapping originals, rock n roll classics and quintessential ELO hits.
MOrganisation is: Dave Scott-Morgan, Alex Lowe (lead guitar) and Mandy Scott-Morgan (backing vocals and percussion) plus Alan Smith (keyboards), Jack Rosa (drums & cajon) for the 5 piece set. Dave writes the songs and MOrganisation is the music creation tribe. Albums available: 'Across the Divide' and 'Bubbles', plus the recently released EP 'Highland'. The band are releasing a third album '7' on 7/7/19.
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 was touring 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.
From 1981 to 1986 Dave was part of the ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA (guitar, synth, vocoder + back-up vocals). He is credited on as a musician on ELO's album SECRET MESSAGES and on Jeff Lynne's ARMCHAIR THEATRE solo album, released in 1990.
Dave's long time collaboration with Richard Tandy (ELO's keyboard player) has resulted in many recordings: the concept album EARTH RISE; the single BERLIN and, together with guitarist Martin Smith, the charity single ACTION produced by Jeff Lynne; plus the compilation CD BC COLLECTION.
