Claude Butch Morgan is a triple threat on the Texas music scene; he is a songwriter, storyteller, and guitarist who is constantly pushing his limits as a performer. He honed his chops as a guitar player in various USO bands while in the military during Vietnam, then came home to the San Antonio area and became known across Texas for his lead guitar skills and his energetic performance style. He found his songwriter groove at The Kerrville Folk Festival and was a finalist for New Folk in 2005 and 2008 and a winner of the Wildflower Performing Songwriters contest in 2004. A “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” nominee at the Texas Music Awards in 2012, Morgan continues to grab audiences with his songwriting and storytelling, punctuated by the taste and tone of a world class guitarist.
Morgan’s 2013 album, Dry, is an extremely personal look into Morgan’s life and history. Co-produced with Chris Gage at Moonhouse Studio in Austin, Dry was recorded live in the studio with Trevor Doak Morgan (drums) and Robert Robar Adams (bass). While the musical approach may be pared down compared to other projects, the songs are quintessentially Claude Butch Morgan...winding in and out of heartbreak, humor, smart lyrics, and elevating melodies. He plans to spend 2013 touring Texas and beyond to bring the new album and a live show like none other to Morgan fans old and new.
