Morgan Heritage: Bio

MORGAN HERITAGE was swept up in the major label reggae signing euphoria in 1992 inking a deal with MCA Records. The group, 5 children on foundation reggae artist Denroy Morgan, (peer of Toots Hibbert and the Maytals) Una, Peter, Gramps, Mr. Mojo and Lukes, did not have a successful tenure at MCA, not unlike many of their peers. Determined to make a success of the siblings, father Denroy who had migrated from Jamaica to the US in 1965 and had experienced commercial success with the R&B tinged “I’ll Do Anything” (1981Gold single) and recorded the album “Make My day” for RCA, decided to carve their own path.

In 1997 Denroy, Morgan heritage and their other siblings formed HMG (Heritage Music Group) Productions with a vision “to allow artists to express, explore and expand the essence of their musical exhibition”. Although Morgan Heritage released the albums Miracle, Protect Us and One calling it wasn’t until the 1999 release “Don’t Haffi Dread” that they swept to reggae’s front page and have stayed there. With a rigorous worldwide touring schedule and the running of the HMG Music empire MORGAN HERITAGE are well on the way to building a dynasty. Siblings LMS: Laza, Miriam and Shy-Poo represent three more of Denroy Morgan’s 29 children. The groups sing-jay style has found fans with Hip Hop, dancehall and roots reggae fans and their debut album “Zion’s Gate” added yet another page to the dynasty.
