If you happen to be reading this, my name is Morgan Rider. I am a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, among many other worthy and worthwhile pursuits. I also built a website to spew forth my music, which I having lovingly bestowed the description of ‘Doomy, folk-laced, blues, soul and ambient music from the deep North’.
This is Deep Dark River, and I have a lot of things I want to do. As of typing this, I am nearly 28 years old and have massive experience touring and playing as a session member for bands such as Vesperia, Crimson Shadows, SIG:AR:TYR, Battlesoul, Hallows Die, among others! I’ve toured around the world and seen a lot of wonderful sights. I have played in fronts of thousands and crowds of less then 2 digits.
I’ve decided the most worthy pursuit would be to play the music I have always wanted to create. And that is what I am going to do. I am no longer bound to the reservations and opinions of others. I am completely unfettered to create whatever wondrous and horrid sounds that my brain and fingers summon. Also upon my to-do list is to create a multitude of videos, which I absolutely will post in here on a near-weekly basis (let’s see if I can commit to this, future self – November 27, 2017). This will include covers I have always wanted to learn, record or film. They will be from some of my favourite artists that I listen to, met or befriended in my years of being an active musician.
There are many things I hope to accomplish under the words of DEEP DARK RIVER, and I hope you (whoever might read this) might accompany on my journey. You can do this by following on my social media pages:
Thank you for the support 🙂
