Morgan Guerin

New York City-based multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, and engineer Morgan Guerin has achieved much in his young, burgeoning career. Guerin’s life has been filled with new and exciting ways of navigating sound, from composition to performances on important stages. Guerin was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. He began playing the saxophone at age seven and gravitated to drums as a baby. In 2009, Guerin moved to Atlanta to finish middle and high school. Here he began to play more instruments and delve deeper into production and engineering. In 2016, Guerin moved to New York City to pursue his college career. Guerin can play a variety of instruments including bass, saxophones and electronic wind instrument (EWI), as well as drums and keys. Terri Lyne Casey and Kassa Overall were Guerin’s collaborators. They played bass, EWI, drums, and sax with each other; Esperanza Spalding played bass, synthesizers, and sax with him; and Tyshawn Srey played EWI and tenor sax with Guerin. Dubbed a “wunderkind saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist” by The New York Times, Guerin was born into a musical family with a pianist mother and bassist father. He went on to The New School in Manhattan later. The Huffington Post ranked his debut album, “The Saga,” as one of the top Jazz albums of 2016. Stereogum praised his second album, “The Saga II,” in 2017. Terri Lyne Carrington featured him.
