Critic Views

“The record industry only cares about who writes the best songs; who has that career-establishing song. And I think this guy’s got a couple of them.”
- Al Bowman, founder of the L.A. Music Awards

“Alan Morphew plays folk rock, with elements of country and 70’s classic rock… A strong singer/songwriter with melodic and catchy tunes… Lyrics range from the personal and introspective to the socially conscious and political… Morphew has an outstanding voice with an impressive range. His ability to move effortlessly from lower notes to a Jeff Buckley-esque falsetto serves his songs well… A spirited performance, making eye contact with audience members, engaging the crowd verbally, and singing with earnest passion… He has a great deal of stage presence and a willingness to interact with his audience in a warm and honest way…”
- Music Connection Magazine, June 2007 – Los Angeles, CA


“A genuine soul carrying on the long-practiced folk music tradition of “leaving it all behind” and pursuing his musical dreams… Alan Morphew is a fabulous singer/songwriter and musician. Alan’s “Four More” release really showcases his studio-savvy production skills and borders on being the best “Folk Pop” creation I have experienced.”
- Phillip Beasley, President, Memphis Songwriters Assoc, 2007, Memphis, TN
