2020 Debut Album
"My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul. Awake harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples." Psalms 108:1-3
Released in August 2020, Awaken the Dawn is Morgan Allen's first full length project, with many more to come in the future! The inspiration for our title track comes from Psalms 108:1-3, quoted above. That scripture is not only the theme for our song, but also for our entire purpose as musicians. All of the tracks on the album are available in our music library page. You may listen to the full length recordings or purchase a download.
Morgan Allen and Family @ The River Gardens with Special Guest Abby Malloy
August 22, 2021 6pm
Located on the grounds of The River Family Church in beautiful Vista, California. This will be a very special night for the Morgan Allen crew. Last year, due to Covid, they were unable to have a Album Release Concert for their debut album "Awaken the Dawn", so this year they are making up for it by celebrating with the team from Bridge Studios in Missouri, Steffen Gastineau and Nate Yake. Also, they are bringing another breakout artist Abby Malloy to share music from her freshman and sophomore albums. But wait, it gets even better. They will be joined by some of the incredibly talented musicians that they have worked with through the years in North County including Tres "Sojourn" Hodgens, Mike Riddle, Robert Edmondson and Jeff Gordon. If you can't join us in person, then join us via livestream. We will be livestreaming to our YouTube channel or you can go to www.corporatestreams.com/morgan-allen-concert
