As the daughter of reggae veteran Denroy Morgan, chanteuse Una and her siblings were guided, similarly to the Jackson 5 onto a musical path at a young age. The Morgan clan’s father encouraged his children to explore and develop their talents, and helped Una to discover her many gifts. As a vocalist, songwriter, and keyboardist, Una’s integral contribution to iconic family group Morgan Heritage helped propel her and her siblings to worldwide acclaim. SFLCN
Raised in multiple environments, from the gritty streets of Brooklyn to the suburbs of Springfield, Massachusetts, this helped to influence Una’s eclectic musical style. While she remains connected to her roots reggae background, Una has never been afraid to venture in new directions with her sound. Influenced by vocalists such as Grace Jones, Sade, Whitney Houston, and Alicia Keys, she describes her sound as “reggae soul,” a mix between reggae, pop, R&B, and hip-hop.
In early of next year, she is set to release her debut album "Just Me", which will represent her first solo album produced on the main stage of reggae music. Familiar names such as Don Corleone, Stephon MacGregor, and Jimmy Cozier all are inlcuded in some way or form on the album as well. “Just Me is about life experiences, some good, some bad, but it’s really just about me making good inspirational music that makes people want to move,” she says.
Una ensures her fans that her solo venture is not signaling the breakup of Morgan Heritage, who recently headlined International Night at Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica. “We always knew that we would build as a group, use that foundation to take things to the next level, and then come back to the family.” You can even find some more Morgans on the credits, with brothers Mr. Mojo and Gramps assisting in mixing and production, a true testament to the strong bond that keeps their family together.
