"Feelin' Alright", Morgan's debut album, showcased the diversity of Morgan's sultry singing style with seductive ballads like "Let Me Love Again" and "Forever For You" to the upbeat R&B tracks "Give It To You" and "Baby C'Mon". Originally recorded as an independent release for DTone Records, it quickly became one of Canada's hottest selling indie albums of 1996/97, topping the charts at number three on The Record's independent charts after only two weeks of release. "Whatcha Got" co-written and co- produced by Morgan and Chris Rouse went Top 40 in Canada. It's inclusion on the top 50 Canadian CHR songs for 2000 and MuchMusic Video Award nomination, paved the way for his re-introduction as a self produced artist.

Morgan was also awarded Best New Comer and Best Songwriter at the 1997 Caribbean Cultural Committee Awards. In 2002, Morgan had the repeated distinction to be included into the Canadian Who's Who; Canada'a oldest and complete who's who publication. "Those included are not only selected based on merit alone, but selected on the contribution they have made to life in Canada". Elizabeth Lumley: Editor. For Morgan, the stage has always been a place where he comes alive and feels most at home. "If you've never seen this guy live, you have to check him out. He tears it up!"- Tony Young (Master T), MuchMusic. His commanding interaction with the fans, his high energy and heat generated during his soulful jams have combined to earn Morgan the reputation of being one of the few artists who can deliver that which his recordings embody. reviews such as "Toronto based crooner Carlos Morgan puts the boots to the notion that Canada can't produce slick, sexy urban music"- SOCAN Words & Music: "Top R&B/Soul vocal stylist"- Billboard Magazine; "One of the best practitioner of R&B in North America let alone Canada"- Mike Bullard, CTV & The Comedy Channel. Inspired by such music legends such as Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Babyface, Nat King Cole, Luther Vandross, Will Downing, D'Angelo, Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Charlie Wilson and Barry White, Morgan's evolution brings him to the release of his second CD, self titled "Carlos Morgan". Writing, recording and producing the final 16 songs for this album has taken 8 years to complete. Some of the songs have already been released. Songs like "We're Gonna Make It", "Just Jane", "Hey Yo T.O." and "Pashmina Girl" have been released but not to a world wide audience. Morgan's plans and goals are to attract and gain a bigger audience with the R&B/Soul sound that has been missing in music for the last decade. "Carlos Morgan" will explain Morgan's life journey and experiences and the beginning of new self discovery through his love for God .... and in doing so finding himself, the life and love that he never had. From all the many life challenges, changes and triumphs, the new CD will give insight and light into his life story, which signifies and represents where it all started.
