Jermaine Morgan is originally from the small town of Houston, Mississippi. He is a very versatile musician and producer from a very musical family. Jermaine studied music at Itawamba Community College and later continued his musical studies and earned a Bachelors at the University of North Alabama. He later moved to Atlanta GA to complete a internship at Doppler Studios, where he met and had the opportunity to work with many artists. Over the last 6 years Jermaine has released several solo bass albums: The Journey Continues, Life, and Grooves and Ideas… and is currently working on his latest album set to release fall 2017. There are many Religious as well as Jazz influences in his music which work together to create a unique and soulful sound.
Jermaine Currently teaches over 12,000 up and coming bass players via YouTube and his own personal website http://www.jermainemorgan.net/ where he offers virtual bass courses. This was the result of trying to figure out ways to help more people with a limited amount of time.
Jermaine is really big on community and helping to reach the youth. Although he resides in Atlanta GA, there’s still a great deal of concern for the youth back home in MS as well as where music appreciation is headed in that area. As a result of this he decided to be proactive and do something about the situation by becoming the founder of Chickasaw County Instrumental Music Festival (CCIMF) http://ccimf.net in Houston Ms. As well as several other charitable events in Northeast Ms including Shed for a Cause http://hopethatgives.org/shed-for-a-cause/ and Music Matters http://hopethatgives.org/music-matters/.
Jermaine Morgan hopes to inspire, influence, and encourage others through his music.
“It has always been a passion of mine to create and record good music. Growing up, I was always inspired when I would go different places and hear incredible musicians play effortlessly on their instruments. I was never really one to get discouraged when I heard people who were better musicians. For some reason it always inspired me to want to go and practice.”
