Here are some Psalms Song Writers we'd love you to meet.
Listen to Morgan Byrd
Songwriter from Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Morgan starting writing songs as a young teenager. He found words to express his passion for God in the Psalms. Morgan grew up in a churchplant. His family worked together to see the church established in Myrtle Beach.
Morgan grew in leadership playing music for the churchplant (and wrote personal songs to sing for his future bride).
As a young pastor Morgan stepped back from bringing music to his church and instead focused on teaching the Word. But alone in his garage Morgan reached out to God with his voice and his piano or guitar. He found strength, solace and courage from the Psalms and with his strong sense of melody and emotional truth he set a selection from book one to music.
Morgan recorded demos of these songs (the Garage sessions). This sparked interest amongst his church. One proactive member spurred him on to record these Psalms professionally (the Neptune Session).
Morgan and his father are preaching through every Psalm at Palmetto Shores Church www.psc.church. They found the comfort and challenge of these ancient songs lifting their community of believers from the first sermons during the turbulent days of 2020.
Morgan has written his first book; "Roots of our Faith".
