Biography

Active: 1990s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America
Member of: Spock's Beard , Flying Colors

Los Angeles singer/songwriter and guitarist Neal Morse began his musical career early, taking piano lessons at five and performing in musicals and beginning guitar by the age of nine. By the time he reached his twenties, Morse had written two musicals and played with Al Stewart and Peter White. After returning from an extensive European trip, Morse formed the progressive rock band Spock's Beard with his brother Al; the group released its debut album, The Light, in 1994. In addition to his duties with Spock's Beard, Morse released his self-titled solo debut 1999 on Metal Blade Records, and produced and arranged all of the album's tracks. With 2003's Testimony, Morse began to infuse his deeply held religious convictions into his work, a trend that continued with 2004's One and 2005's ?. In 2006 he collaborated with Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and bassist Randy George on Cover to Cover, yes, a covers collection. Morse resumed that collaboration in 2007 on his highly controversial concept album Sola Scriptura, which examined life of German theologian Martin Luther. In 2011, Morse returned to the story he started in 2003 with Testimony Two, which further detailed his spiritual awakening as well as his decision to leave Spock's Beard. Arriving in 2012, Momentum and Cover 2 Cover saw Morse working once again with George and Portnoy. That same year marked the studio debut of progressive rock supergroup Flying Colors, which, along with Morse, included Portnoy, Dave LaRue, Casey McPherson, and Steve Morse. A pair of worship albums, Songs from November and To God Be the Glory, dropped in 2013 and 2016, respectively. Alive Again and Similitude of a Dream, the former a concert album and the latter a typically ambitious double concept LP, also saw a 2016 release. Another concert set, Morsefest 2015: Question Mark and Sola Scriptura Live, followed in 2017. ~ Heather Phares & Thom Jurek~ Rovi
