There, the seeds of his career as a children's performer were planted. In 1995 Morgan moved to New York City to work for Recorded Books, Inc., a leading publisher of audio books. There, Morgan combined his humor, musical talents and expertise in children's literature and began writing the songs for his first CD, Bloom (1999). His debut album was met nationally with rave reviews and prestigious awards. His 2003 release When Bullfrogs Croak was nominated for a GRAMMY. He then released a DVD, ZakLand, in 2007, and a concept album about the Golden Rule, The Candy Machine, in 2011. His first release with myKaZoo Music is The Barber of the Beasts, featuring artwork by C.F. Payne and guest artist Bootsy Collins among others.
