Morgan Harper Nichols is a singer-songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. Morgan's career as a singer-songwriter began in 2004 at the age 14, when her mother, who was also her teacher, gave her a class assignment to turn her poetry and fiction into music, using her newly learned self taught ability of playing guitar. From this assignment, Morgan began writing songs and "Drowning," a song dedicated to the 2004 Hurricane Katrina victims was among her first. Morgan immediately began sharing her music at local churches, coffee shops, and various other places, including her college, Point University, where she began attending full time at the age of sixteen.
In 2007, her song "Doesn't Take Stars to Shine" was featured in the Lionsgate Film, The Bratz Movie. This was a monumental year for Morgan as this first major film appearance landed her a prime spot on Good Day Atlanta which created quite the local buzz, allowing her to open for acts such as American jazz violinist, Ken Ford. This was also the year of her first national tour, "Singing for College," where she raised money for her college tuition in various cities such as Atlanta, St. Louis, Dallas, and Los Angeles.
In 2009, Morgan traveled abroad for the first time in her life where she would live in Birmingham, England for six months as a part of the Globalscope Exchange Student program and University of Birmingham. As she became a part of the university community, Morgan was able to share her music on a weekly basis, which would lay the groundwork for an international fan base.
Since then, Morgan has managed to maintain a steady creative career with a growing following. She is a full time worship leader at Kingdom City Church in Stone Mountain, Georgia and enjoys playing around the world, from eastern Europe to east Texas, whenever there is an opportunity.
In 2010, Morgan married Patrick "Kekoa" Nichols, a writer, minister, and aspiring counselor. They live in Atlanta, Georgia and are the founders of Atlanta based publishing company, Great Name, as well as the founders of want less GIVE more.
Morgan is the older sister of Grammy-nominated, Dove award-winning Christian singer songwriter, Jamie-Grace. Together, Morgan and Jamie have a duo called Harper Still.

I love love love the song 'Storyteller' and am wondering if it and other songs by Morgan Harper Nichols will ever be released as a CD? As I am a "senior citizen', I like having the 'hardcopy' so to speak. Thanks for any help Regina Bryant
