1996 – It all gets started…

The birth of The Tim Morgan Project was as insignificant as a walk across the street. Back in the Fall of ’96, Tim crossed from his small log cabin in the heart of Tennessee to the shack of his friend Evan (A.K.A. Greg Mensching). Tim wanted to inquire about his friends’ assistance in putting some of his lyrics to light in the form of real and original music.  There was jamming and brainstorming and out of this came an idea!  After some performing and some recording & (with some fun stuff added in) on one of the tracks there was some live audience sound added with an introduction.  The third member, Canada (A.K.A. James Butler) was from Decatur, Alabama originally and when he made the introduction, he mistakenly said instead of “Introducing… Tim Malugin”  he said, “Introducing… Tim Morgan” who was the local DA in Decatur.  We like the sound of it so we all took on A.K.A.’s and The Tim Morgan Project was born.  The rough tracks and demos are available here.

 

1997 – Simple But True

In the summer of ’97, what started out as a couple of guys jamming into the late hours of the night turned into The Tim Morgan Project. With the addition of Rene (who left the band before the Projects completion) the band was complete, and they soon realized that the music they were working on was becoming more than they had ever dreamed it would. After some hard times and true test of character they slowly built a studio in Evan’s garage and began to get serious, planning and recording their first CD, “Simple But True“.

This CD was a ‘cool’ection of lyrical and musical efforts drawn from the life, times, struggles and triumphs of the band. Each cut is clearly unique, powerful, and effective.

1998 Does the band continue …

In January of 1998, Southern Storm recorded their Live CD “40 Days & 40 Nites” ,and soon after that, Tim left the band to concentrate solely on The Tim Morgan Project.  After finishing the CD “Simple But True”, efforts were made to put a band together to play live venues.  There were a few tryouts and some people joined and left.  Dakota James (a.k.a. Troy Banks from Southern Storm) played some guitar and a couple of songs were recorded, but he decided not to stay with the band.  Neil Vance joined the band and was the bass player.  Dan Dever, (René) hooked back up with the guys for another try, but at the first live performance there were a few mix ups and the band did not play.  It was at this time that the members decided to call it quits. 

 

1999 – Shift2 & more

Tim had been in the band Southern Storm from ’95 – ’98  and hooked up with fellow Southern Storm players Julio, Jeremy, and Troy and formed Shift2.  This band never got out of the practice room and dissolved in mid ’99.  Tim decided to work on a new solo project.  He was going to call it “Ma Luge In”, but decided instead to use the name that he had one solo CD with already; The Tim Morgan Project.  The project was slated to begin in the year 2000 and the plan was to finish it by the end of 2000.  That is why he chose the name, “2000 & Beyond”.

2000 – Working on a new CD

The year 2000 saw no Y2K cataclysm, and it did not see “2000 & Beyond” either.  Although Tim worked with several of his friends that he had worked with in the past on some of the titles that would be included on that CD, by the end of the year it was in no way completed.  One of the songs worked on was “Every Moment”, which was a song that was created by Shift2.

Tim did however release a mp3.com cd entitled simply The Tim Morgan Project.  It had 4 tracks on it and was a mixture of songs from all his musical endeavors.  They were:  : 1.  Down, So Down (from Southern Storm), 2. Simple But True (from The Tim Morgan Project), 3.  Cryin’ Tyme (from Shift2) and Time On My Hands (alternate keyboard version before unreleased)

2001 – “2000 & Beyond”  (date released – 06/04/2001)

The beginning of 2001 saw Tim hosting Open Mic Night @ the Campus Pub. He was meeting musicians and having a blast, and the “2000 & Beyond” CD was on the back shelf. At the beginning of May, the Campus Pub thing came to an end and Tim wanted to complete what he had intended to complete in 2000. He asked one of the guys he met at the Campus Pub; Phil Jackson, to put some lead guitar tracks to some songs that were in the can from former endeavors.  This yielded 3 more songs for the CD, “Cryin’ Tyme“, “Wasting Away“, and “Déjà Vu“. Tim also dusted off “God & Child“, and “Grape On The Vine” and on June 4th, 2001 “2000 & Beyond” was officially released.

2003 – Life After the Iguana Tree  (date released – 02/02/2003)

This album was Tim’s first attempt to release a album of music done by him alone.  Tim Malugin is The Tim Morgan Project now, and he had learned to play guitar in order to write and continue to do music.  This album is almost exclusively acoustic except on a couple of the songs, but for the most part this CD was done by Tim alone.  One day he hopes to re-release this album with tracks redone with a full music score but for now, this version is all that is available.

The track list is as follows:

  1. Crumble & Fall [Bass guitar by artist Tim hired but cannot remember his name]
  2. Love on the Internet
  3. Pentium
  4. One More Yesterday
