Known for songs such as She's Still Loving Me, Don't Haffi Be Dread, among countless others, Morgan Heritage consists of Roy 'Gramps' Morgan, Nakhamyah 'Lukes' Morgan, Memo 'Mr Mojo' Morgan, Una Morgan, Denroy 'Daddy' Morgan and Peetah Morgan.
Currently under the wings of Shane Brown of Juke Boxx Productions, Peetah explained the reasons for the temporary split.
"Everyone knows the group Morgan Heritage. Now we've decided to introduce each person as a single artiste to the fans around the world. We've been talking about doing this for a year now, but then we released another album this year, Mission In Progress, and we did a touring project behind it, so now we're focusing on our stuff."
The children of reggae veteran, Denroy Morgan, the Morgan Heritage clan has grown up with music all their lives. For Peetah, it was that inherent love of music which inspired him to become an artiste. While each member of Morgan Heritage has his own sound, Peetah describes his solo sound as more "hip-hop oriented, with R&B and, of course, a touch of reggae".
So far, Peetah has recorded over 20 singles and has released Save The World for Shane Brown, a song that he says speaks to the increase in violent crimes around the world.
Peetah has other songs on the way, including Bye Bye from producer Donovan Germaine and In Love With Ya from Brown. The artiste spends most of his time in the studio, opting to forgo some shows until his solo career is launched.
While Peetah will be spending time promoting his solo career, he still doesn't want to take himself too far way from his Morgan Heritage roots.
"I can't get away from Morgan Heritage and I wouldn't want to, but is just to let everyone know of us as individuals," he explained.
Plans for the future include a concept album from the group. Peetah explained: "We want to make a landmark album of our career, something that will stand out in the industry and will be written about decades after its release.
