Morgan Geer is the American songwriter behind Drunken Prayer, and current guitar player for iconic alt-country goths, Freakwater. Recently Morgan has been touring internationally with The Handsome Family.
Over the past two years Drunken Prayer | Morgan Geer has played hundreds of venues across 18 countries and 15 US states including the Newport Folk Festival, San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, and the Pickathon Music Festival. Geer’s music has been featured on AMC, NPR, WFMU and SiriusXM.
Drunken Prayer will likely bring to mind The Band for a lot of listeners, with the sense of history and tradition. But Morgan Geer’s songs and his singing often suggest a kinship with artists like Bobby Charles or Doug Sahm, musicians with Southern roots, with a yip and break to their voices, and notes of sadness offset by a sense of humor.
The new Drunken Prayer album, Cordelia Elsewhere, mixed by Mitch Easter (REM), will be officially released in March 2019.
“The Elsewhere Tour” will bring Drunken Prayer up and down both US coasts and across the country, spanning 50+ cities.
