Lyndon Morgans – ‘Of Gods And Men’

❉ Welsh songwriter Lyndon Morgans of Songdog releases his first full-length album under his own name.

Recently released (28 October 2022) on Junkyard Songs, Of Gods And Men is the first album from Welsh songwriter Lyndon Morgans to be released under his own name, having put out his previous eight albums under the ‘Songdog’ identity. Over the course of the record’s 15 tracks, Lyndon continues his exploration of his favourite themes – the passing of time, lost love, sex, death, ageing and psychic overload.

In addition to fellow Songdog regular Karl ‘Pod’ Woodward, who provides the distinctive Mellotron sound that peppers the album – and also designed the cover art – Lyndon is joined by several guest musicians, including Mathew Conner on drums, backing vocalist Colleen McCarthy and producer Alex Franklinos on bass.

Lyndon’s tracks have been featured on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6Music plus other regional and international shows, he has recorded a session for Tom Robinson’s show and had his music praised by the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Robert Wyatt.
