Morgan Evans was born in 1985 in Newcastle, Australia. The future celebrity attended Warners Bay High School. While studying, Evans fell in love with country music. One of the biggest influences in his life was a famous Australian singer Keith Urban. Together with his younger brother Tom, who played the guitar, and a friend Nicholas Cook, a drummer, Morgan formed a school band Extortion. In 2002, the trio won a local contest Youthrock.
In 2006, the band changed the name to Solver. The same year, it won a prize at Music OZ Awards for Artist of the Year and Best Rock Act.
In 2007, Evans commenced a solo career and won a prize at a contest Telstra Road to Tamworth. His performance was so impressive that a representative of Sony BMG offered Morgan to record an album. Soon the singer presented an EP, Big Skies. The lead single “Big Skies” made it to many Australian country radio stations and helped the young man become popular.
