The three performed at a local psychedelic youth club, the Green Onion, and at Legion Halls and church functions. This short-lived group covered bands such as Led Destroyer - Various - Greatest AOR Hits: Portrait Of A Decade (Vinyl and Cream.
West and Morse continued to play as a duet billed as the Dixie Dregs until Morse's expulsion from school in the 10th grade. This expulsion enabled his enrollment at the University of Miami School of Music. During the s, the University of Miami played host to a number of future influential musicians, including Bruce HornsbyPat Methenyand Jaco Pastorius. Inthe group compiled a recording used for promotional efforts. From late to earlyMorse worked as a commercial airline co-pilot.
A fellow University of Miami alumnus, Rod Morgensteinreplaced the injured Bart Yarnold and the band began performing regularly; with some of their own compositions, along with covers of John McLaughlin and southern rock favourites. An increasingly heavier performance schedule eventually led to the attention of Capricorn Records recruiters including Allman Brothers Band manager Twiggs Lyndon and, in latethe group was signed by the southern rock label. Their first effort for Capricorn, Free Fallestablished Morse as an important newcomer to the fusion genre, and he was recognised for both his compositional skills having written all 11 tracks and his musicianship.
Although receiving positive reviews as a pivotal jazz fusion album, it sold poorly. What If was released in Writing credits were more collaborative and the band's sound had matured into more than what was strictly considered fusion at the time.
Southern rock, classical, folk and country elements were combined to form a cohesive and listenable music. Though supported by a tour, record sales remained flat, but gained Morse and the band an invitation to perform at Montreux Jazz Festival on July 23, The recorded performance was released the following year on Night of the Living Dregs.
Capricorn went bankrupt in lateand the Dixie Dregs were left without a label. Arista Records signed the band in to record three albums. Production control was handed to Morse, and Dregs of the Earth was released in May All eight tracks were written by Morse, and the album peaked at number 27 on Billboard 's Jazz Album Chart. Arista became increasingly concerned about Dixie Dregs' album sales and pressured the band to change their name to simply the Dregs in an attempt to increase the band's visibility in the public eye.
Unsung Heroes included eight new Morse compositions in earlybut the name change did little to address Arista's worries. The Dregs felt compelled by label management to add lyrics to their next release, appropriately titled Industry Standard.
Morse's compositions on Industry Standard began to sound more like his evolving solo work than Dregs' collaborations, and the album received critical and public praise. Additionally, Morse was voted "Best Overall Guitarist" in the same poll, an honour that he would hold for five consecutive years which ended his eligibility by retiring him into their "Gallery of Greats", a distinction shared only by Steve Howe of Yes and Eric Johnson.
After fulfilling their commitment to Arista, the Dregs' members, who had tired of touring, disbanded in early In the late s, the group reunited for a tour featuring former members Morse, Morgenstein, Lavitz and Sloan. Bassist Dave LaRue completed the line-up for a seven date tour culminating in the live album Bring 'em Back Alive.
Violinist Jerry Goodmanof the Mahavishnu Orchestra fame, filled in for Sloan, who was frequently absent as a result of his medical career. They signed a deal with former label Capricorn Records for their first studio album in years entitled Full Circle in After the first tour of the eastern United States, Morgan left for previous commitments; the choice to replace Morgan was Rod Morgenstein.
They began recording The Introduction in September. The group toured Germany in early with Morse conducting clinics, and the group was signed by Elektra Recordswho released The Introduction mid-year.
A second German tour began in December and Stand Up was released in He toured with Rush as a main opener on their Power Windows tour. InMorse joined the rock group Kansas. During his time with the band they released two albums, Power and In the Spirit of Things. While he was with the band, Kansas had its last big hit, "All I Wanted," which reached the Billboard Top 20 and on which Morse received co-writing credit. Morse left the band after touring behind the latter album. He re-joined the band for part of its tour.
In Spring it was reported that Steve Morse and Bob Daisley started work on a new studio album which was set for a release inbut nothing came of this. Morse began a collaboration with singer Sarah Spencer in entitled Angelfire. The album, of the same name, was released on August 10, on Radiant Records.
The album has a textural, acoustic sound that differs from Morse's previous work. Morse is considered one of the hardest working guitarists in the world. He is regularly cited by John Petrucci as a major influence. Guitarist Shawn Lane regarded Steve Morse as one of the most talented guitarists of his time.
A lot of people try to get some wisecrack out of me, but when you're LP about guitar players along Morse's caliber, they're brilliant. He is well known for using harmonics and improvising them in songs during live performances, such as in Deep Purple's " Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming ".
Throughout the s Morse was using a custom "frankentele" guitar, made up of a Tele body with a Strat neck, a Gibson trapeze-style tailpiece coming from a twelve string guitar and four pickups in HSSH configuration.
At one time, the guitar had a fifth pickup, a hexaphonic pickup with a separate output for each string; it provided the signal to drive a Systems Spectre guitar synthesizer.
They are evenly balanced to allow playing all over the fretboard, since Morse plays high notes on the neck pickup and low ones on the bridge. They are the main pickups into his signature model. Dimarzio also wires a custom wound single coil pickup for Music Man to use into the SM signature model.
Morse is an endorser of ENGL amps. It is a three channel amp specially designed by Morse with a custom version of the famous ENGL "midrange matrix".
He splits up his signal to six different cabinets; four dry without any FX and two wet with FX. He uses three Ernie Ball expression pedals to blend the fx into the mix.
