Morgan Guerin released “Pyramid”, the latest track from his upcoming album Tales of the Facade, slated for release on May 10th under the esteemed Candid Records label, recently relaunched with a new generation of jazz artists.
Renowned as a versatile multi-instrumentalist, Guerin’s musical prowess has placed him prominently on stages alongside notable artists like Chief Adjuah, Alexis Lombre, Gerald Clayton, Esperanza Spalding and Marcus Gilmore, among others, as he embarks with them on select tour dates.


Not only does Guerin shine as a performer, but he also assumes the roles of producer and composer for the entirety of his new album, showcasing his exceptional talents. He has received praise from The New York Times, NPR, and JazzTimes, positioning him as go-to collaborator for a who’s-who of jazz artists including Terri Lyne Carrington & Social Science, Kassa Overall, Esperanza Spalding and Tyshawn Sorey among others.

Tales of the Facade features Guerin’s virtuosic performances on saxophone, bass, electronic wind instrument (EWI), drums, and keys, reflecting his upbringing in a family of musicians and his dedication to his craft. Terri Lyne Carrington has been a significant figure in Guerin’s career, giving him one of his first major professional opportunities as a member of her group Social Science, and as Candid’s A&R consultant she was instrumental in bringing him to the attention of Exceleration Music partner John Burk.


Tales of the Facade, which is an exploration beyond jazz, calls on influences from Wayne Shorter to Kendrick Lamar. It is a raw and honest exploration of identity that addresses societal issues while celebrating community and inclusivity. The album’s title encapsulates the struggle to find authenticity in a world that is dominated by technology. The cover, shot by Guerin’s brother Chase, visually interprets the facade we adopt, urging listeners to unravel their true selves amidst the digital noise.
