Morgan Ågren has been a drummer since age four. Born in Umeå, Sweden, Mr. Ågren was spotted as an outstanding talent at a young age as he began performing publicly at age seven, and eventually joined forces with Mats Öberg in 1981. They later formed Zappsteetoot together in 1984, a band internationally known for performing Zappa's music. In 1988, Morgan Ågren age 20 was, along with Mats, invited by Frank Zappa to do a guest performance at Mr. Zappa's Stockholm peformance. Blown away by his skills, Mr. Zappa invited Morgan to the States to partake in several projects, including the 1994 Grammy Award winning CD "Zappa's Universe" with Steve Vai as well as a sold out New York performance of Zappa's classical program at Lincoln Centers Great Performers Series at Avery Fisher Hall . Morgan also shares the drummers seat with Terry Bozzio on Dweezil Zappa 's album "Shampoohorn". In 1996 Morgan has toured throughout Europe as member of Glen Hughes band, and later to Japan in 1997. 1996 also saw the formation of Morgan Ågren's own record label Ultimate Audio Entertainment, dedicated to the release of "new" music.
