We are grateful to Morgan Tifft, a Hinckley native working on a documentary about Hinckley,
who collected and shared photos for our digital archives.

Morgan has been playing, writing, mixing, and recording for almost 10 years. A graduate of Western Washington University’s Audio Technology, Music and Society program, he has been working hard to build the best studio possible (Highlander Studio), doing everything from the construction to the engineering DIY to fully understand both the space and the technology. Born and raised in northeast Ohio, Morgan played with multiple different bands with performances at historic Cleveland venues such as The Grog Shop, The Foundry, and even a solo piano performance at New York’s Carnegie Hall when he was a kid.

This is an ever-evolving page. Check back regularly to see and learn more.
