Raised in the cottonwood desert of Southern Alberta, Morgan embodies everything it means to be a country loving cowgirl in both her music and day to day life. Growing up on the ranch with singer/songwriter Reese Klaiber for a father, her passion for music was instilled at a very young age. The importance of storytelling and music has always been an important part of the cowboy culture and the two are heavily intertwined for her watching Reese write his songs from the back of the horse and seat of the tractor. This ultimately paved the way for her to wear her heart on her sleeve as she began pursuing her own independent career. She now sings her lungs out about her own life’s adventures with her heartfelt writing style and upbeat attitude. Her authenticity and honesty stem from the realities of life as a rancher and being a hardworking female in an old boy’s world. Her powerful, resonant voice paired with her approachable lyrics earns her rapport with every show she plays. Many genres and artists have influenced her style, and although a country artist through and through, she includes these influences along with her country western roots to create the sound and energy you feel and hear as Morgan Klaiber.

Singing harmonies came as naturally as the rhythm did and her performance career began at a very young age alongside Reese. In later years she became a member of the Reese Klaiber Band performing rodeos and festivals as well as opening for Travis Tritt at a local show. She then began branching out on her own as the lead singer of her rock band project, Stolen Horse. Stepping into the genre gave her even more vocal confidence as she learned to really let her hair down and captivate audiences with powerful rockstar vocal notes. The combination of covering songs by bands such as Heart, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and many other classic rock artists, alongside an experienced band of players, earned the group a spot opening for Alberta Legend, Paul Brandt, when his show came to town. But upon moving back to the family ranch, she got together with her old friends back home and became a member of the local country band, Fox and the Hounds. They began making waves covering a wide variety of popular and nostalgic country music, in which Morgan felt it was the right fit to start playing her original work with.

In November, with the help of her down home proper country band, Morgan was awarded the title of the 2023 Ranchman’s Rising Star, which she feels has been one of her most joyous music accomplishments to date. After playing for many years individually, alongside her dad, and with various cover groups, she is now bringing her own music to the table heading for bigger stages, such as Country Thunder Alberta in August 2024. When she’s not belting it out on stage, or singing her favourite songs around the campfire, you’ll find her back home on the family ranch with her dirty boots and hat on, living through another day’s adventure that she might even write a song about.
