Shaun Morgan Early Life and Career

Shaun Morgan studied at Maritzburg College in Pietermaritzburg,for his first three years of high school he was a prolific front-row rugby player for his age-group’s top teams. n his third year of playing rugby he injured his back and he was unable to play anymore.
Due to his back injury he would not play rugby anymore and e developed a passion for playing the guitar. At the age of 14, he discovered the Seattle grunge movement after listening to Nirvana’s Nevermind album, which inspired him to become a musician. He later became a member of a tribute band, tributing songs of bands such as Creed and Tom Petty.
In May 1999 he became the rhythm guitarist and back-up vocalist of a new band, Saron Gas. The Saron Gas consisted of four other members a female vocalist, a lead guitarist, bassist and drummer.However, when the singer and guitarist did not turn up to the first practice, the band decided to stay as a three-piece, with Welgemoed on lead vocals and guitar.
Saron Gas enjoyed moderate success before the bass player decided to quit in January 2000, causing Welgemoed to get in touch with the only other good bass player he knew, Dale Stewart. The band released an album later that year, entitled Fragile.
In January 2002, the band relocated to the United States to sign with Wind-up Records. During this time the band’s original drummer left to return home to South Africa, whilst the two remaining members were left to think of a new band name, at the request of Wind-up. Eventually they settled on Seether, after the Veruca Salt song of the same name. Around this time, Morgan decided to use his middle name as his last name professionally while performing for Seether because Americans have a hard time pronouncing “Welgemoed”. Seether went on to release their debut major-label album, Disclaimer, on 20 August 2002.
