Stephen Lloyd-Morgan is a professionally trained singer and actor, having studied opera at the Welsh College of Music and Drama and Musical Theatre at The Mountview Academy of Performing Arts in London. He has since performed in a number of musicals and operas both in the UK and Ireland.
Since moving to Spain in 2007 Steve has gained widespread popularity and critical acclaim, especially for his after-dinner entertainment evenings and more recently his concert performances, which incorporate a wide ranging repertoire of Musical Theatre, Opera and Cross-over, sung in English, Spanish and Italian. Including numbers such as Nella Fantasia, O Sole Mio, Sunset Boulevard, Granada, Nessun Dorma, Arranjuez Con Tu Amor, Notte Di Luce, The Prayer and Con Te Partiro to name but a few! His recent charity Album also included the more contemporary, with renditions of Hallelujah, Ognuno Soffre (the Italian version of REM’s hit Everybody Hurts), and Dyrchefir Fi (the Welsh version of You Raise Me Up).
From large scale concerts, charity events, or the more intimate after-dinner performance, Steve never fails to enthral an audience with his powerful voice and performance as well as his evident joy and passion! He now has a dedicated following and his performances are often sold out.
“One of the finest discoveries this Costa has ever been blessed with…” – Maurice Boland Talk Radio Europe – December 2009
“Welsh tenor Stephen Lloyd-Morgan delighted the audience with his renditions of You Raise Me Up, Hallelujah and Any Dream Will Do. Stephen kindly agreed to sing at this year´s Marbella Awards in support of Fletcher Falvey. By his third number, he had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand with massed audience participation…. a wonderful performance by Stephen Lloyd-Morgan.” – Essential Marbella Magazine – December 2009
“Rarely, if ever at all, do we literally get World Class entertainment delivered direct to our door step, but we certainly did at The Summer Event held inside El Castillo de la Duquesa on 22nd August (2009). Never before has Manilva seen a show like it! Welsh Tenor Stephen Lloyd-Morgan was most certainly the star of the 280 seat sell-out show…..This was The Event of The Summer, if not the year! Simple as that!!” – Andalucia Life Magazine – September 2009
“Stephen Lloyd-Morgan is the latest singing sensation to sweep the coast, with a host of concerts and after-dinner entertainment shows which went down a storm last year.” – Hi Society Magazine – March 2009
The late renowned Music Impresario Victor O´Gilvie worked in the industry for over 30 years, and organised Concerts for many top international artists along the Costa Del Sol, including BB King, Ray Charles, Gloria Gaynor, Paco de Lucía, Elton John and George Benson. Of Stephen Lloyd-Morgan, Victor wrote, “I have seen many talented singers during the years I’ve been involved in the Music Business, and surely Steve is one of the most talented performers to come through in this particular area (opera & musical theatre) in many years.” – October 2008
Steve’s open and friendly face does not give away how hard he actually works, and how determined he is to succeed. A patriotic Welshman from the Rhondda Valley, South Wales, he is undeniably a born singer and entertainer. A truly dedicated professional, evidently passionate about his art.
Those who have met Steve describe him as shy, quiet and extremely unassuming. It is therefore particularly surprising that this is the same person who sings such breathtakingly powerful songs.
Performing a handful of his repertoire in an evening would be an achievement for many, but to sing such demanding songs relentlessly in English, Spanish or Italian, almost without pause, sometimes for up to two hours, is remarkable.
“I have watched Stephen Lloyd-Morgan grow and develop over an eight year period and I believe he certainly exemplifies the West End´s high standards. Not to mention being a nice guy with a wonderful voice!” – Ian Good – Director Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, currently directing the award-winning musical `Hairspray´. – October 2008

In February 2010 Steve sang and co-produced with his Manager Nick Holland the Charity single “The Prayer for Haiti”. As part of the Costa del Sol “Help Haiti Campaign”, Her Majesty The Queen sent best wishes for the continued success of the Costa del Sol´s fundraising efforts for Haiti. A letter received from Buckingham Palace reads `Her Majesty was interested to learn that the British expatriate community in the Costa del Sol have raised over €20,000 for the Haiti Earthquake Fund…Her Majesty conveys warm good wishes to you and all concerned”. Best wishes were also sent from HRH The Prince of Wales and HM Ambassador to Spain, Giles Paxman. www.slmlive.com/theprayerforhaiti
In June 2010 Steve was accompanied at various concerts and events by a live orchestra, The Marbella Concert Orchestra, with a mixture of Musical Theatre, Opera and Cross-Over, sung in English, Spanish and Italian. Steve´s first performance with the orchestra at The Butterfly Ball, Hotel Puente Romano on 5th June was reviewed as `world class´, `outstanding´, `wowed the audience´. – Sur In English – 11th June 2010
“He has been described as `one of the finest discoveries the Costa has ever seen´ Stephen Lloyd-Morgan did not disappoint when he performed at the first of two concerts in El Castillo de Duquesa” – Olive Press – 30th July 2010
“sensational evening… magical setting… what a fantastic concert” – Sur in English – 30th July 2010
In September 2010, Steve was delighted to accept an invitation to be a part of the Golden Book of the 100 of Marbella, which celebrates Marbella and its entrepreneurs, professionals, businessmen and women who have been contributing to the growth and development of Marbella in the past and particularly in 2010. Steve has been recognised for `his great voice and talent which have made him a true ambassador for Marbella and also for his numerous charity performances´. Although Steve never takes part in charity events to seek any kind of recognition, he nevertheless greatly appreciates this acknowledgement. Steve sang at the Gala to launch this year´s book in October.
Steve is a great supporter of various charities, and regularly dedicates his time and performances to the Cudeca Cancer Hospice, The Rhys Daniels Trust and to Diabetes Research amongst many others.
