Morgan Taylor (Gustafer Yellowgold)


We are so broken-hearted to share that the incredible Morgan Taylor has left us after a brief and unexpected illness.

Morgan was a loving husband to Rachel, devoted father to Ridley and Harvey and a dear friend to so many.

He was an incredible person who had an impact on countless lives. Morgan saw the world in a truly unique and whimsical way and welcomed us all in to experience it with him.

Morgan's Gustafer Yellowgold songs and artwork captivated multiple generations, earning him two Grammy nominations, Audible‘s award for Best Childrens’ Audiobook, and widespread critical acclaim. His art was described by the New York Times as “a cross between Yellow Submarine and Dr. Seuss,” and Time Magazine called his a “star of kindie rock.” Morgan's memorable melodies, handcrafted illustrations, and whimsical lyrics helped to reimagine the modern children’s music genre for which he will be fondly remembered.

We are asking for your help to assist his family through this devasting and challenging time. All funds will go directly to Rachel, Morgan's wife, to support the family's expenses from his hospital stay through funeral expenses and beyond.

We can't thank you enough for your support - any amount is greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much,
Stephanie, Monica, and Barbara (Morgan's friends)
