A well known Portland daily newspaper columnist once described Ric Seaberg this way: "In a kinder and gentler world, he would have been a rock star."

Ric was front man and lead vocalist for a band that was part of the unique Northwest Rock scene in late 60s & early 70s (that laid the foundation for what became grunge). The Morning Reign played in most large cities and small towns across the Northwest and opened for acts ranging from The Doors to The Guess Who, Buddy Miles to Peter and Gordon, Box Tops to The Animals and Cream.

Ric's music is versatile ranging from blues to country ballads, biting humor to love songs, reggae to flat out rock n roll. There are few who can match his wordsmithing talents (for example, he once rhymed maharaj with garage in a song), his lyrics are distinctive and memorable.

Ric's songs "Didn't Say I Love You Right" and "We Talk About Cars" appear on "Car Talk" cd compilations, produced by National Public Radio's "Car Talk" radio show.
