Thomas Martin "Tom" Morgan (born 3 March 1970) is an Australian musician and songwriter. He fronted the 1990s indie pop group, Smudge (1991–present). He has written or co-written (with Evan Dando) songs for Boston power pop group, the Lemonheads.[1][2] Morgan's other bands include Sneeze (1993–2006, 2009-present), The Givegoods, Godstar (1991–95), Tofu Kok and Bambino Koresh (ca. 2012). He married Argentine-Spanish musician, Leticia Nischang (Sneeze, Bambino Koresh).[3][4] As of September 2010, Morgan and Nischang were living in Maitland.[5]

On 4 March 2013 Morgan issued his solo album, Orange Syringe, with Nischang providing backing vocals.[6] Colleen Walsh-Jervis of Surviving the Golden Age felt that "Because of all of his previous work, I went into this album expecting good things. Unfortunately, I wasn't blown away. The lyrics are alright, nothing mind-blowing, and the vocals are pretty rough. There are a couple of good songs, but one makes me physically cringe each time it begins."[6]
