About Gustafer Yellowgold

The music and ‘moving art’ of Gustafer Yellowgold was created and performed by 2x GRAMMY™ nominated artist, Morgan Taylor. The Ohio native transplanted to New York City in 1999, melding his artistic passions of cartooning and songwriting in what began as children’s picture books starring the yellow, friendly Sun alien. Gustafer has earned widespread critical acclaim from such media stalwarts as The New York Times, which described Gustafer as “a cross between ‘Yellow Submarine’ and Dr. Seuss,” and Entertainment Weekly, which characterized the music as "infectious" and "absurdly appealing." Gustafer Yellowgold, originally from the sun, is a shining example of the brilliance of Morgan Taylor, and though he may be gone into oblivion, Gustafer Yellowgold will stay with us forever.

About Morgan Taylor

Two-time GRAMMY-nominated musician, artist, illustrator, and dreamer Morgan Taylor (1969-2022) created Gustafer Yellowgold for the delight of all. Since the first album was released in 2005, countless children and families have enjoyed the songs that tell the story of Gustafer Yellowgold’s whimsical journey from the sun to earth, and how he built a life there with his new-found friends. These songs reveal the inner soul, thoughts, and emotions of a charming character for all to relate to, resulting in a loyal and loving fanbase. For 17 years, children and families came, over and over, to Gustafer Yellowgold shows from coast to coast and almost everywhere in between, as well as across the ocean in the UK, and even once in Seoul, South Korea.
