New Music Alert: Morgxn
SOUNDS LIKE: A sexier + edgier version of Oh Wonder and Jon Bellion
We recently had this song land in our inbox and it’s one of those jams you keep on repeat while you’re flipping the bird to your past relationships. Aye.
From his bio courtesy of Gold Atlas:
“morgxn’s journey began in his hometown of Nashville where his earliest musical memories are singing with his mom. ‘I could hold melodies before I could talk,’ he says. By age six, morgxn was a ‘small, chubby Jewish kid dominating the gospel choir’ (as he puts it.) At age nine, he began taking voice and piano lessons and writing songs. After college, he made his way to New York City where he dabbled in theatre. ‘Theater unlocked my sense of empathy,’ morgxn says. ‘I could see myself in the characters I was playing, but when youtell someone else’s story for so long, you start to lose your own.'”
“Now telling his own stories, morgxn is drawn to writing about human resilience in his fearless, vulnerable, electronic-soul songs: ‘How we pull ourselves back up even when we’re knocked down a thousand times,’ he says. ‘I’m chasing the tension of wanting love, having it, and needing more. It’s that desire to go beyond the surface.'”
