Even before locking in a debut release, the Nashville born morgxn has received praise from a wide variety of publications such as V magazine, Billboard, NYLON, Alternative Press, FLAUNT, Popjustice and support from radio stations like KCRW and SiriusXM’s AltNation. After steadily gaining listeners for his single “home” (over 2.8m on Spotify) and tracks “love you with the lights on” and “hard pill to swallow”, his debut EP release vital will come out this Spring on wxnderlost records.
morgxn heads down to SXSW for multiple showcases after touring for the first time through North America with Skylar Grey and opening up for Miike Snow in Los Angeles and playing Popshop in New York.
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 you tell 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.”
When morgxn comes through your town, he’ll share and build stories with you, if you let him. Find out why this gent gets people curious by immersing yourself into his music and visuals.
