This is the first track from his debut EP Vital which is due out sometime this year via on wxnderlost records.

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, besides steadily gaining listeners for his single “home” (over 2.4m on Spotify) and “love you with the lights on”.

morgxn will be playing Neon Gold’s Popshop @ Baby’s All Right this month on Friday January 20th

Later this year, morgen will head down to SXSW for multiple showcases. Last year, he toured for the first time through north american with Skylar Grey and opened up for Miike Snow in Los Angeles.

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.”

This music is reminiscent of The Weekend but margin brings his own sexy and sultry dance pop flair making music that is all his own.
