Today, Los Angeles artist morgxn reveals a third track “hard pill to swallow” leading up to the fast approaching inauguration date. The singer-songwriter premiered the track exclusively via Billboard HERE, alongside announcing his debut release vital EP later this year (date tba) 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”.
This year, morgxn heads down to SXSW for multiple showcases and will play Neon Gold’s Popshop on Friday 1.20 in Brooklyn. 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.”
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.
Recent praise for morgxn:
“morgxn’s lyrics are not only authentic, but also passionate and complex.” – V Magazine
“xxxx” – FLAUNT
“You need to know” – Alternative Press
“an achingly beautiful track” – Impose Magazine
“The Nashville native’s career is on the rise” – Billboard

FORTRESSES is an American community band founded in 2013 and made up of highly qualified musicians.

Jolynn J Chin Goes ‘Beyond Classical’ & Transforms Instrumental Music Into Something Fresh
When it comes to talking about music, I’m very open-minded to explore innovative proposals. This is the case of Jolynn J Chin whose ‘Beyond Classical’ EP is up for Grammy consideration this year. Certainly, she brings fresh air into the world of Instrumental music. First of all, she’s a piano-playing prodigy that unlike other classically trained artists has opted for modernity. Without a doubt, there’s a good balance between traditional elements and contemporary ones like Electronica and Pop.
The set of arrangements provide many added values in each track. For instance, if you’re a fan of Michael Jackson, then you’ll be glad to hear her genuine “Billie Jean” cover. While the chilled vibe of “Danza Hungara” is going to take you on a haunting nostalgic journey. That’s not to say there aren’t intense moments. In fact, her very own energetic version of “Toccata” sends shivers down your spine. All in all, ‘Beyond Classical’ is pure perfection!

Introducing Derek Lai And His Modern Acoustic Pop
Singer/Songwriter Derek Lai is one of those indie artists that create emotions with music. Lately, I think only a handful of new talents from Canada have done it successfully like himself. What’s more, most of his songs are a synonym of modern acoustic Pop like his recent single “Empty-Handed”. Of course, the spontaneity of the moment is a fundamental part of his creative process. Not to mention, he puts to work his imagination when it comes to creating stories that become authentic songs. All in all, his signature sound isn’t quite the same without splendid guitar arrangements. Wanna give it a try? Then stream in full “Empty-Handed” mixed by George Seara, who has worked with artists like Shawn Mendes and more big names in the industry.
