MORGXN SET TO TOUR WITH PHOEBE RYAN THIS FALL

 

morgxn’s new sultry new video for his single “xx” HERE. The visuals take viewers through a dimly lit, sensual, high-energy dance party as morgxn’s smooth falsetto fills the room. The video is directed by MOSES, who also worked with morgxn on his iconic “home” video.

morgxn said about the video concept “i had a lot of feedback from my previous videos that people wanted to see me. they see me in my shows. they see me in my music, but my videos have been purposely left ambiguous. i wanted to let the music be the introduction. the way i look or the way i don’t look isn’t important to what i’m trying to say, but i also recognize that as a fear of mine – a fear that i’m not this or that and so the director Moses really helped me feel like i could push myself and show up for my art.”

Los Angeles-based artist morgxn will hit the road later this year, opening for Phoebe Ryan. morgxn will join the tour in New York City on November 1st. The run will be hitting stops along the east coast in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Toronto,and more before heading to the west coast for shows in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. morgxn previously toured with Great Good Fine OK, Skylar Grey, and opened up for Miike Snow, played high-profile SXSW showcases and opened for X Ambassadors in Los Angeles for their Planned Parenthood fundraiser.

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, besides steadily gaining listeners for his single “home” (over 4m on Spotify) “love you with the lights on”, “hard pill to swallow” and “xx”.

morgxn’s journey began with 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.”
