“I think the universe opened up for me in that moment,” morgxn says of writing
his sultry, yearning debut single “love you with the lights on.” “Everything I wrote
afterwards was silently anchored by this one moment.” Since then, morgxn has
been working on songs for an upcoming EP and album that he will release
through his label, wxnderlost records. “wxnderlost is a reminder for me that even
when you think you know where you’re going, or even when you’re somewhere
you want to be, it can all change in an instant. wxnderlost reminds me that the
journey is the best part.”
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.”
