Nashville-born 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.”
The Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter has dropped his latest single, “Hard Pill to Swallow”. “My dad passed away on September 1, 2015. I flew home immediately to share in his last breath before they took him off life support. I’ll never know if he knew he was waiting until I got there to pass … but he did wait,” morgxn explained. “He held on. And I go to sit there with my brother — now he and I were the men. Our dad was gone.”
“September 3, 2015 we buried him. It was a beautiful celebration. I laughed as much as I cried. I felt so much lover. It was the first burial I had ever been to.
“September 9, 2015 I wrote “Hard Pill to Swallow”.
“A lot can be said about writing but it’s already been said — it is a channeling and a gift. I remember feeling anxious. I was going to be releasing an EP that October. Everything was ‘in place’ and then I lost my ground. I lost my heart. ‘Hard Pill to Swallow’ is about many things. It hurts to say it but it hurts me more to keep it inside.”
