morgxn: “XX” (WATCH)

Published

on

The Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter morgxn has dropped the video for his single “xx” (pronounced ‘kiss-kiss’) from his soon-to-be-released debut EP vital. The song touches on topics that are close to morgxn’s heart, with Impose Magazine calling it “an achingly beautiful track” and V Magazine saying lyrics were “not only authentic, but also passionate and complex”. “xx” premiered on The Line of Best Fit which described “channeling Fleetwood Mac”.

morgxn tells The Line of Best Fit: “we are born into this world knowing how to love. but we forget, every day, that it’s our right to feel it. to receive it. XX is reclaiming that for myself. this song was the genesis of my project. it came from years of searching and wandering and creating. X marks the spot… so they say. to me, an X is all about transitions and crossroads, and finally claiming that transition for myself.”

“xx” is available through most online outlets, including Amazon and iTunes.

Cameron Hawthorn: “Dancing in the Living Room”

Published

Cameron Hawthorn

Kansas-based country singer Cameron Hawthorn dropped the video for his latest single, “Dancing in the Living Room”; his first release since coming out to his fans on social media back in November 2018.

The video features intimate scenes of several couples dancing together in their home — including a lesbian couple, a senior couple and Hawthorn with his partner.

“I remember always thinking how special it was to dance freely with my boyfriend in the living room of our apartment — being gay, it’s not as easy to dance as a couple in public together as it is for a straight couple,” Hawthorn told The Advocate. “I wanted to express how special that moment is for a couple, when it’s just the two of you in the privacy of your own four walls.”

Hawthorn originally came out on social media back in November 2018 after watching Boy Erased.

“I just saw two movies, two nights in a row. The first was Boy Erased, last night. I saw it with one of my friends who is gay. This movie is about standing up for who you are in the face of people who want to deny you of your truth. My friend does that each and every day. And I’m proud to call him a friend because of that and much more.

“But you see, I’m also gay. And I haven’t felt like I could say that proudly until very recently. My journey getting here has taken many years and hasn’t been easy. There has been a lot of confusion, doubt, heartbreak and pain along the way. But also a lot of freedom, openness, and love. I’m so happy that I can finally stand proud in being who I am. And owning that whole-heartedly.

“I sadly and narrow-mindedly used to think that when people “came out”, they had lost themselves, given themselves up to the wrong “sinful” side, and just simply given up. But that is actually the complete opposite of what coming out is. It’s finding yourself, understanding yourself more fully, believing that you were made exactly the way you were supposed to be made.

“Seeing Boy Erased made me feel that undeniable feeling even more.”

Wrote this last night and keep rereading it and rereading it. But here we go: Let me first say as I type this, I’m not sure if I’ll actually post it. But I’ve been wanting to for so long and I hope I do because it’s time. I just saw two movies, two nights in a row. The first was Boy Erased, last night. I saw it with one of my friends who is gay. This movie is about standing up for who you are in the face of people who want to deny you of your truth. My friend does that each and every day. And I’m proud to call him a friend because of that and much more. But you see, I’m also gay. And I haven’t felt like I could say that proudly until very recently. My journey getting here has taken many years and hasn’t been easy. There has been a lot of confusion, doubt, heartbreak and pain along the way. But also a lot of freedom, openness, and love. I’m so happy that I can finally stand proud in being who I am. And owning that whole-heartedly. I sadly and narrow-mindedly used to think that when people “came out”, they had lost themselves, given themselves up to the wrong “sinful” side, and just simply given up. But that is actually the complete opposite of what coming out is. It’s finding yourself, understanding yourself more fully, believing that you were made exactly the way you were supposed to be made. Seeing Boy Erased made me feel that undeniable feeling even more. Tonight I saw Bohemian Rhapsody, the life story of Freddie Mercury. As an artist, I’m blown away and inspired beyond words. As a gay artist, I’m so ready to tell my story and sing my truth to the world. I am, have always been and will always be Cameron. I’m so ready for the ride ahead and THANK YOU and LOVE YOU to those who have been by my side through it all. Another great movie if you haven’t seen it…Won’t You Be My Neighbor? “Nobody else can live the life you live. And even though no human being is perfect, we always have the chance to bring what’s unique about us to live in a redeeming way.” -Mr. Rogers ❤️

U.K. artist and songwriter Calum Scott releases a video for his latest single, “No Matter What.” The video was directed by Ozzie Pullin, who also directed Calum’s video for “What I Miss Most.”

The powerfully emotional video for “No Matter What,” details Calum’s journey of acceptance both of himself and of his family. It’s the perfect accompaniment to “No Matter What,” which Calum calls “without question, the most personal song I have ever written and the one I am most proud of. It’s a song born from loneliness and the heartbreaking but liberating tale of my coming-out experience. What I love about this song is that it isn’t just limited to a story of sexual identity, but about the relationship between parent and child and acceptance as a whole.”

Calum will release a Special Edition of his breakout debut album Only Human on November 30th. The album includes Calum’s hit single “You Are The Reason,” which is already certified Gold and has amassed almost 1 billion streams worldwide with over 330 million combined video views alone. His track “What I Miss Most,” which unfolds as a triumphant homage to his Northern England hometown, and version of “White Christmas” are both out now and available on the Special Edition album.

Billboard said, “Scott’s stunningly pure voice is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of the [album’s] tracks are vulnerable and raw.” The Huffington Post says, “Calum Scott makes an impressive splash with his compelling debut album.” Calum was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single, for his version of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which became a global sensation with over 1.5 billion streams worldwide, and is now Platinum in five countries.

Local Austin songwriter Adrian Conner has released the video for the single “Unspeakable” from her latest EP, Spaz Kitty, released this past May. The video and song speak to the dynamics being in a ongoing three way way relationship of which I spent 5 years exploring,” explains Conner.

“The actual song lyrics are about an unwanted crush or unwanted romantic attention regardless of gender boundaries. ‘I’m not your girlfriend. I’m a Goddess.’ As the pop melody unfolds the intensity of band kicks up and crescendos into a dissipating electronic beat with the heartbroken lines. ‘You make me wanna disappear into sound’ Because music is the ultimate escape from an impossible situation if you let it.”

“Unspeakable” is on the Spaz Kitty EP, available through most online outlets, including Amazon and iTunes.

The five songs from the Spaz Kitty EP explore combining electronic music with the full on rock band. Conner explains, “Experimenting with DAW’s has opened up songwriting for me and enabled me to be more prolific than ever before.”

Her affection for all things rock n’ roll is evidenced by the fact that she has spent 17 years as the lead guitarist in Hell’s Belles, the highly touted all female AC/DC tribute band from Seattle. She serves in a similar capacity for the Judas Priest tribute Belles Bent For Leather. And most recently the exciting pair up of fellow tribute band pioneer Clementine of Zepparella to form the Dream Pop band Beaux Cheveux.
