morgxn “home”, a familiar song stripped to an authentic level

Very cool performance piece from morgxn who I first discovered working for a publisher having to do metadata as an intern.  It’s a good song you’ve maybe heard before, unfortunately I won’t be doing a write up because of the Christmas season so find below quotes about this cool track.

“morgxn about “home”:

“home is a feeling you get when you’re with the people that understand you completely. it’s not always family – sometimes it’s a lifelong journey to find the places and spaces where you feel most yourself. joshua tree has always been a place i come back to. it’s one of the only places where the silence is so loud you don’t need to overthink it.”

WALK THE MOON’s nick about “home”:

“When i first heard morgxn’s voice, first experienced his music, i knew instantly he was one of my all-time favorite artists. That was the night we met, when he was morgan-with-an-“a”, and he was just sharing some demos he’d been working on. I was mesmerized by his angelic tone and his courageous ability to go deeply, darkly vulnerable.

“home” is one of those first ideas he shared with me, and today i get to be a part of it with WALK THE MOON. This song is one of those universal stories to which any human being can relate. Personally it reminds me of the new home i’m seeking to create for myself, the one without parents or training wheels, where I can feel strong on my own.”

 

This spring, morgxn released his debut album vital featuring “home (over 10MM streams) and a Robert Smith-approved cover of The Cure’s “boys don’t cry.”  Additionally, his song “carry the weight” was the soundtrack to HBO’s chill-inducing “Share The Love” PRIDE campaign HERE. The past year saw morgxn touring with Dreamers and Weathers, in addition to a performance supporting How To Dress Well. Previously, morgxn has toured with Phoebe Ryan, Skylar Grey, miike snow and X Ambassadors.”
