At age five, Morgan began taking lessons and has been studying classical piano for approximately 23 years. Getting her start at the Music Academy of North Carolina, she then went on to graduate from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in December '07 with a major in music. While attending school, Morgan released her first EP on November 29, 2007 entitled “Fragile Little Me,” which she produced herself. After graduating from college, she established Silver Chord Records in January '08. Morgan collaborated with Saul Johnson of Underground Sound in Greensboro for the production of her 1st CD “Stranger in the Mirror.” For her first full length studio album, Morgan’s abilities as a singer-songwriter reflect nothing less than an experienced, seasoned composer exhibiting tempered maturity and great depth. This CD, which was 7 years in the making, was a themed album primarily based on personal experience. Every song is like another page in a storybook telling of love, loss, healing and renewal. Her lyrics are full of hidden metaphors, spiritual references, sexual imagery and a sharp angst. The keyboard is a medium for the expression of the vast emotions, conflicts, and revelations which she shares through her raw lyrics that has an alternative edge with a pop-rock undertone. Although there may be hints of similarities in her music with her major influences, Morgan has a style and voice totally her own that is communicated through her lyrics that challenge your mind and echo through your soul.
