Los Angeles-based artist morgxn is out on tour this month, opening for Great Good Fine Ok whom he toured with last year. The 16-date tour’s next stop is in Los Angeles on Saturday June 3rd and will go to San Diego, Austin, Atlanta and back up through North + South Carolina and Washington, ending with 2 shows in New York. morgxn previously toured with Skylar Grey and opened up for Miike Snow, played high-profile SXSW showcases and opened for X Ambassadors in Los Angeles for their Planned Parenthood fundraiser.

morgxn has received praise from a wide variety of publications such as V magazine, Billboard, NYLON, Alternative Press, FLAUNT, Popjustice and support from radio stations like KCRW and SiriusXM, besides steadily gaining listeners for his single “home” (over 4m on Spotify) “love you with the lights on”, “hard pill to swallow” and “xx”.

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.”
