Biography

“Maverick recording artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Blake Morgan’s studio chops, smart lyrics, and gift for the melodic twist have earned him a loyal critical and commercial following.”?—All Music Guide

Now, Morgan returns with the Summer 2013 release of his new album, Diamonds In The Dark (ECR Music Group).

Billboard Magazine writes, “Morgan has a voice that was made to be heard on the radio . . . inspired songwriting and passionate performances.” The Washington Post adds, “He’s got killer pop-rock instincts, something that leaps out at you . . . a natural when it comes to fashioning sharp melodies and catchy choruses.”

Native New Yorker Morgan has juggled multiple commercial and artistic successes as national recording artist, award-winning producer, and label-founder, all since courageously freeing himself from a seven-record deal with Phil Ramone’s N2K-Sony label over a decade ago.

The move would prove to be serendipitous, as Morgan would go on to form his own label born from humble beginnings in a one-room makeshift recording studio and office and launched on Morgan’s laptop computer. That label has since flourished with Morgan’s idealism at its core to become the globally distributed family of artists and labels it is today—ECR Music Group.

“Music is so relevant and so important to what it means to be human. It reminds us what we’re fighting for,” says Morgan.

The acclaim for his previous albums Anger’s Candy, Burning Daylight, and Silencer has fueled the anticipation for this new album’s release—an album Morgan feels is both the culmination of the journey he’s taken, and the most visceral and powerful of his work to date. “I think that when you write about something specific that’s honest about what you’re going through, there’s a much greater chance that it will lend itself to other people and what they’re going through. And I think that some of the best art does that.”

Diamonds In The Dark will be released exclusively on iTunes June 18th, 2013, and everywhere else music is sold and streamed July 30th, on ECR Music Group.
