Powerhouse vocalist, singer-songwriter Morgan Myles is one of those artists that makes it look and sound so easy. The soulful artist and Pennsylvania native has already earned critical acclaim from outlets such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, and CMT for the way that she seamlessly blends her own brand of Soul, Pop and Rock. Myles’ booming voice can be heard alongside recording artist Cody Johnson’s current single “Nothing On You.” Needless to say, her influences run all over the map.
Growing up, she listened to Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi, while admiring the likes of Eva Cassidy and Carole King because of their songwriting. “I was influenced by any woman that had a big voice because I wanted to be just like them. You name it – any diva – I was trying to imitate,” she says with boundless energy and enthusiasm.
A natural songwriter herself, Myles’ songs display themes of strength, perseverance and empowerment. Shaped greatly from her years as a nanny-turned-guardian to the children of a woman named Amy, who passed away from ALS, Myles writes from a deeper life perspective. More recently, Myles lost her 33 year old close cousin to brain cancer, which she notes had a lot of influence over her debut album. “I’ve had a lot of hardships and it took a lot for me to emotionally and mentally overcome, but my mission in life musically and personally has never been more clear.”
After working tirelessly to release her album “Therapy”, she is ready to spread her message for the good that music can do. The vulnerable singer-songwriter proves that music has remained her 'Therapy' throughout her ups and downs with her massive 5 octave vocal range. Empowering anthems like 'Empire' and 'Silence,' heavy soul ballads like 'Sanctuary,' 'I Believe,' and 'Therapy' and the raw stripped down 'Suffocate Me,' will let you in on Myles' life story as she wrote her way through a challenging situation. Award winning producers Corey Crowder and Jason Mater teamed up to capture Myles' music in a fresh new way. Myles states "I hope this music ultimately connects and helps people to heal."
