“Killer pop-rock.” –The Washington Post
Blake Morgan’s euphoric new single “Baby I Would Want You” is out now on ECR Music Group. “It’s a song unintentionally fitting for the times we find ourselves in,” says Morgan. “It’s an ‘apocalyptic’ love song which declares––in no uncertain terms––that should it all come to an end right now, I’d want to be with you while it does: ‘in a ship that’s built for two / at the end of the world / me and you.’ In truth, what other kind of love song is there, really?”
Morgan is still riding high from his breakthrough singles “Down Below Or Up Above” and “My Love Is Waiting” from earlier this year, each garnering hundreds of thousands of streams for their tracks and accompanying music videos. National music press has noticed too: The Aquarian, “Mesmerizing.” Post-Punk, “Uplifting power-pop. Striking.” Glam Glare, “Instant classic. An exhilarating, almost spiritual experience.” Pop Passion, “Joyfully defiant.” Vents Magazine, “Great lyrics. Urgently flowing music.” Music Injection, “Brilliant.” Culture Catch proclaims Morgan’s style as, “Pop-rock noir. A much-needed antidote.”
This third single from Morgan’s forthcoming album Violent Delights (May 20th, 2022) follows on multiple successes for the artist including his record-breaking concert series in New York, 150,000 miles of touring and sold-out concerts on both sides of the Atlantic, and 20 albums he’s produced and recorded with A-list artists since his own last solo-artist album release.
Morgan’s unprecedented six-year run of sold-out concerts at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall has fueled an extraordinary string of headlining performances for the artist around the globe. Since 2016, Morgan has performed over 200 times while selling out concerts across the United States, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe. Morgan’s Rockwood concerts have become a New York City word-of-mouth sensation, regularly featuring Grammy and Tony Award-winning special guests who join him for unique on-stage collaborations.
In the studio, Morgan has recorded and produced music’s brightest luminaries, from Lenny Kravitz to Lesley Gore. The recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and native New Yorker is also the founder and President of independent global-music company ECR Music Group. His ideas, opinions, and editorials on music have been published regularly by The New York Times, Billboard Magazine, CNN, Newsweek, Variety, The Hill, NME, The Huffington Post, and The Guardian.
He lectures frequently, including at The Georgetown University Law Center, California State University, Syracuse University, NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, American University, and at his alma mater, Berklee College of Music. His music advocacy has taken him to Capitol Hill numerous times where, as the founder of the #IRespectMusic movement, he continues to fight for music makers’ rights in the digital age.
