Blake Morgan’s sold-out four-year run of concerts at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall has fueled an extraordinary string of recent headlining performances for the artist around the globe: nearly 200 concerts across 110,000 miles of touring on both sides of the Atlantic.
Morgan’s performances have not only become a New York City word-of-mouth sensation—he regularly features Grammy and Tony Award-winning special guests who join him for unique on-stage collaborations—they’ve become a sensation on the road too, where he’s sold out concerts across the United States, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe.
There’s no sign of slowing down for the artist—the new 2019–2020 season of Morgan’s artist-in-residence concert series at Rockwood Music Hall runs from September 19th through May 14th. Simultaneously, Morgan will be back out on the road headlining a string of U.S. and European dates.
The Washington Post writes, “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.” Billboard Magazine adds, “Blake Morgan has a voice that was made to be heard on the radio . . . inspired songwriting and passionate performances.”
Native New Yorker Blake Morgan is a recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and the founder and President of ECR Music Group (SONY/Orchard), a global music company that operates under an elemental principle unprecedented in the music world: all of its artists and labels own one-hundred percent of their master recordings.
Morgan’s ideas, opinions, and editorials on music have been published regularly, including by The New York Times, Billboard Magazine, CNN, Newsweek, Variety, 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.
