Morgan calls herself an accidental tourist in the music industry.  Discovered by her Manager, Jill Pavel (Victory Music Buzz, LLC) in 2017 on social media, she quickly found herself in uncharted territory.  Pavel states, "Someone sent me a video of Morgan playing keys and singing an original song. Her distinctive vibrato and soothing vocal delivery had me at hello.  I do not seek out talent for my label, but in Morgan's case I knew I was listening to something unique and special."  Her song haunted me for weeks.  It was a no brainer signing her into development and then bringing her onto our talent roster. I think the world is ready to embrace Morgan and all of her unique, quirky and wonderous artistry that she brings to every track on her EP."
