An unknown 17-year-old singer-songwriter goes from Novi to solo at Hollywood's House of Blues
Published: May 2, 2012
Next year, Morgan heads to Arizona State University to study business law. "I mean, I hope to be a famous musician someday," she says, "but I chose a major that I thought could benefit me either as a normal person in the street or as a professional musician.
I've been [balancing music and school] for the last four years. There's no code on how to do. It's one of those things you have to suck up and say 'OK, I'm not going to have a social life.'"
These are eventful times for Morgan. As you read this, she'll be in L.A., nominated for four indie music awards. "I'm playing the afterparty at the House of Blues in Hollywood," she says. "There's a social network for upcoming bands and artists called the Indie Music Channel. The creator of it, Christopher Ewing, is also a radio host, and two of my songs were really popular on his show. He called me up and asked if I wanted to play. I don't know how I got nominated for the awards, but it's nice."
Indeed. Morgan deserves a shot.
