Powerhouse vocalist, singer-songwriter Morgan Myles is one of those artists that makes it look and sound so easy. Morgan has earned critical acclaim from outlets such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, and CMT for the way 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.
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 big influence on her upcoming album. “Last year, I had a lot of hardships that took a lot for me to emotionally and mentally overcome, but my mission in life musically and personally has never been more clear.”
“Music is my Therapy...my place of healing and happiness. I want to connect with my listeners on a deeper level so they know they are not alone. Music is our one intimate universal language.”
