So this is my first blog post in my life that's not about vegan food... Guess I should make use of this thing though. The music that comprises the guts of this website (which has been a long time coming) is what will later come to be referred to as "The Early Recordings" - which is fine by me, people love that shit - as well they should. It's the most bare, lo-fi, honest, and self-reliant that musicians get. No studio, no producers, no nothing. Some of these were recorded on an old 4-track tape recorder through which I could not record drums due to the sheer lack of tracks and/or a giant mixer. Two or three were recorded on a computer, and still others - the majority, in fact - were recorded on cell phones. The fidelity amped up a lot when I went from 2nd generation Blackberry to iPhone 4S (Thx Steve Jobs xoxo). Many were recorded in hospice or hospital settings, and if that doesn't breed emotional intensity, I don't know what does. I have a 4-song studio EP set to start recording soon - these songs will be full-band and I will have producers. However, if you want to know where the songs really came from, this is it. They were written anywhere from age 14 to yesterday. You think you know? You have no idea :) - Morgan PS - In these songs you will hear guitar, drums, bass, piano, and vocal harmonies. Those are all my contributions - no other musicians - except my dubstep song ft. The Computer."
