Great Singer! morgxn opening for Smallpools at The Bottom Lounge (November 13, 2021)

morgxn (pronounced Morgan) opens his set by singing acapella. At first he can’t be heard, but then everyone quiets down to listen. The audience quickly learns that he has a great voice. Soon afterwards he sits down and proceeds to play the keyboard while singing.

Midway through his set he plays a very slow version of Jimmy Eat World’s “Middle”. It works very well and matches his style.

“I’m going back home to the place where I belong, there’s nothing like it” he sings on “home”. He says when he thinks of home, he thinks of live music venues. It’s so great to be back home!

Later on he plays “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. It’s a hit and everyone sings along. It’s clear that he has a wide range of influences.

To close his short set, he plays “WONDER” which he recorded with Sara Bareilles. He released a full album of reimagined versions which includes a version by Smallpools. Written during the pandemic shutdown, this song features this great line “I wonder if anyone will hear this.”

Later on, morgxn returns to the stage for the Smallpools encore to sing the song they wrote together, “Slowdown”. It’s a great song and it’s very cool to see him reappear again on stage. It’s always great when artists that tour together do a colloboration.
