Morgan James BIO

New York-based soul singer, songwriter, and Broadway actress Morgan James.



Part of Morgan's creative trajectory has become centered around her full album cover projects. She covered D'Angelo's Black Messiah one month after its release, Jeff Buckley's Grace and a critically acclaimed full cover of Joni Mitchell's Blue.


Her latest studio album, Reckless Abandon, is her first as an independent artist, and it is her most personal outing yet, prompting the Huffington Post to call MJ the "Brightest Breakout Artist of the Year". Morgan assumed co-writing duties on all twelve tracks and sang all her own background vocals.


In addition to her studio albums Reckless Abandon and Hunter, Morgan has released a live tribute to her idol, Nina Simone, Morgan James Live, as well as an EP featuring some of her fan's favorite covers, YouTube Sessions. (She can also be heard on countless theatre and concept soundtracks). Morgan is proud to note that no vocal tuning of any kind has been used on any of her albums.

Morgan's videos on YouTube have accumulated more than 150 million views (and climbing). With viral sensation Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox, Morgan toured the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. She is currently on the road touring with her band!
