Our guest this week on the Art of the Song Coffeehouse Podcast is songwriter / artist / producer / label owner, Blake Morgan.
Born and raised in New York City, singer / songwriter / music producer / label owner Blake Morgan began playing the piano and going to music school at age five, with the aim of becoming a professional pianist. At age six his interest began to switch from classical composers such as Mozart and Bartók to The Beatles, after his mother introduced him to Meet The Beatles. Blake's first gig was at CBGB's in New York, when older students from his school recruited him to play in their band. Since he was legally too young for the venue, they smuggled him inside the club in a bass drum case. As the show began, Morgan came out of the case to jump on stage and play the keyboards.
