One of our October featured artists is Morgan St. Jean!
Morgan St. Jean is a singer- songwriter with a unique and soulful voice whose lyrics touch audiences with their truth and beauty. Having always been intrigued as to why people love, lie, fight, and feel so many different things, the young artist has spent her time exploring the human condition through songwriting. She is currently a student in the prestigious Popular Music Program at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. At USC, St. Jean has taken master classes with David Foster, Smokey Robinson, Earth Wind and Fire, Benny Blanco, and Randy Jackson. David Foster praised Morgan’s lyric writing ability when she was asked to improvise with him and Randy Newman has said that her songs are mature and catchy.

In the second grade, she auditioned for her first choir and became the featured soloist and sang for the Pope in Rome. At nine years old she began writing lyrics and has written countless songs since then.
Morgan recently released a single entitled “Addicted” which was featured on various music blogs. Described as “a hauntingly poignant ballad” and “pure raw passion,” her debut single deemed her an up and coming artist to watch. Her highly anticipated second single “Drown” is set to be released in November.
