Smallpools with Morgxn
November 2, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Nashville/LA indie-rockers Smallpools erupted onto the scene with their head turning opening statement, “Dreaming” (now RIAA Certified Gold). The song surged to the top of the HypeMachine chart; quickly earning the band support from alternative radio stations across the country, multiple late night television appearances and a home on the road as the opening act for Twenty One Pilots, Walk the Moon, Grouplove and Two Door Cinema Club on their national tours. Smallpools then released their acclaimed, debut album LOVETAP! and spent the majority of the next two years selling out venues nationwide in support of its release.
Alternative singer/songwriter Morgxn combines electronic atmospherics with a sensual R&B-influenced delivery, similar to Oh Wonder, Jack Garratt, Jon Bellion, and Bishop Briggs. Born in Nashville, the soulful artist grew up surrounded by music, guided by his grandfather, a former vaudeville singer. Based in both New York City and Los Angeles, Morgxn signed with Wxnderlost Records and released his debut track, “Love You with the Lights On,” in 2016. Later that year, he issued a cover of Duran Duran’s “Notorious” and the thumping rocker “Home.” The popularity of the latter — which spawned remixes by LEFTI, Joywave, and Toy Armada — helped the artist exceed four million online streams. In 2017, he issued “XX” and “Hard Pill to Swallow.” The full-length Vital arrived in 2018, with the stripped-down Vital: Blue EP arriving in January 2019. A pair of singles — “A New Way” and “Omm!” — arrived later that year. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
