Conversations with The Morn

Today we’d like to introduce you to The Morn.

Hi The Morn, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I began making beats at the age of 12 after being classically trained in piano as a young child. Growing up in Los Angeles, I was entrenched in the local underground electronic and hip hop music scenes, which heavily influences my sound. After making beats through high school, I studied sound design and jazz in college and began fully producing my own songs after graduating. Exploring ambient, jazz, and trap realms in the past five years, I have released eight EPs and have an infinite well of creativity to source from.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think with every musical project comes its own unique challenges. Before I started releasing music however, I did find it a complex, laborious process to find my own sound, coming from a jazz background where we worship standards. The struggle came from trying to figure out what vibe of sound I want to stick with, paying tribute to past musical techniques while also being original. Staying true to the present and what comes out of existing in the now is how I can access this infinite portal the universe has gifted me with to channel creative forces. The only real obstacles to creating music are the doubt and second-guessing involved in executive decisions, so over time these obstacles become your friend in getting better as an artist.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a music producer and recording artist specializing in songwriting, beatmaking, and soundscape building. My work is to make records. I have lots of experience editing and mixing to find the ideal sound, so I’m most proud of my ear and ability to use instruments and software to reach a visionary destination. What sets me apart from others is my relentless obsession to take infinite musical concepts and guide them through to completion.

Are there any apps, books, podcasts, blogs or other resources you think our readers should check out?
I’m a huge podcast guy so my main podcasts are Pensado’s Place, Song Exploder, and Broken Record, for anything musical, but also the Ultimate Health Podcast for anything related to optimizing health and well-being.
