Vermont native Morgan Page began making electronic music at the age of 12. After gaining the attention of jockeys at local free-form radio stations, Page -- prior to graduating from high school -- began DJing himself on the University of Vermont's station.
There, his horizons and knowledge about dance music broadened significantly, especially when it came to house. After taking up an internship at the Plastic City
label, Page initiated a steady release schedule that saw a handful of 12" singles scattered each year from 2000 through 2006. In addition to appearing on labels like Nordic Trax
, and Force Tracks
, Page remixed singles for Terry Lee Brown, Jr.
, Ashlee Simpson
, and Men, Women & Children
took note and signed Page for the release of 2008's Elevate, a collection of remixes and original songs. The following year he collaborated with folk singer Lissie
on the single "The Longest Road," which was nominated for a Grammy award. As his reputation grew with 2010's Believe and a second Grammy nomination for his remix of Nadia Ali
's "Fantasy," he continued to tour, making festival appearances at Coachella and Electric Zoo and headlining A-list clubs. His fourth album, In the Air, arrived in 2012 and the title track reached number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay chart. He held down a three-year residency at The Wynn in Las Vegas then moved to Light at Mandalay Bay just prior to the release of his fifth album, 2015's DC to Light, which featured guest appearances from Angela McCluskey
