Maverick recording artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Blake Morgan's studio chops, smart lyrics, and gift for the melodic twist have earned him a loyal critical and commercial following.
After signing a seven-record deal in 1997 with Phil Ramone's N2K (Sony/RED) label, resulting in the well-received Anger's Candy, Morgan became disillusioned with the rigid, corporate side of rock & roll. After a successful tour that found him sharing stages with the likes of Joan Jett
and Matchbox Twenty
, he discovered a loophole that would allow him to extricate himself from the contract without too much bloodshed. The move would prove to be serendipitous, as he would go on to form his own independent label, Engine Company Records, in New York City, resulting in 2005's Burning Daylight and 2006's Silencer, and 2013's Diamonds in the Dark. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
