Growing up in South Jersey, Patrick Droney’s career began with a bang, at age 13 he won a Robert Johnson New Generation Award as “Best Young Blues Guitarist” and began sharing stages with the likes of B.B. King, James Brown, The Roots, Taj Mahal, Macy Gray, and Elvis Costello. Droney became enamored of New York City at an early age, gigging frequently in esteemed Manhattan clubs and eventually attending the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU. He moved to LA and signed a publishing deal, and in 2018 relocated to Nashville to craft a self-titled EP, also making his TV debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers, performing at Barclays Center for Tidal X, and seeing his song “High Hope” featured on Grey’s Anatomy. After signing to Warner Records in 2019, he appeared at Bonnaroo and ACL, collaborated with Kygo, and recently reached the 75 million streams milestone. To craft his full-length debut, Droney pulled inspiration from his life experiences living in multiple places around the country with nods to both his musical heroes and current influences like The National and Bon Iver. With a résumé that reads like a dream, and after extensive touring and playing onstage with some of the all-time legends of blues, pop, rock, and soul, Droney’s STATE OF THE HEART released in May with a DELUXE version available now.
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Morgxn has released MERIDIAN: Vol 2, a completion from previously released EP MERIDIAN: Vol 1. MERIDIAN : vol 2, lead by Jenn Decilveo (Marina, Andra Day)
produced single DON’T THINK ABOUT IT, is centered around navigating the complete unknown. if volume 1 was about how we break and how we lose ourselves, volume 2 is about how we face ourselves, how we build meaning in the rubble, and how we remember who we are in the process of inevitable change.
Morgxn teamed up with The Trevor Project-an LGBTQ+ support organization offering a 24/7 hotline and trained counselors to LGBTQ+ youth- ahead of the release of second single ‘THE WAY IT WAS’ – and hopes the incident brings awareness to the dangers of bullying on the Internet, after receiving hateful comments on one of his TikTok. A portion of the sales from his new merch was donated to the organization.
To support the release of MERIDIAN: Vol 2, Morgxn has been touring around the US with Smallpools, along with a live performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Sara Bareilles.
The world according to morgxn is one where traditional boundaries do not exist. Over the past two years, morgxn has been not so quietly releasing new music , has made festival debuts at Lollapalooza, Firefly, LaurelLive and Hangout Music Festival, toured extensively (X Ambassadors, Phoebe Ryan, Skylar Grey, miike snow, Dreamers, Robert Delong, ARIZONA) and has garnered high praise across the board. Morgxn is also set to release an extended version of MERIDIAN, leading with ‘If I Knew You In A Past Life’.
