"Inspired songwriting and passionate performances." -Billboard Magazine"Serious musical chops." -Pollstar"Disarmingly unselfconscious." -The New York Times
Blake Morgan's ongoing sold-out concert series at NYC's Rockwood Music Hall--now at 15 months and counting--has fueled an extraordinary string of headlining performances for the artist around the globe. With nearly 70 concerts across 30,000 miles of touring, Morgan has recently headlined his first large-scale solo tours of Germany, the West Coast of the United States, and the United Kingdom where he made his London debut.
There's no sign of slowing down in 2017--Morgan's run at Rockwood has been extended for a full second season, along with major West Coast and UK tours now in place for the Spring.
The Washington Post writes, "He's got killer pop-rock instincts, something that leaps out at you...a natural when it comes to fashioning sharp melodies and catchy choruses." Billboard Magazine adds, "Blake Morgan has a voice that was made to be heard on the radio...inspired songwriting and passionate performances."
Native New Yorker Blake Morgan is a recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and the founder and owner of ECR Music Group, a global music company which operates under an elemental principle unprecedented in the music world: all of its artists and labels own one-hundred percent of their master recordings.
"Janita mesmerizes." --Paste Magazine"This woman's got the goods. Stardom awaits." --Billboard Magazine"She sings with such passion and conviction that it's hard to take your eyes off her." -The Telegraph (UK)
The buzz and anticipation surrounding Brooklyn-based artist Janita (pronounced YA-nee-tuh) is as unsurprising as it is palpable. Standing room only concerts and sold out festivals in the United States and Europe have cemented her reputation as an electrifying artist whose breakthrough moment has arrived. Now, on the heels of her 2016 large-scale tours of Germany and the West Coast of the U.S., Janita has just made her London debut and is underway with her first artist-in-residence concert series ever, at The Bowery Electric in New York City.
Critical acclaim fused with commercial success may be rare in the music world, but this happy combination continues to be Janita's norm: "Janita mesmerizes...her distinctive vocals are her stand-out asset, ranging between an edgier Feist and a softer Florence Welch," declares Paste Magazine. Baeble Music adds, "Janita continues to mark her self as an artist capable of producing music of great beauty and unsettling power." Billboard Magazine simply proclaims, "This woman's got the goods. Stardom awaits."
Janita is already set for major tours in 2017, in the United Kingdom and on the West Coast of the U.S., as she continues to promote the Deluxe Edition release of her breakthrough new album, Didn't You, My Dear?
