Of Note: ‘Open Heart’
by Morgan Page (feat. Lissie)
Morgan Page got his start early. He did an internship at the German record label Plastic City - when he was in GRADE SCHOOL! While in high school he had his own show on the University of Vermont’s radio station. And while attending college at Emerson College in Boston, he managed WERS 88.9 and had his own weekend shows.
Over the years, in addition to his own releases, he has remixed a plethora of artists, including: Regina Spektor, Madonna, Adam Lambert, Alanis Morissette, Nelly Furtado, Stevie Nicks, Tegan & Sara, Coldplay, Korn, and Norah Jones, just to name a few.
2008 was the year I first became aware of Mr. Page. A single, ‘The Longest Road’, featuring longtime collaborator Lissie, got a lot of repeat listens. I was quite taken with both the vocals and the song itself.
Fast forward to June of 2015 and we find Mr. Page revisiting that sound, but with a guile lushness heretofore only hinted at. ‘Open Heart’ is a winner out of the gate and Lissie’s vocals are as stellar as ever, poignantly ripe with a vulnerability that reveals both tenderness and strength.
‘Open Heart’ is currently in high rotation on the Twin Cities own Pride 97.6.
