Morgan Joanel Invites You Into Her ArtMusic World with Seductive Alt-pop Single 'Disappear'

Fuelled by self-belief and a passion that itself is fuelled by talent and hard work, Morgan Joanel is steadily building a creative empire that spans beyond her native art-form of music into visual and wearable art. An unbridled spirit, Morgan has been a creative force for the last decade Australia-wide and beyond, recently returning to her hometown of Perth to create her latest music release. Whilst her ride from independent to major label artist and back again has been a rollercoaster of big dreams and stifled creativity, the highs and lows have only strengthened her resolve and lifted her game to a world-class standard. Specialising in seductive alt-pop songs, this energy abounds on Morgan's latest single, Disappear – marking the highest point of her storied music career.

Blessed with a smoky, honey-toned voice, Morgan's music has always had an alluring quality, highlighted especially in her evocative live performances where live looping of layered harmonies, beats and guitars showcase her musical abilities. From a creatively frustrating experience signed to the world's largest major label to the freedom and artistic limitlessness of her own independence, Morgan is merging both music and art into a multi-dimensional vision. The concept: a 5 track EP with visual artworks to expand on the music; was funded entirely by her widespread fanbase through a hugely successful Kickstarter and sees the first seeds blooming into life with the stop-motion animation lyric video Morgan has created herself.

Whether singing, songwriting, or creating artworks; her natural curiosity and strong worth ethic has always been at the centre of Morgan's successes, and indeed her happiness. If the excellent standard of her work can be attributed to anything, it is this. Sometimes though, it is a bolt of lightning sent and received without effort or intervention. Lead single Disappear, as the perfect example, was written in 15 minutes... coming completely naturally as if to say the song wrote itself. Ending a bout of writer's block, Disappear came just days before Morgan was scheduled to enter the studio, and was a much welcome sign of good things to come.



From traversing the USA working with Grammy-nominated producers, to hunkering down in Perth's Blackbird Studios with the esteemed team of Adrian Breakspear (Gang Of Youths) and Dave Parkin (Tired Lion, Abbe May) Morgan has experienced more of the music industry than most. Having toured with international stars Adam Lambert, Jason Derulo and Newton Faulkner - it's the Australian's live show that has been captivating people in literally thousands of shows. Building on her live sound of intricate loops and rich husky vocal hooks, Disappear is undoubtedly the right move for Morgan as she proves herself the talent so many others have heralded her to be.
