A dynamic emerging young singer, guitarist, songwriter, and recording-engineer named Crosby Morgan is someone I caught live while she was busking on the Venice Beach boardwalk on a sunny Southern California day. It was love at first listen. The way she touched and plucked her strings was what sucked me in like magic, picking so smooth rambling like a freight train that it grabbed my ear and spun me around to look as she was heading into the very first song of hers that I feel lucky to have come upon. Bought her record, referenced in the above photo and heard all of her songs, not once, but for numerous enchanting spins.
Her voice, the way I heard it live, had a purity that kind of reminds me of early Joni Mitchell. This is not meant to insinuate that Crosby is emulating anyone, because she most certainly is not. She is doing her own thing and it's sweet.
A thing I like about her is that on her webpage bio, she has willingly hung out her personal story of mental illness that emerged many years ago and explains that she has used songwriting and the time she loves to spend as a recording engineer as therapy. It's proof that beautiful things like good music can sprout and emerge out of adverse times.
She has been paying her dues busking and honing her skills in the fine craft of recording. Her music, her presence and her obvious artistic & personal sensitivity has an authenticism that is delightful as it comes across in her music on the street live and in her recordings. After hearing some of her story, it is apparent that she's a real dedicated artist to the core and she rates high on this network's list of artists who are worthy of attention by music lovers everywhere.
