ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Stranger in the Mirror' is Morgan's 2nd recording project and her first full-length album. As a classically trained pianist, Morgan's music echoes the classical style. You can hear hints of Beethoven and Mozart like whispers behind the scenes. It is alternative meets classical meets rock meets pop meets experimental. Morgan writes predominately pianistically centered lyrical ballads with words of sharp honesty that bare the soul and tell a story. “Each song tells a story. Maybe it’s real, maybe it’s not, or maybe only part of it is real. If I was going through a really tough time, I’d go to the piano and work it out there, because that was really one of the only places I felt comfortable revealing emotions.” The album spans nearly 7 years of the young artist's compositional life. “Reflection” was written when I was 17, “Fragile Little Me” when I was 20. I consider songs like these as gifts because they helped pull me out of really hard times. When I wrote them, I wasn’t thinking that I’d ever make a CD. Initially they were just diary entries of a kind. Then, when I started to see a pattern in the songs and my passion for performing and sharing with others grew, I thought “these would make a really good themed album.”

"So…the theme is personal growth of a sort. Although men can listen to (and I hope they will), it’s specifically the story of a woman’s personal growth in our modern society. There are water and grave symbols dispersed throughout because there is a baptism involved….a resurrection. Although I grew up in the church and I am familiar with the Bible’s symbolism, I don’t mean it in this way. What I mean is traveling down a path in life only to find that to go any farther and to be happy, you must kill the part of yourself that’s sabotaging you. 'Requiem' is not a suicide song, it’s a salvation song. It’s about the death of the part of myself that allowed me to let others in that shouldn’t be let in. The last words are, 'and as I wave goodbye to all that I must leave behind, I begin to breathe new life.' My message to everyone is that they can release whatever force is imprisoning them (maybe it’s their own) and start again. At the end of this journey of change, you can look in the mirror and find that you are a new creature. You won’t even recognize yourself. That is where the title of the album comes from."
