Named “Brightest Breakout Artist of the Year” by HuffPost in January 2018, Pop/Soul singer, songwriter and Broadway chanteuse Morgan James returns with her second album, Reckless Abandon

Reckless Abandon is the follow-up to James’ debut album, Hunter and Morgan James Live (Epic Records). She can also be heard on countless theater and concept soundtracks. James shines in adopting a diverse range of musical ideas to recreate them with her own identity and flare. Her rendition of Prince’s “Call My Name” was the last cover to be personally approved by Prince before his death. The track garnered success as it reached Top 15 on Billboard Magazine’s Urban AC chart, while The Wall Street Journal called Hunter “A superb new album.”

Since Hunter’s release, Morgan’s music videos have accumulated more than 75 million views (and climbing). Achieving viral acclaim while appearing in several videos with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, Morgan also joined the collective on globe spanning tours.  As a solo artist, Morgan has performed at such notable venues as the Hollywood Bowl, Montreal Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center.   She continues to wow audiences the world over through electric live performances with her touring band. You won’t want to miss this multitalented performer
