“A phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep…This woman is on fire.” — The New York Times
Postmodern Jukebox vocalist Morgan James’ “A Very Magnetic Christmas” album is an enchanting trip through the thrills and chills of a long-awaited holiday season with James’ soulful, jazzy, and gospel shuffle takes on classics like “Merry Christmas Baby,” “White Christmas,” “Do You Hear What I Hear,” and “O Holy Night,” with some rarely covered picks like the 1969 Clarence Carter-penned “Back Door Santa” and the cozier close of “Warm in December.”
Morgan James is a Juilliard trained singer, songwriter, actress and recording artist in New York City.
Morgan is currently on tour supporting her fifth studio album, “Nobody’s Fool”. She independently released her studio albums of original soul music, entitled Memphis Magnetic, and A Very Magnetic Christmas recorded to analog tape in Memphis, Tennessee. Other albums include “Reckless Abandon”, which prompted the Huffington Post to call MJ the “Brightest Breakout Artist of the Year”. In addition to her original music, Morgan co-produced and starred in an all-female concept recording of “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Morgan has taken on full album covers of the Beatles’ iconic ‘White Album’, Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”, Jeff Buckley’s “Grace”, and many more. Morgan recorded two full-length albums with Epic Records: “Hunter”and “Morgan James Live, a celebration of Nina Simone“. All of her music can be found on all streaming platforms, and hard copies on her website or at shows.
On Broadway, Morgan was in five back-to-back original companies: The Addams Family (starring Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth), Wonderland, Godspell and Motown: The Musical, and as a guest at Kristin Chenoweth’s For The Girls.
With viral sensation Postmodern Jukebox and with her own YouTube channel, Morgan’s music videos have accumulated more than 285 million views (and climbing).
