Morgan Weidinger graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2017 after 4 years on a full-tuition scholarship. Five Months later she released her independent debut album, Fairchild, and moved to New York City. Over the last 8 months she has performed over 50 self-booked shows in and around NYC, including a few on Riker’s Island. She is a sound and word bender that disrupts the customary of what we do with a violin, guitar, and human voice. In her solo live performance she fills an entire room with layers of sound using a loop pedal and various analog, tone changing effects. She is a mirror, a reporter, and a vessel though which music and poetry flows.
