Singer-songwriter Megan Morrison has played in her fair share of local bands, including Dorothy's Surrender and Revolver, but in 2019, she stepped out into a new genre all on her own. The first hint she was headed in a new direction came in March, when Morrison released "Warrior Woman," a collaboration with beatmaker Miichii. Just a few days later came her solo track "9 Lives," on which the operatic vocalist keeps her vocals midrange to sing about overcoming dark periods in her life. "Now that I'm living peacefully/No one can take that away from me," Morrison sings as her voice floats stoically above the beat. She could be singing about the past substance abuse she's been open about in interviews. Or perhaps she's singing about overcoming the fear of navigating the ups and downs of the music business as an independent artist. No matter the inspiration, Megan Morrison is crafting songs almost anyone can relate to.
