EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Meet Killian Morgan
Killian Morgan is a twenty-two year old singer-songwriter who has a fresh sound and a killer voice. She had a contract with a professional ballet company and was on track to have a professional dance career when she realized the playing her guitar and writing music is what made her the happiest. The result was that she left behind a career of dance to be able to pursue the world of music. She’s a sweet soul and hopeful we’ll get to hear big things from her someday. I was able to do a short interview with Killian about how she feels about her music and who some of her influences are.
How would you describe yourself as an artist?
Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
Like all kids, I believe I am a reflection of my family’s eclectic musical tastes. My dad was an acoustic guitar player who was very influenced by artists such as Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor and even John Denver. There is definitely also a strong folk music influence, as well: from celtic to bluegrass. I am all over the place! As far as popular artists go, Miranda Lambert, Fleetwood Mac, Alison Krauss and again, there is no one like James Taylor :)
Never. Music is the reason that I found satisfaction in dance. As I grew older, that realization began to crystallize for me. Music feeds my soul in a way that dance never did. There are times, when I miss it, of course, especially the performances, but I don’t regret the decision to change focus. I reached the goals that I had set for myself in that area and wanted to extend myself, artistically. There is nothing I love more than music.
Where’s the one place you would love to perform?
Danny Elfman. I have always loved his voice ever since my first introduction to him in Nightmare Before Christmas. My mom tells the story that he was my first crush, (well, his voice as Jack the Pumpkin King.) I told everyone that I was going to marry him. Actually, I still have a crush on the skeleton and his voice just melts me. Probably not who you were expecting!
