Alex Morgen Jeder Spielt Die Rolle Seines Lebens
Itâ€˜s all worthless! ...or is it!? This is exactly the question the Berlin singer and songwriter ALEX MORGEN asked himself in spring 2020 when he released his debut album â€žVom Siegen & Scheiternâ€œ shortly before the start of the Corona Pandemic. At the time, the Schallmagazin wrote that MORGENâ€˜s â€žrough, scratchy voice combined with the pure guitar playing would convey exactly the emotions that are often neglected in smooth-ironed studio productionsâ€œ and therefore called his album â€žLebendige Musikâ€œ. Exactly this authenticity and this character were always very important to the singer and songwriter in his songs. The question of whether it is still worth recording an entire album in these fast-moving times, in which it is all about which playlists you end up in as an artist, never arose for the Berliner. For him, the true class of an artist is reflected in the quality of his albums and only secondarily in the individual songs. So during the first lockdown, MORGEN locked himself back in his home studio and wrote new songs. Together with producer Christian Kreutzer, the last two recorded 13 songs over the next two years. Different genres were incorporated stylistically, but oriented towards the sound of the 80s. Somewhere between Bruce Springsteen, Herbert GrÃ¶nemeyer and Eddie Money, garnished with a modern note Ã la â€žthe Weekndâ€œ, the albumâ€˜s own character â€žEveryone plays the role of their lifeâ€œ finally followed.
