Morgan O'Kane

Charlottesville, North Carolina native Morgan O'Kane's music exists in a world of contrasts. Old, mountain-borne folk music approached with a youthful vivaciousness. A country foundation tempered by busking in New York City's subway system. An agile, lively banjo, complimented by a haunting, deep rasp.
His full length debut, Nine Lives displays a wealth of folk heritage, a new vision of americana spanning from appalachia to bluegrass.
