Morgan Page has certainly come along way from his native Vermont (Emerson Graduate). On his third full-length album for Nettwerk Records (April 3, 2012), the Los Angeles-based artist strikes a brilliant balance between kinetic house music and blissful, radio-ready pop. Touting club anthems with the right dose of indie and pop flourishes, Page creates a danceable, diverse, and deep collection of songs.
He began crafting this collection in early 2010. In between stints on the road, Page assembled an all-star cast of guests to appear on these original tracks. That cast includes Tegan &Sara on “Body Work” and “Video,” Jonathan Mendelsohn and Andy Caldwell on “Where Did You Go?” Greg Laswell on”Addicted”, and a powerhouse combination of BT, Sultan, and Ned Shepard and Angela McCluskey (Télépopmusik) on the record’s first single “In the Air.” The lead track rises from an elegantly enticing electro haze into an infectious hook, moving from progressive house into propulsive pop.
The mega-collaboration resulted in a #1 hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart. Despite a long history of Top 10 successes — “LongestRoad,“”CallMyName,” “Fight ForYou” and “StrangeCondition” – “In The Air” is Page’s first #1single. When asked by Billboard Magazine about his career achievement, Page humbly answers, “it just got an immediate genuine response from people that blew me away.”
