Music can be a therapeutic release, not only for the listener but for the songwriters as well. Through writing her new single, “Fake It,” LA-based pop act Morgan St. Jean realized that a quote she had previously lived her life by – “fake til you make it” – was no longer a saying she related to. Instead, St. Jean decided she needed live in the present and live her truth, even if that meant being vulnerable. After all, sometimes being vulnerable can actually end up being the more empowering than faking it. As St. Jean explains, “somehow in writing this song and just letting myself feel all of the things I was feeling, I healed and became a much more confident and authentic person.”
“Fake It” is available everywhere today and premiered exclusively on Atwood Magazine earlier this week. Atwood Magazine complimented newcomer Morgan St. Jean on her ability to encapsulate “a complete, unfiltered emotional whirlwind effectively chronicling acceptance and anguish, and their intriguing intersection” throughout the course of “Fake It.”
Morgan St. Jean is an LA based pop artist characterized by her unique powerhouse voice and the honest songs to match. A recent graduate of USC’s Thornton School of Music, St. Jean has been deemed “one of the finest storytellers of today’s pop music” (Pop Dust).
Bold and uninhibited, St. Jean’s music is all about empowering herself and others. Drawing inspiration from vocal legends like Adele and Christina Aguilera, combined with modern production inspired by the likes of Lorde and Halsey, Morgan’s sound is a unique addition to the current pop landscape.
St. Jean’s debut single “Addicted” was synced on Fox’s hit TV show STAR. She will be releasing her debut EP, The Good, The Bad and The Crazy this Fall.
