Morningsiders are a NYC folk-pop act known for their unique indie music that bridges the gap between virtuosic, intimate live moments and gorgeously atmospheric studio-produced pop song prowess. Having met and formed at Columbia University, the three co-founders—Magnus Ferguson, vocals/guitar; Reid Jenkins, fiddle/vocals; and Robert Frech, piano—have evolved from an Americana collective comprised of rotating members and improvisatory performances into today’s guitar-fiddle-piano trio more focused on songcraft and production. First making a name for themselves on a national level when their song “Empress” topped Spotify’s Viral 50 in 2015 and was featured in a Starbucks commercial featuring Oprah Winfrey. They then went on to work with celebrated maestro Peter Katis.
