We’ve captured another one of our favourite new popstars to force our six questions down their throat. Today, you have the pleasure of getting to know Morgan Mallory, an alternative singer/songwriter.
Tell us why we should listen to you in 140 characters or less…
Morgan Mallory is not responsible for damage to joints, internal organs, or mental state due to excessive dancing and feelings of jubilation.
If you had to compare the sound of your music to a crisp flavour, which would you pick and how do they relate?
Grilled lamb and mint jelly. If you’ve never had it, I suggest you remedy that this evening.
What was the first single you ever bought and has it inspired the music that you release today?
The first single I ever paid for with my own money wasn’t a single, but the entire Michael Jackson record, ‘Dangerous’, when I was 8 or 9 years old. I bet if you listen to that record today, you would hear the blueprint for any Rihanna or Kanye West album. To say MJ was a major influence on me would be an understatement. At such a young age, his music introduced me to a gold standard of creative audio production and emotional vocal performance, not to mention social/political awareness.
Picture the scene… You have found a time machine and been sent back to the year 1996. You have been selected to become the sixth member of a band known as the Spice Girls. What would your nickname be?
Oh that’s easy – Fuzzy Spice. Although, that actually sounds horrifying. Just imagine what that would look like.
If you were given a pet cat and told you had to name it after an existing popstar, what would you name it?
I think my initial response would be to say, “excuse me, you just gifted me a cat. I can name it whatever I want”, until I realise how fabulous it would be to have a cat named Shed Sheeran.
Can you tell us that you love us?
