Morgan Kennedy’s passion for music runs deep – as deep as the lyrics from a Bernie Taupin song. She doesn’t remember a time in her life when music wasn’t the most important aspect of living.
Initially, as many journalists, she started off as a musician singing in a duo in her younger years and building a short solo career following that.
Although singing was a passion of hers, she realized that while creating music feels like soft kisses on the forehead, writing about it and dealing with the business of it is as intoxicating as a full blown love affair.
Born in Baltimore, the Charm City, a city known for its’ hardcore rap songs filled with violent imagery, she found a way to be exposed to all kinds of music. Her music tastes range from the grit of old school Hip-Hop to the pulsing beat of electronic dance music. She can appreciate it all!

Born and raised in the birthplace of Funk, and arguably the birthplace of Rock n’ Roll, music is in my veins.
If names like Bootsy Collins, and the Ohio Players ring a bell, then you know where I come from.
As a musician and poet myself, I have an appreciation for art that hasn’t been inundated by the agendas of major labels and networks.
Recently I’ve been sharing music and connecting with artists via social media. Follow me on Instagram

Hailing from “Screwston,” Texas, Hope has been immersed in music since birth, first being exposed to Motown by her parents, then discovering her love for all genres as she trained as a dancer.
Her unique set of life experiences growing up in Houston’s Historic Third Ward as a lower middle class child, attending schools in more affluent neighborhoods, all the while attending an international church in which she was very involved, created her open-minded approach to music and art. Hope is very socially conscious, and prefers to take songs as a whole – both lyrically and sonically – before making her final judgment on their quality.
As a dancer, she is inclined to be interested to anything she can move to, but her Dirty South roots give her room to appreciate a more laidback, chill (screwed) vibe. Her taste in music continues to change as she discovers new artists and as genres evolve.
