—The Charlotte Observer

“He’s got killer pop-rock instincts, something that leaps out at you . . . as well as a flair for recalling the days of pre-digital sound mixes. He has good reason to be excited here, given the sheer consistency and accessibility of the music . . . a natural when it comes to fashioning sharp melodies and catchy choruses.”
—The Washington Post

—Blender Magazine

“Blake Morgan’s music captures you in the first moments of listening to it. It is magical. Who he is as a musician is layered throughout it—from his classical roots, global interests, life struggles, creative background, and his purposeful way of living. This isn’t music for music sake or for music sales; it is for the soul, from his soul, and is a remarkable display of his level of talent. Diamonds In The Dark is undeniably a rare, audible treasure.”
—EyesIn Magazine

**** (Four Stars) “An independent in the best sense of the word . . . Pay close attention; he’s just getting warmed up. You don’t need to read the liner notes to hear the huge Beatles influence from the very first measure. But this music is contemporary and plenty edgy. It’s hard Beatles: freshly perfect harmonies, airy arrangements, meaty hooks. Radio-ready, they’re good to go . . . from the guitar-powered buzz to the disarming vocals. Not a trick is missed. And all to stunning effect. Take note; you’ll be hearing a lot more about Blake Morgan.”

(Editor’s Pick) “Blake Morgan’s knack for sprinkling pop-rock ingredients into a pie that bakes at 400 degrees of sweltering heat producing some of the most delicious bites that a music listener could take is uncanny. While pop’s rock side is a formula that’s well established, Blake deviates from it with nifty verses that are catchier than the choruses and intriguing bridges that call into question the typical rock standard. With exceptional songwriting skills at his side, Blake Morgan has everything that embodies the modern marvel of music mayhem.”
