Chrissy Morgan spends a lot of time lending her voice to the projects of others, but these days, she's ready to step into the forefront.
The singer, who performs with the likes of Joe Jaber, R.J. Dempster, The Sights and others, said that at first, she found herself enjoying being in the background, as she didn't want to have to be the one to deal with the business side of the industry.
However, she eventually realized that she was itching to make the decisions - both creative and business ones - and decided to start pursuing a solo career.
"I found myself kind of wanting to take over," she told host Pam Rossi. "And I'm like, 'You know what - just do your own project. Let these people live their lives and just do it yourself.'"
"I wanted [the songs> to be something that nobody's heard from me," Morgan explained of her decision to record an album of love songs. "To bring out kind of these sweeter songs after doing the rock band thing for so long. And then the other thing about legacy is, 'What are the songs that my nieces and nephews could appreciate in the long term?' Let's start with simple love songs, and then we'll go from there."
Morgan doesn't have a solid release date for the album quite yet, but is definitely planning to drop it sometime this year.
In the meantime, you can catch Chrissy Morgan and Her Fabulous Band performing around the Detroit area, with gigs coming up all throughout the month of January.
