N.K. Morton is a New York-based singer-songwriter. She has shared her talents with many artists, leaving her calling card of soulfulness with each project. Most of her early work was spent behind the scenes, where she wrote songs for Backstreet Boys, Mýa, and Karen Clark-Sheard, worked in television with Chris Rock, and was a featured lead or background vocalist for artists, ranging from Diana Ross to Rakim. N.K. Morton believes this journey has prepared her for her next chapter as a solo artist.
When asked what inspires her artistry, she replied, "When I see happy faces and bodies in motion, while a great song is playing, I am inspired. If I'm moved to tears and reflection or a song provides solace, it reinforces my belief that music plays an integral role in our lives. We've all experienced moments, where a song has transported us back in time. That song is a part of your life's soundtrack. Whether you danced or cried, you felt the impact and it's in those moments we find inspiration."
When asked what she hopes to contribute to the musical conversation, N.K. Morton replied, "It's sometimes challenging to find music that promotes love, compassion, and empathy. I enjoy music in all its forms, but I long for music that speaks to my joys, sorrows, frustrations, and gives voice to my desires, so I hope to contribute another path that helps us reconnect to the depth, passion, and vulnerability of the human experience."
N.K. Morton has something to say, and she wants you to feel it.
