Krian Music Group, a full service independent record label, has announced the signing of 'Rasta-Rock' artiste and Morgan Heritage percussionist/vocalist, Mojo Morgan.

New Dawn, the lead single off Morgan's full-length solo debut (title tbd), will be available, digitally, on December 4.

Mojo Morgan is used to being in the spotlight, but it is from his personal and medical life that Mojo recently found himself thrust in the media. Amid recording with his siblings on their latest album, the youngest band member was rushed to the hospital. A combination of personal stress and viral infection gave Mojo time for reflection while hospitalised and his recent single, New Dawn, took an even deeper meaning.

No rest for the weary as Mojo Morgan announces that he has signed with Krian Music Group and is focusing and going full speed ahead with his solo career.

Mojo Morgan has been signed with top independent publishing company, The Royalty Network, since 2006. When searching for a label to release his debut solo album, Morgan looked to The Royalty Network's independent label, Krian Music Group.

achieving our goal

"Signing to Krian Music comes at a time in my career when getting my music to the right audience is key, mainly because of my diverse sound. With Krian, the dream becomes a reality and we look forward to achieving our goal of providing good music for people from all walks of life," remarked Mojo Morgan.

"After fighting through a near life-threatening encounter, as I did last month, you tend to revamp your outlook on life. My single New Dawn has become more relevant in my personal life. I hope to provide listeners with a vehicle to always look on the brighter side of a bad situation and the song gives me a second chance at doing just that."

Morgan's 'Rasta Rock' combines alternative, reggae, and hip-hop music with Top 40 hits. The lead single, New Dawn, represents the 'Rasta Rock' movement perfectly, drawing inspiration from those diverse genres. The uplifting track, which samples Nina Simone's Feeling Good, has an old-school vibe mixed with a contemporary beat.

New Dawn, featuring Mojo's brother, Peetah Morgan, has garnered success from Jamaica to Ghana, Miami, New York and San Francisco, boasting impressive radio airplay in those markets.

"Mojo's a real workhorse of an artiste. He truly gets what it takes to be successful as an artiste and is as hungry as we are to make his release a hit," stated Frank Liwall, president and Founder of The Royalty Network and Krian Music Group. Adding, "New Dawn is the perfect introduction, as it reflects Mojo's true Alternative side."
