"In recent years, Engine Company Records, an independent label in New York founded by Blake Morgan, has had success with contemporary artists . . . (This) might seem a risky venture. But the music is terrific, and the performances compelling." —The New York Times
Three of New York City’s finest recording artists perform together on the same stage in the first-ever Engine Company Records label showcase. Melissa Giges and David Cloyd will be celebrating the worldwide release of their debut albums, joined by national recording artist and ECR founder Blake Morgan, who will debut new songs from his forthcoming album and perform fan favorites. Backed by a full band, all three artists will be sharing the stage, performing their songs as a triple-bill.

The song, from her debut album EVIDENT, is now the fastest selling track in ECR history. "Melissa Giges is already doing what she wants to do—singing the songs she writes . . . deeply personal songs." —Roberta Hershenson, The New York Times

Unhand Me, You Fiend, Cloyd’s debut album, has already hit 1 on eMusic’s Album Charts. eMusic is the world’s largest retailer of independent music and the world’s second-largest digital music retailer overall.

"And for Cloyd, all those possibilities finally seem within reach." —Adam Sternbergh, New York Magazine

Billboard Magazine writes, "Morgan has a voice that was made to be heard on the radio." Now, Blake Morgan returns to the stage to debut never-before-heard songs, as well as perform fan favorites from his albums ANGER’S CANDY, BURNING DAYLIGHT, and SILENCER. "Maverick recording artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Blake Morgan’s studio chops, smart lyrics, and gift for the melodic twist have earned him a loyal critical and commercial following." —All Music Guide
